What’s the best thing about your job?
I love what I do. And if you are reading this, odds are you do too.
Enjoying the opportunity to work on projects with as much passion and excitement as my clients. Coming up with new ways to display information across a multitude of devices. Creating designs, sketching, seeing and shaping ideas before they even exist… Brilliant.
As creatives we get to shape the direction the internet and its users (which these days is almost the entire planet), how can that not be exciting. We’ve (Paul and myself) created a close knit team of amazing people who aren’t simply colleagues, they share my desire and want for a creative and exciting digital space.
On occasion, standing in the middle of the studio I catch myself smiling without realising it. That’s how it should be, I’m happy. Work will always be such a major part of most of our lives, I feel blessed I get to love it.
What’s the best thing about my job, all of it.
And the worst?
The reality is, there simply isn’t enough hours in the days, the weeks, the years. Be able to attend every meet up, every conference, every talk just isn’t possible. You feel like you missing out, when the truth is you’re in the thick of it.
There are so many amazing things going on all over the world and being at the next SXSW is so high on my priority list for 2013. Thats right, its May 2012 and I’m already planning for March 2013. Reading Jay Fanelli’s answer, he’s spot on. Running a digital agency is just that. 25% design, 75% business.
I’m lucky enough have an amazing bunch of fine folk I call friends, you call them Carter’s Digital HTTPsters.
