@TALKANATALKA
AIGAUPSTNY PORTFOLIO WORKSHOP
HELLO!
I’M NATALIE:
PROJECT MANAGER, TECH LEAD, FORMER GRAPHIC
DESIGNER, FREELANCER, REMOTE CONTRACTOR, CAT
LOVER, PAJAMA WEARER, ETC
I’VE WORKED
WITH:
AGENCIES, DESIGN STUDIOS, DEV SHOPS, A PAPER
MANUFACTURER, A UNIVERSITY, AND NOW MYSELF.
IN SCHOOL,
YOU LEARN A LOT ABOUT AGENCY OR STUDIO LIFE, BUT
NOT NECESSARILY HOW TO GET THERE YOURSELF.
WHEN I
GRADUATED,
I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS DOING.
SO HERE’S
WHAT I’VE
FOUND
USEFUL
(EVEN LONG AFTER GRADUATING)
