Dennis Field

Hi! I’m Dennis, and I help designers shape their careers.

Welcome! I’m a designer, the co-founder of Greenline Creative, and I work at InVision. My passion is simple: I strive to help other designers get the most out of themselves and their careers. I do this through writing, speaking, consulting, and various other services & tools. Throughout my journey as a designer and creator, I’ve been fortunate to gain a wide range of experiences; some of which are positive, others less so. This is where I share them so that you too can learn from them.

10 Attributes of a Successful Designer NEW

The other day, I started thinking about the designers that I’ve encountered throughout my career. Some of them have impacted me in ways they probably don’t realize. These people inspire(d) me with not just their work, but also by being great people and life mentors. They’re always on top of their game, they balance their lives, and they “own” their careers. More importantly, they are the type of designers that have depth to them. They are built on more than just having great design chops and striving to have great designs that inspire. I started thinking deeper about these industry-leading designers to determine what qualities and attributes they consist of and what qualities I find have worked well in my career.

5 ways to start building a successful brand today

I’ve been designing logos and creating brands for companies for nearly a decade. In fact, much of the early work we did at Greenline Creative was focussed primarily on brand development and website creation for companies who were just breaking ground. This was the most rewarding work I’ve ever done, so I’m extremely happy to share with you some of the principles that we followed to create engaging brands.

Scaling Design

One of the hardest things that you have to do as a designer is scale yourself – whether you bring on other designers as contractors to help you with your client work, or work as a design leader who's looking to scale the team. I've been in a number of environments over my career. Some were super established and already had a "system" in place, but I've also been in small startups (and ran my own studio) where we had to take the first step towards scaling. It's not an easy task by any means, and it can be a bit scary, but through these experiences I've noticed a few things. Hopefully, they'll help you if you're struggling with or thinking about scale. Learn how to scale great design beyond yourself.
