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.

My Latest Lessons:

What are you reading? NEW

When I brought minimalism into my life, I decided to unload most of my books, and have become pretty intentional about what books I bring back into my life. Any book that sits on my shelf today is likely a book that I reference on a pretty regular basis and have genuinely read. Even though I appreciate a nice full bookshelf, I've tried really hard this year to declutter mine. Why? Simple. It gives me intense anxiety knowing that I have books on my shelf that I've bought and have not finished. These feelings can distract me from the things that matter most. Please don't read this thinking that I'm reading less these days. In fact, I'm reading the same if not more than I have in well over a year. I just have changed my approach. Here’s how I manage to read three books a month.

Hidden Costs

The total cost of ownership or TCO refers to the total cost of owning something. This takes into consideration both the purchase price and hidden costs over the length of you owning this item.  Learn more about TCO.

Floating

I recently closed myself in a tank full of Epsom salt and floated in complete darkness for an hour. I loved every minute of it. Learn more about setting parameters and expectations.
