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:

Let it go… Let it go… NEW

I’m a new dad. 9 months ago, my daughter was introduced to Frozen, and she’s now officially hooked. For all the parents who are reading this, you know what that means.

Ironically though, when reflecting on the last few months, I couldn’t help but notice that designers and the industry could learn a thing or two from this movie. I'll point out a couple of them here.   What can the industry learn from by watching the movie Frozen?

Recap: Filming the InVision Course With Lynda.

I was recently invited to film an introductory course on InVision at Lynda. Since this was a brand new experience for me, I figured I'd snap some photos and document my journey. I hope this serves as a handy guide to anyone who wants to (or is prepping to) film a course with Lynda. Read what it's like to film a course with Lynda.

What Is Design?

What is design? Have you given any thought to it? Believe it or not, design is not just about the fonts, colors, images, or layout a designer chooses. Yes, we call it designing and the result is often called a design, but really design is about problem solving. Great design solves real business challenges. Learn the true definition of design.
