    Yes. Push yourself outside your comfort zone. I think constantly keeping yourself on the edge of what you are comfortable with will help you developer in ways you never imagined.

    That being said, your comfort zone can be crossed in many different directions. Maybe you want to be an amazing illustrator, photographer or marketeer. Do what interest you :-)

    When it comes to places to start, I suggest moving into a place / role where you can work with developers. You want to start and be able to ask questions. People will be excited to see a designer that wants to collaborate in their field of expertise :)
