    This is an excellent question and something I've been thinking about lately. Let's just say I've been a designer and developer for a very long time and have been thinking about how to become a creative director somewhere. I've worked in small studios and freelance my entire career soI haven't made any strong networking connections with larger agencies that have more need of experienced creative directors.

      I'm curious as to how you balance the two. I'm also a designer and a developer, and have grown into a rather strong web developer. I've found that as my career has progressed, my employers always push me more towards to the development side of the work, so it's been very difficult to maintain a balance as a designer and developer. I love both, I get very excited for both, and I feel at times it creates a bit of alienation between me and designers that don't have much code knowledge.
