How to make it in the web design industry

Tobias van Schneider

Making a name for yourself in the design industry takes time, skill and patience. It's not just about having a show-stopping design portfolio: this fast-paced industry means creative folk need to continually look for ways to upskill so you can lead from the front. (Save time on your portfolio site build with a website builder, and be sure to get the right support from your web hosting.)

Tobias van Schneider was born in Germany, raised in Austria, and now lives and works in New York City. He's gone from self-taught beginnings to lead product designer and art director at Spotify, and is currently the co-founder of Semplice, a portfolio tool for designers.
