Your transition is more likely to be considered as a natural progression. It would help to share your trials and tribulations - continue the conversation on twitter?

@AndrewShipe I usually try to support a local cause and offer redesign suggestions. You can also try volunteer based sites like volunteermatch.com, sparked.com and catchafire.com.

I find that most pro bono projects are looking to redesign their sites. I've done a few of those by providing mockups to some and IA recommendations to others. Is it normal to see these volunteered tasks reflected in portfolios?
