What's the best course of action for sending work for an interview, but not being able to show your any recent work because of NDA/contract restrictions?
I plan to leave a larger agency for a smaller, but mighty, start up gig. It pays better and I will have a stronger role. Will taking a b2b and smaller job hurt me agency wise in the future?
I have a couple pricing questions for you all. How much do you charge to create a logo? How much do you charge to create a brand identity system? How much do you charge for packaging designs?
Need advice on a title change. I manage a team of 6 designers/photogs. I'd like to become Design Director but I don't know if this will hurt me in the long-run? I'm 28 & have been at my company 5yrs.
Switching careers into UX, recently finished a UX bootcamp. I can’t get a straight answer from the instructors on UX job title definitions and responsibilities (cont’d)
Looking to switch things up... anyone have an leads on junior visual or experience design positions, preferably in the financial sector?
Do you ever feel like your work is amateur? I’ve been doing this for years and people will say it looks great, but idk. Perhaps I’m comparing myself to my inspirations but everything feels so WIP...
How often would you say you disagree with your creative director? I find myself disagreeing with their opinions from time to time but they also don’t have a design background...
What do you do when your passion causes anxiety? I love design. But it stresses me out and I no longer enjoy it. My passion has become my job, and I hate it. And I hate myself for feeling this way.
I’ve been in the advertising industry for 2 1/2 years now and I’ve realized that I only really like designing and don’t love concepting (shocker, I know). Should I not be in advertising?
Looking back what’s one important thing you learned from school that benefited you in your day to day job? was it worth the cost?
Do people deal with first day jitters when they start a new job. Specifically a job in an area they don’t consider to be their specialty? I’ve been mostly print and brand focused, new job is digital.
Anyone used Ceros before? Pros/cons? Currently looking into the pricing, which seems high ($30K annually)
is it beneficial to stand out or should I ‘dial it down’ when applying for jobs? I use humor in my cover letter and include my interests, as a tactic to intrigue interest.Im pretty normal in person :)
Switching careers into UX. Dot voting and design studios go against everything I’ve ever been taught about creative ideation. I feel like it’s done to appease egos rather than to get the best results.
Portfolio advice; what do recruiters/senior designers look for in a juniors UX design portfolio? I have a ton of process pieces on my website and while recruiters seem interested I cant find a job
