Hi everyone! I am a mid-level freelance graphic designer, 26y/o who has been working independently for the past 3 years. I’m interested in leveling up, either to a senior design role or art director role at a design agency and looking for feedback on my current website before reaching out to studios. Appreciate any suggestions or thoughts. THANK YOU

I work at a small agency. I asked for a raise and was told you can get one in a few months if you do X,Y,Z but also keep in mind you make (on the low end of) what your position should make. My question is—I wear many hats within my agency because we’re small and growing—So while I may be an art director, when needed I’m also a PA, or a production designer etc... SO shouldn’t my salary reflect that??

How have you incorporated higher end brands into your daily wardrobe?

I feel like my energy is getting wasted and would be happier focusing on slides and presentations only, but I’m afraid it’ll hurt my career trajectory. But I also heard presentation designers make a lot. Thoughts?
