Were there layoffs at anomaly? I heard a huge chunk of their creative department was let go but haven’t seen any news. Hope everyone’s ok if so 😞

I’ve been laid off twice in the past 12 months. Both places were start ups, but I’m worried my whole career is going to be like this as a creative. It seems like we’re the first to go. Thoughts?

I’m a junior creative with 2 years of experience under my belt. Im getting laid off. How common is this? How do you not lose hope?

Is it noteworthy to have worked in the creative industry for 23 years -18 in advertising, without ever being fired or laid-off? Are there medals or gold watches for that?

Anyone else come from creative? I made the move about a year ago after being laid off (out of necessity, junior strat roles in creative were hard to come by), and have found the transition...

Laid off for the first time. With company growth our in-house creative team was transitioned to a outside agency, I was aware it was coming. That said, who has successfully negotiated their severance?

I was just laid off from a mid-sized B2B agency trying to go creative and changing their mind. Any advice on the portfolio since the creative is... lacking?

What's a creative to do when they need to leave their current agency, but it seems like every big shop in LA has had layoffs for one reason or another, so no one is hiring? 😫

Strategists never get fired. Next to Account. Creative and production are chopped first. To make the insult worse, Strategists get hired faster everywhere. Perceived value is everything.

Laid off but left a creative team that was 60% poc. Loved how the camaraderie and support made me more comfortable and productive. Any agencies with a similar community hiring mid-level designers?
