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.

Being a creative is having imposter syndrome until you get laid off for turning 40

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? 😫

Has any creative ever been motivated by a new CCO stomping in and and telling the team they suck? You are not Don Draper. You sound like every other asshole who’ll get fired in 8 months.

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?
