(1/2) Did she steal my work? I was a creative designer for an e-comm company last year. While I was there I hand drew a digital illustration for a package design assignment. They ended up repurposing it for a print on a dress. I haven’t added it to my portfolio yet, but I just came across my illustration on a portfolio. The girl who replaced me after I quit took my line work from the illustration and slapped their logo in the middle and put it on her portfolio as her work for the brand.

Did you do a contract at all? If you were freelance at the company did the contract state that they own any IP you've created? If you were commissioned as an illustrator to make these then a contract would be involved concerning the IP you created.

There's your answer then. There will be other projects but just make sure to negotiate better contracts.

(2/2) She also used my illustration for her package design for an eyeliner. Nothing has been changed, all the lines are the same, she just removed the background. Am I crazy for being upset?? Since my work technically belongs to the brand can she use my work and claim it’s hers? Should I let this go or would it be justified to ask her to take the illustration down (not the packaging)?

like

Would you be comfortable reaching out and asking her to credit you as illustrator in that package design work? A lot of portfolio work around was done as a team and as long as everyone is properly and clearly credited I don’t see a problem.

like

Well did she present the entire project as something she worked on, with your illustrations as a cover photo or did she directly claim the illustrations were her work? I feel like there’s a difference there.
