As a jr level graphic designer who has been at a company for a year and a half, when should the designer start getting invited to client meetings?

Probably pretty soon. An idea to be proactive about it is to tell your senior designer that you’d like to start presenting to clients for the experience and that you’d like to practice by presenting to them. They can give you pointers and will also be more comfortable giving you the chance to present to clients. It’s different for ADs and CWs because we usually present to our CDs as juniors and they can get a feel for our presentation skills and help us learn. Unfortunately designers don’t get as much of a chance from senior designers

I think it depends how many people are above you. I’ve been the only copywriter on projects but still not been invited to meetings. Sometimes they don’t want the real team there so the client doesn’t realize how many people they’re paying for. That said, it’s experience you should get! Ask your CD and say you want to learn. They should be fostering your presentation skills

Designers are rarely invited to client meetings sadly. Try talking to your bosses and see how you can move forward with that
