Before I became a graphic designer, I was a photographer. Photography is where I started. After that, I started building my own graphics for photo composites and before you know it full blown animation and video. This career is wild. Here’s a recent shot I did at #EPFW

New at a job. During interview, I was clear on my desire to move from doing work representing individuals to businesses. I took the job even though there was a chance to work on cases representing individuals. I was hoping it would be an opportunity to gain experience on doing work for businesses. I suspect that my employer is trying to pigeonhole me based on comments and actions. How do I avoid this? I want to have some control of my career. I left my job because I was done w/representing ppl.

Hey product designers! How do you go about gathering technical constraints before starting design work. I find it can be tough when you get into a design review and something isn’t feasible due to some uncovered unknown-known, as they say. Would love to know your techniques.

Just got an offer for 75k for a Senior Visual Designer. This will be largely web interface design, as well as some branding and potentially some Elementor dev work. The range I asked was 70-90k but it seems the base rate for a role like this is 80k. Do I counter (80 or 85k) or happily accept? It will be a 20k pay raise from where I am coming from :)

Salary research:
Hey fellow designers, I recently saw a tweet that the new hourly rate for designers in US is $200-250hr(screenshot). And more people seem to confirm that:
https://twitter.com/francois_bach/status/1399063307936354309?s=21

I think the lack of awareness of how much our peer designers make causes huge gap differences in what we’re paid.

I work full time for a sorta established tech startup in NYC with 100+ employees.
As a sr product designer I made $85k/year (no other monetary bonus)

In my new role I make $127k/year (about $67/hr). Hbu?
