Has anyone ever taken a role that is a level or two below? I’d like to go back to a Sr. Designer role and is fine with a pay cut. Does that make me less attractive or more attractive as candidate?

I’d like to shift over to working at branding/design studios instead of ad agencies. I have brand design experience but not on the same level. Feels like apples and oranges to me when comparing those two worlds.

It depends - is it a better client ? better agency ? different medium ? will you want to go back to AD ? I pivoted to Director from VP and articulated why. [also, I didn’t think the ego would hurt but it did.].

Yes. I’ve done it. Worked out in the long run. Do what you want and what’s right for you, not what society tells you to do.
