Designers

Has anyone here switched from an agency art Director role into a brand design role (packaging, etc.) if so, how did you do it?

I feel like that’s all I do as an AD. Just tons of layout work. And most of it was originally created by some shitty SrAD or CD without good design sensibilities. I’d love to find somewhere I could do some original brand design work while also doing campaign work.

Just told my CD that I was tired of being an AD and wanted to focus on design. Now any time I get a project that requires a decent amount of concepting/campaign work I ask for another AD to be added to the project so I can focus on design. It’s not perfect but it’s a step in the right direction.

After seeing a bunch of the posts on here about some of the exit opportunities people here have posted, I started applying a couple months ago. I just got an offer that's a little under 3x my current comp... And I'm totally speechless. Thank you to everyone here for motivating me to look for that next opportunity!!!

Moved here for an opportunity. The "agency" focus is on sports and the first round of layoffs happened this past week. I dont plan to stay to see myself and my department laid off. Wondering where should I go next, Ive got plenty of experience and I'm more than happy to send my book if needed. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Do you know of anyone who has changed to MBB, OW, ADL,... After a year of consulting experience in a B4? Is this a possible change or better to try it post MBA? Is an engineering background with one year of B4 experience valuable to MBB, OW and other strategic firms? In B4 doing data analytics work.
