Sounds like you’re suffering from PTPSD. Help is available. I’ll send you photoshop files with layers grouped and appropriately named. No “Layer 1” in these docs. Just looking through these well organized and efficient files is guaranteed to calm a mind suffering from Post Traumatic Photoshop Stress Disorder.

Also available in InDesign.

I don’t know how many times I’ve requested vector logos from clients and received a jpg placed inside an illustrator file back. Yah, that’ll do it 👌🏻

I have literally been hired to reproduce logos as vector files because at some point the company lost or broke the files they had.

Well I’ve seen posts on twitter encouraging (freelance) designers to flatten their PSDs when working files are requested, usually because the client is trying to skip out on paying for additional rounds of revisions. Not saying this is your case or even what you described which sound pretty janky. But I agree with that mindset in certain instances. So, they may actually be very professional and know how to protect their value?

Haha, yeah i feel you on that one then. Have gotten all sort of janky assets from clients.

I have recruiters from mid-level firms reaching out to me pretty regularly for tax manager roles, but I honestly don’t feel like I am ready to be a manager. I don’t want to be in a situation where I am unable to deliver. So my question is what does it take to be a tax manager at a mid-level firm? What experience and temperament do you need? Is it normal to not feel ready? I’ve worked 2.5 yr at a regional firm, made it to senior, now been in industry for almost 2.5 yr as a tax analyst.
