Im on a high profile project that would be good for my portfolio but I basically have nothing to do and left out of the whole thing. Should I just leave it and be more productive elsewhere? I feel bad looking like a freeloader when my name ends up in it and I haven’t done anything for it

If you haven’t done anything, can’t claim credit it for. You could make sure you’re noticed and get work passed off to you though.

Are you assisting a more senior team? Or is the work just not art heavy? If it’s the former I generally leave it off my book if they handled most of the hard decisions/labour.

It sounds like you’re not really on a high profile project.

My Q is do I engage (reply-all) and set the record straight or take the high road?
