Unless it was discussed upon hiring or you've brought in a massive new account, probably. Give it another 6 months. Start tooting your own horn and getting feedback to ensure you're actually where you need to be to get that raise.

Aside from the fact that you want to make more money (welcome to the club), what have you accomplished that warrants a raise? I'm not saying that you don't have accomplishments that warrant one, but most people have barely figured out how to do timesheets at 6 months. Your first year in this business is pretty much a test run to see if you can being together your work ethic, curiosity, talent and social skills to be able to produce a product that your agency can sell. Juniors are expected to go from knowing pretty much zilch on day one, to showing that they can take a brief and contribute something acceptable to a client somewhere around the 12-24 month mark. At that point, the agency decides to invest in you and promote you, along with a raise. If you are killing it as a Junior, good things can happen around the 12 month mark. The average Junior to Mid promotion at my agency is usually around 18-24. Past that, something's probably off. You're an unknown during that first year-also known as a "calculated risk". Which is why you're not paid much. Once you've proven yourself, you're no longer a risk-you're an asset. And it usually takes longer than 6 months to establish a pattern worth investing more money in.
