Designers and Art directors are much different positions in the ad world than design world. If it’s a design team that you are working with it’s likely more money and more influence over design, not campaign concept

Lead Designer and Art Director are two completely different things. Might want to clarify that and the duties that come along with it first. A Lead Designer sometimes makes more than an AD. Are you then switching teams? They may only do a promote, are you definitely getting a raise?

IBM IX 1- The CD ‘promoted’ me to lead Designer 2 years ago without a raise because I told them I would leave without a promotion. AD1- It’s a Design team. AD TA 1- I will absolutely clarify the duties first. Same team. I work on a Marketing & Design team. Definitely getting a raise.

Deff ask for that. Have it in writing and see what the % is. Internal promotions are sometimes only a certain % so make sure you’re prepared going in with all your duties over the 6 years. Goodluck :)

Bought a 4Runner 5 years ago for 30k and planned on driving it for the rest of my life. I have an offer for a private sale for 28k, which is incredible in my eyes. 5 years and 80k miles later only losing 2k in depreciation? But then I would have to buy another 4Runner, and this time a TRD pro, but those are running on 20k over MSRP. Used isn’t any better.
