How much less than 1 year? You might hit 1 year by the time you get through the whole job hunting process. If you're worried more about perception during the interviews when they ask why you're looking for a change you can say something to the effect of "I am looking for a role that is more defined than my current position and holds less departmental overlap in ownership"

I’ve applied to hundreds of graphic design roles at this point with only 1 interview, which ended in a bust. I mainly specialize in logo design and digital branding assets. My most recent experience was a contract remote role with Franklin Covey as a Graphic Designer + Digital Course Builder, where we focused on photo manipulation and adding digital illustrations to the course we were helping build. Any recommendations on which job boards I should be looking through for a better lead?
