You need to tell them to prioritize and push back. Ask them if they want a portfolio full of banners or TV spots?

This industry isn’t normal.

No of course it's not normal. But it happens often.

Yes, unfortunately. Agencies make ADs do design and production work as well as concepting.

Exporting banners for 2 weeks? What the.

What does vacation time look like outside of the United States? (Pls share where you live) When I was young, my family lived abroad and we were able to go on long vacations - sometimes as long as 6 weeks. My dad was an engineering consultant and we were by no means loaded with cash. It seemed to me that going on vacation for a long period of time was the norm in places like South America and Europe. Is this still true? I’d love to be able to do the same kind of things for my own kids one day.

Or do you guys think getting MBB is def worth giving up my sponsorship
