Well title is more about ego and maybe money is more important but you shouldn’t always think of the money right now but the money you will be making in 5 years 10 years when you retire. The title is only important if you can use that to get better pay raises or means you can have a greater upward career path. If not then its not important and if the company you are working for is greater then I would take lesser title and work on getting the title at the other company and have more money and other benefits

A recruiter reached out to me last year about an open ‘CD’ position with a cosmetic dental company. One person creative team… mostly posting on Facebook and creating digital POP. Salary was shockingly high for the actual duties. If it was remote I would have tried to as a side job.

Generally agree, but a deflated title can make it more difficult to stay on the right salary trajectory as you move between companies. Or even within the same company - if you come in as the highest paid CD, you might not see a raise for as many years as it takes to get promoted.

But if you come in high enough you’re already offsetting 🤪

Money is better! But as creatives, we want to produce great work. Having the title move things forward. No one listens to a designer, and everyone reacts to a creative director. Especially at Apple! Don’t get me started on gender and race.
