Designers

What are the key differences between junior and mid level roles in terms of job responsibilities, design knowledge, project oversight, etc?

In my experience, as a Junior I was given an existing system and had to put it to use. So designed a deck based on a template, or created assets using predetermined elements. Usually my boss would have to check everything before I would send it to a producer. As a Mid-Level I create the actual systems. So I design the templates, determine the fonts and icons and photography. I also speak to the clients directly more and am expected to be able to present my work. So my CD is there to give me feedback to make my designs better. But shouldn’t have to micromanage design basics or QC small asks.

This tracks very accurately. Mid level is much more aware of why they don’t yet have an answer for.

As a junior you’ll be given a lot of grunt work - cleaning up decks, cropping photos, pulling swipe - a lot of production kind of work. The more senior you get, the more you’ll be utilized as a critical thinker.

Talk to your manager. Most teams with have a career progression deck with roles, responsibilities, and key learnings at each level. Every shop is different. To me a mod is ready to work on a project. Junior designers are in grad school and it’s about finding small tasks to help teach you how things are made in your office and team.

Have been working with a few McKinsey consultants lately and I’m really disappointed to see how mediocre they are. Also astonished at the subpar quality of their work products. I’m sure most of McK is not like that, but this was an eye opener.
