I would like professional who has experience worked as an in house Graphic Designer and share your thoughts with me.
There is some culture in my company and I am not sure if it is norm in other companies.
I am working as an in house graphic designer and it's under marketing team.
There is only 2 graphic designers in the print area. We outsource our main launch model photos, product photos to other small agency.
things I am worry
- We don't have art director. Marketing director is our art director. (I think it's not too bad)
The lead designer always show lots of options for marketing teammates to judge and to choose from. I have notice how the marketing team has become controlling on design outcome.
The lead designer showing options to marketing team for example "the difference between 60% opacity or 68% opacity" "the difference between font size 12.75 and 12.5 " Very detail design decision.
The lead designer will make things perfect even though there is other project is due. What I have learned from other company is that, you do your best by how much time you have in a project. However, the lead designer will spend so much time to create her prefect design. I am not like that. If there is deadline, and I would like to finis on time rather than extend the timeline.
Are all this healthy for a designer?
How much do you show to your team is enough? What is your experience as in house graphic designer? The environment I am in, is it norm?
Please give me some answers,
Thank you for the help!
