Having worked in design studios and as a freelance before entering the world of in-house corporate design was like day and night for me. I'd love to have an opportunity to speak with more seasoned in-house designers on how they stay fresh and relevant while having to constantly prove their worth to upper management.
There are perks and drawbacks to the in-house design career and I think it's niche enough it warrants some good roundtable discussions, lectures, etc.
This Meetup group focuses intentionally on building an informal, friendly, and supportive community that helps Atlanta-area designers share, develop, and prosper. Our members are primarily graphic designers across all career stages, skill levels, and media. Building on what already exists in the market through other groups and associations, our programming will be a mix of events and social experiences that challenge, encourage, and inspire members to create their best work ever.
Allied professions, vendors, and prospective employers are always welcome to participate in our events and online conversations but please contact the Organizer before posting solicitations to the Message Board.
