Panel Discussion

Myths Busted: Being a designer for corporate vs consultancy vs freelance

As designers, we have a wider array of ways of working to pick from. Do you want to work in a structured, solid corporate company with one product? Or maybe consultancy? You may think that a manager is not for you, that you should be your own boss. We bring together four designer women with experience in all these structures. They all agree that there are so many misconceptions about these ways of working about managers, work hours, locations, pay, skills required, even dress codes... We will talk about these myths and bust them all together to get down to the real questions when we are looking for the work that we are proud of.
