We are in an industry that has undergone significantly variable shifts. Career challenges and uncertainty for designers is an ongoing concern and daily reality.
The journey from emerging and junior through to mid-weight and senior level carries many checkpoints. For some, these are achieved smoothly, pacing through with determination, focus, courage and strong work ethics. For others, who have the same qualities, navigating the journey may be harder to overcome, which can impede progress, cause frustration or even a change in career.
