In-house designers, or ”creatives”, regularly work for companies and organizations that are not in the design field. In-house design is a two-sided coin. In many cases these designers work alone without other creative staff for support. Regularly they are relied upon to develop and maintain brand identity, websites, and other web and print promotional material. This can be difficult when bosses “don’t get design”, or have a limited understanding of what it means to have a consistent message. However these jobs can have less stress and better benefits than agency or freelance positions.
This talk will explore my personal experience working as an in-house designer in multiple organizations and will provide practical methods for keeping work interesting, and resources available to allow in-house designers to continue being passionate about design.
