- When you go looking for a design job,
the first decision you should make
isn't which company is the most impressive
or who has the best website,
it's what kind of situation
you want to end up working in.

No matter what type of design you do,
there are three main job
types for a designer;

agency, in house or freelance.
In this video we're gonna discuss
the differences between
them and try to help you

figure out which one might suit you best.
(upbeat music)
When I was studying design at university,
most of the talk around our future careers
was centered around working
in the agency or a studio.

Those types of design jobs
were seen as the way to be successful.
Once I was out in the real
world of design though,

I realized that they were
many different options for me

to have a successful design career.
So that's why I wanted to make this video,
to let you know about
your different options

and try and help you figure
out what would be best for you.

This video is the start of a series
that I'm making about design careers,
so we will be digging deeper
into each one of these options

in future videos, but for now,
I just wanna give you an overview
and some of the pros and cons.
(gentle music)
Agencies, or studios, are companies
that create design work for clients.
Generally speaking, an agency
will be a larger company

and a studio will be smaller,
but essentially the job
concept is the same.

You'll be working with a
team to answer client briefs.

An agency might not necessarily be
a design agency, specifically.
It could be advertising, social media,
branding, marketing, but all those things
need design and all
those agencies will need

designers to help provide the service
that their client needs.
Working at an agency, you can expect
to be working with multiple
clients on multiple projects,

so you definitely need to
enjoy taking on new challenges.

The cool thing about
working for a larger agency,

in particular, is that you might get to
work on some pretty big budget projects,
which will be pretty fun, but remember
you won't be working on them by yourself,
you will be part of the team
and you will likely
have to work your way up

and sometimes that can be quite a climb.
That likely won't be the
case with smaller agencies

or studios, but like with everything,
it depends on what you
want out of your career.

So if you choose the agency route
you also need to decide if you want to
go for the big famous corporate
or something smaller and more boutique.
(gentle music)
If you're in house, you're a
designer based at a company,

working on their brand and projects.
Over the years, as the
tech industry has boomed

and more of an importance
has been placed on design,

in house roles have definitely
exploded in popularity.

Designers who work at Facebook,
Twitter, Google they're
all in house designers.

Just like with agency though,
there are in house roles

at smaller companies,
like mine for example.

I'm the marketing designer at ConvertKit
and we're a team made
up of only 28 people.

I should note that it's
not just tech companies

where you can be an in house designer.
Other companies like, for example;
colleges, magazines, retailers,
they all hire in house designers too,
in many different design specializations.
When you're in house designing,
you get to know the brand and the audience
you design for really deeply and you also
have the opportunity to learn
from things like user research

and improve on your designs over time.
Of course there will be new
challenges coming your way,

with new types of projects you work on,
because you won't just be
redesigning the same thing

over and over again.
But there definitely needs
to be a lot of consistency

and so if you're someone who enjoys
working with new styles a lot of the time,
perhaps you might get bored
working for the same brand.

(upbeat music)
Freelance designers kind of operate
as their own little studios.
They take on clients and they
create design work for them.

Generally speaking, these
clients and projects

will be smaller than
an agency would take on

and also, unlike an agency,
you won't be working in a
team to answer the briefs.

Instead, you will be in charge
of answering them yourself.

To be a freelancer, you need to
learn to be good at
business, because essentially

you're running your own small business,
whether you think of it that way or not.
You'll also need to be
really self motivated,

because you'll be your own boss
and you'll need to find
the clients yourself too.

So while you get a lot of
freedom and flexibility

being a freelancer, you also have
all of the pressures of
running your own business.

From listening to the descriptions
of those different job types,
is there one that appeals to you most?
Let me know about it down
below, in the comments.

As I mentioned, I will be making specific,
in depth videos on each of these topics
and I'll be bringing on an expert
who works in each different
type of situation,

to tell us more about what it's like
and also share advice on how
to be successful in each.

So stay tuned for those
videos later on in the series.

Give this video here a
thumbs up if you enjoyed it

or found it useful and if
you'd like to be notified

when new videos, in this
design career series,

goes live then you can
sign up to my email list.

It's at charlimarie.com/designjobs.
And I've also left a
link in the description,

if you'd rather click it,
rather than type it in.

All right.
Thanks for watching and I'll
see you in the next one.
