“I interned for an agency that used my work in a client pitch that later became part of a huge global campaign. I didn’t get a design credit or see a single penny. And I didn’t speak up at the time because I needed a recommendation from my supervisor for my next job.”
“I freelanced for a studio that kept asking me to come in earlier and stay later as we approached a big deadline. I stayed as long as I could, but I have a child and have to come home from time to time to feed it, be a mom, have a life. One night I left the office at 7 p.m. The company replaced me with a childless designer the next week.”
