Designers, specifically, are often viewed as one-dimensional cogs in the creative wheels of an agency that perform a dedicated function. But how do we grow and develop as professionals?
Are we supposed to remain static in our career path, forever performing singular design tasks? Or, are there other opportunities out there for those who need to get up in the morning and create?
It's a tricky subject to tackle.
But, this week, Jessie-Lee, Marcella, and Joe dove headfirst into an honest discussion about creative leadership, upward moves, lateral transitions, and all of the big, hairy (and scary) question marks that are inherent to the discussion of growth for today's modern, professional graphic designers.
As IMPACT's content strategist, Liz does more than wrangle commas. With more than 10 years of editorial and inbound marketing experience, she's obsessed with innovating new ways of creating amazing content that's absurdly useful and effective. (She also works with in-house contributors and clients as an editor, strategist, interviewer, coach, and sometimes therapist.)
No matter which hat she's wearing, her goal is simple -- to empower organizations and thought leaders to differentiate themselves and drive measurable results through game-changing content. Throughout her career, Liz has worked with organizations across a wide range of industries -- from cyber security and health care, to government sales and insurance.
Liz lives in Annapolis, Maryland, with her husband and two dogs. She loves public radio and is also a freelance beer writer and an enthusiastic camper. Finally, she has very aggressive feelings about pineapple on pizza. (It's best not to engage her on that topic.)
