Graphic Designer Reviews

What is it like working as a Graphic Designer?
Graphic Designer in Cape Town:
Pros: Clients design work and environment are all ideal. The type of work I do is very client based and always celebrates a beautiful occasion. Everyday is something different and the design trends are constantly changing. I appreciate and value that I can use a variety of print and production processes such as hot foil, letter pressing and laser cutting.
Cons: Poor time management within our office environment. Design work is unequally weighted which makes for a stressful environment, No employer/employee heirachy.
