ladieswhodesignThis month’s topic of discussion is CREATIVE LABELS!
We want to hear from you. Do you want to specialize, generalize or are you unsure? Do you think of yourself as an illustrator or designer? We will talk about the pros and cons of assigning yourself CREATIVE LABELS. You can ask us a question about this topic at any time by using the hashtag #asklwd on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

- camillabehroozianHmm I guess I find this most difficult when talking to people in non creative fields. When asked "what do you do?" Even a fitting title is often met with blank stares and I find myself reaching for the most pedestrian or familiar "title", OR reference a tangible good that comes from what I "do". It's tricky to use terms too blanketing because it doesn't give enough information, yet too specific a title and you're pigeon holed. I think the reality is that most creative people often have many interests and are capable of applying their skills in many ways that maybe your degree or professional title doesn't cover. But list too many skill sets and you might sound like you're bullshitting. Tricky balance.
- ladieswhodesign@camillabehroozian Really great points! It is difficult to find that balance and also to find a label that you are comfortable with because sometimes you might not consider yourself one thing over the other.

- fuzebrandingRight, @camillabehroozian? I've struggled with this. And it can be hard to commit to one label. Do you want to specialize in one aspect of your field, so clients know that you're an "expert" in that aspect? Or does that prevent you from accessing clients looking for a one stop shop? And forget all the times when we're so critical of our skills that it's tough to take ownership of a certain title, like illustrator. lol I'm still over here trying to explain to friends and family what a project manager/copywriter does for a living. 😂

- camillabehroozian@fuzebranding I hear ya! The internal self critic is yet another challenge. As well as getting the parents to understand what you do. The struggle is real.
