I am a Graphic Designer in a Supermarket Enterprise company based in Sarawak.

I have 15 years working experience and I served in this company for 3 years.

My sharing:

I have been working in designing field for 15 years long. Unfortunately the pandemic strike 2 years ago it's making me tough to survive. Currently working as graphic designer in grocery retails based in Sarawak. Displaying, banner design, logo design, all included. My salary is getting less and less. There's no hope here. I am no longer young, i did think of quitting design field and switch to other industry. If you want to involve yourself in designing field, go west...or else do others, humans

I am a Graphic Designer in a DirectD Retail & Wholesale company based in Selangor.

I have 2 years working experience and I served in this company for 2 years.

My sharing:

i need a proper job, I don't feel like i got treated well here, for portfolio yes its good because you can build up so many Brand name banner for sales, for salary? not grateful at all because I do so many design alone for other platform like 3 shopee mall , 2 lazada mall and others app/website etc (not just DirectD btw) I just don't get it, I thought working a bigger company will do great for me but in reality, they just treat u like you're not important for sales, for now I'm trying to find a better job for me to expand my creativity
