This is what I'm afraid of!

This is what I'm afraid of! - 10/15/02 07:21 AM

<br><br>I'm in my late twenties now. I'm working as an art director. I was wondering how long can someone be an art director working for agencies. I never see old art directors. I will never be hired once I'm 40 or so. Agencies need fresh blood always. I understand, they need people who understand and live the new and the young.<br><br>So my choices are either I make it a creative director or start my own design firm. Or shall I start looking for a new profession? What do you think?<br><br>http://raszl.net

Steveg is over 40 and got a job a few weeks ago as a director.<br>So what they are saying is that there is no magical limit to age in the graphic field.<br><br>
