Agency vs Startup: From a Young Designer
Leanne Kawahigashi

Hi Leanne. I find your article, while being an easy and amusing read, a little too black and white, this as opposed to that. As one who was thrust into a multinational agency right after dropping out, one who was procured by other agencies up the corporate ladder, and one who is currently running his own start up after partnering with others’ start ups, I’d have to say there are no cookie-cutter patterns in either. The only real distinction that I have noticed is that larger agencies will have a deeper pool in terms of wisdom (you’re practically standing on the shoulders of giants), clout (as opposed to network), and pockets. Other than those, the difference lies in your outlook. =)

Like what you read? Give Ernie Mauricio a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
