    Hi Raffaello,

    I am a 25yo employee designer in a marketing agency in Milan.

    Unfortunately, company I am working with from about 4 years doesn't want to invest in design. That's one of the main reason why I am thinking to leave it definitively. I work here on adv campaign and social media channels, I - try - to design UIs of websites and apps but with no methods or design approaches (from both my side, 'cause I am still young in this field with few competences, and their sides, 'cause they prefer to hire just jr designers). No way to meet clients at all, no "creative" project. Just adapt what other external people/companies did on several formats.

    My compensation, as apprentice, is about 20k/year. As Cirox said before, lower respect other countries and companies with design-center philosophy and mind.

      Ciao Riccardo, Thanks for your reply.

      That's a very unfortunate situation, indeed. I hope there are some good alternatives to work as a UI Designer in Milan, which, if I've heard well, is one of the best city economies in Italy.

      Well, man, I wish you well. Ciao e grazie!
