    If you are talking about a mid/senior level designer, you have all the skill sets required but that doesn't mean you should do everything and burn yourself out. Focus on things you are good at and execute them well.

    You have targets as a Design team to achieve and hogging every task because you are a Unicorn/Full Stack designer diminishes your quality of work and in return you meet your targets with a lot of struggles and unpolished work.

      Why would you burn yourself out, unless you're working more? I'm probably a full-stack designer but I work 8 hours a day. Just because I have a broader skill set doesn't mean I work more.

        What's your day to day like? What is the size of your startup? How big is your Design team? What kind of targets do you have as a whole? What is your product and how many verticals does your team own?

          I go from task to task, and they all require different skill sets. Sometimes I spend a few hours on our print material, and then I dive into CSS animations for the rest of the day. It varies. Has been the same whether I'm at a three-man startup or a 20+ employee company, etc.

          But again, I don't understand why you believe a full-stack designer means you are working more than a specialised designer? You said full-stack means you get paid as one person to do a four-person job...but that insinuates you think a full-stack designer works four times more for the same pay.
