    I'm a Senior Designer. At least that's one of my roles.

    It just sort of happened after like, a decade doing this stuff. But it's just a title. Titles are not a true indicator of your skills or performance, you should focus on those things and titles sort of just flow from it.

      and titles sort of just flow from it.

      Not always, if you want the title (and you should) then you do need to start asking for it in most cases. This is the case with most things in your career really, always be asking for more money always be asking for what you need to do to move up the ladder then doing it.

      Titles do matter, why do I say that? Because almost always someone unfamiliar with what you do on a day to day basis will be deciding how much to pay you based on what your title is.
