Graphic/Web designers, I need your help. Based on the list of designer definitions at, I would like to gather profiles of what a typical "real" day is like for your position.

I teach graphic and web design and my students often ask me what the "real" day to day responsibilities are of the different roles. What I'm trying to create are profiles, when I used to do lots of business presentations we called these "DILOS", (Day In the Life Of)- usually two or three slides which summarized someone's typical day.

Based on the list, the positions I need to get are the following:
(Solo Designer; Owner, partner, principal; Creative/ Design Director; Art Director; Senior Designer; Designer; Entry-level designer; Print production artist; Web designer).

I would be happy to send the results to people once I compile them, my email is in my profile

I'd be happy to participate, but I work at a really small company. This is vastly different than working at say, an agency. Is this something you would be interested in as well?
