Hi there motion peeps on the interwebs!
I am wondering about how studios handle the sharing of their work on individuals' portfolios / social media. Obviously, freelancers can have a business incentive to keep their portfolios along with their social media tidy and up-to-date (and studios may have an incentive to allow them to share work to keep freelancers coming back?). As a fulltime motion designer, I realize that I don't have a financial need—or right?—to show work as an individual, but I also feel like I would like to show what I'm working on and feel as a part of a larger community nonetheless.
There are many more facettes to this (i.e. up- and downsides for the studio, client wishes, etc.), so I'd like to just leave it there and open the discussion:
How do studios handle the publication of their work, or downtime work that has been created during company time, by their fulltime employees on the employee's private (social media) channels and all the attribution baggage that comes with it?
Thank you in advance for your thoughtful feedback. This community has been so unique in its willingness to share and I am truly grateful for that. I'm very much looking forward to hear from you!
EDIT:I love my workplace and we all care very much about each others' development. We would like to gather some diversity of approaches to this topic. So less "whether or not" in general, but more "how" and "why" specifically.
In short: Which cases do you distinguish when deciding what an employee gets to share on her personal profile? How does she get to share it? Different platforms, different rules?
