I don't believe making immediate changes are necessary. I have to see how things run and operate and how the team works then I can suggest possible avenues of change that would benefit the brand and excite the consumer.
2.
I would make sure my co-workers do their work seriously such as not turning in lazy designs when I know they have more potential than that.

Sharing creative vision with Junior designers to excite them about a project has always been a highlight of being a Senior Designer. Taking responsibility and leadership feels like a natural next step in my career in the fashion industry.

When concerns with a client arise I find it is best to reach out in person / verbally and discuss the issues and possible resolutions. Being a good listener is sometimes the rest way to solve a problem.

A client didn't like our design and I have no choice but to abide by their requests. Since our views were different, rather than fighting against them, I adapt to the situation and view things from their point of view. I added a few suggestions that may improve their design and in the end we were able to work smoothly.
