I have been a graphic designer for over 20 years, currently working under a Graphics Director, whose boss is the Department Manager, whose boss is the VP of Marketing.
The VP is recently hired, and unlike our past VPs, has been making comments/requests for changes on my design work. It is clear to the Graphics Director and myself that this individual has no design experience, or even a good eye for a balanced and professional layout.
So I need a tactful/diplomatic (or at least a bit more polite) way to tell someone above me in the chain-of-command that they know nothing about design and should just back off and trust me and the Graphics Director to handle design.
I'm looking for work elsewhere (Graphics Director level), but even if I do get the chance to leave this company, any advice on the situation will still help to improve my communication skills, and benefit the other designers who're at my level and below.
