Had a meeting today with the studio manager and lets just say that we were completely on the wrong page. I talked about adding more care and quality to the work we produce and all I got in response was that they are not interested in winning awards and that deadlines are to tight for that kind of thing...
I don't understand how they misinterpreted adding care and thought for awards? So I'm out! They have absolutely no regard for the quality of the work they produce!

Scotty, Camor, Timbug, Cheli, and everyone else who has taken the time to add their 2 cents, I can't say how much it is appreciated!
So I'm glad you found my threads name funny, I'm also glad you guys all got it :P
So the update is, that it's now week 2 of my never ending struggle and there has been no progress made and now I have a new question!
So I was hired a designer, (print) now I would say that I am doing very little print ... my day to day is digital and front end. Now my question is if I'm hired as a designer but I'm also doing Front end should I be getting paid more?
Overall I feel like I should go...

Hey Cheli, TheUnderdog and Jamesb,
Thanks for your insight and discussion. I'm not usually one to give up, so all your advice really has added a bit more motivation to keep at it! (for a little while longer anyway)
It's also been an important lesson about how important it is to find the right fit when working in a studio environment. Up until now it never really uncured to me how important it is to work awesome people that share your enthusiasm for the job!

Sorry about the lack of detail in my original post but I was trying very hard to no write an essay.
It's a design studio with no creative directer but a senior designer who seems to be talking on that role. I've worked with plenty of other designers, creative directors and creatives in general but never before have I felt this way...
An example of that I mean is vector stock such as: http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-86924827/stock-photo-brain-blue-bokeh-abstract-light-background-bitmap-copy-my-vector-id.html?src=pp-same_artist-87511279-dnFGvDla7BM9VZOQc3ymuQ-7
Stock imagery like that, the studio recently used as a cover for an annual report. Now I don't want to sound cocky but when my work gets knocked back for stock imagery that looks like that it stings a little.

@CZ Sounds like you've given it a good go to make it work. Life's too short, be happy and move on with the experience under your belt.
::Sounds like you've been talking to the hand.::
This is a phrase that doesn't get used nearly enough.
