Graphic Design
What is a Graphic Designer?
A person who assembles images, typography, or uses motion graphics to create a design piece for publishing, prints, or electronic media such as brochures and advertising.
The main goal of a graphic designer is to convey a message that causes the viewer to take action. Designers work with painted, drawn, photographed or digital images, they create, choose and organize these elements to communicate ideas/messages.
Why I chose graphic design?
I've always known that my career path would involve art. After taking various art classes I realized that I have a passion and interest in graphic design. I love working with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Graphic Design would be a job that I would love to have.
A good designer should have at least a BFA (Bachelors of Fine Art's) in a Graphic Design program
Must have flexibility, customer-focus, creativity, acute vision, ability to handle rejection and commitment to their work.
Good business and sales skills
Great portfolio to showcase their work
Experience ( Photoshop, illustrator, work with clients).
What I learned..
Graphic Designers are always busy with phone calls, meetings, emails, billings and organizing their work/schedule.
It's important to find a great job but to also make sure that the location is great.
A starting salary will be around $48,000 to $80,000 annually (depending on experience).
