Graphic Design Career

Imagine combining your love of creativity with the technical power of computers. You can do this if you pursue a graphic design career.

The Future in Graphic Design Careers

Graphic designers are the creative minds behind almost everything you see. While designers have been around for decades, graphic design has come a long way since the days of pencil and paper. Graphic designers now use their computers to achieve all the effects you see on your computer or television screen. Just a few examples of graphic design areas are:
  • Television or movie animation
  • Magazine and brochure production
  • Computer graphics
  • Video games
  • Product packaging
Graphic designers may work independently as freelancers or private contractors, or they may work as part of team with other graphic designers. More experienced designers might supervise a team of graphic designers.

What Training Could Lead to a Graphic Design Career?

Graphic design is a competitive field, so if you want a graphic design career, you need to follow the right path. For most jobs, you need a bachelor's degree in graphic design, not a two- or three-year associate's degree or certificate. While these don't rule you out from graphic design career, they are more technical in nature and are more likely to lead to a career as a graphic design assistant.

On the other hand, if you have a degree in a related field, such as fine arts and you want to pursue a graphic design career, you may find that a technical certificate or associate's degree is all you need to round out your knowledge.

While the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 13 percent growth for graphic designers in coming years, stiff competition is also expected. Designers with a professional portfolio and a commitment to keeping up with the field should have the best job opportunities.
