Where to Start

Graphic design has numerous areas and most designers pick an area to specialise in; however, they may do work in other areas, but their focus will be on a single type of design. For example, multimedia or video, advertising, print, animation, and web design. All of these areas need a graphic designer. Finding the area that best suits your interests and your talents can go a long way to ensuring you have a successful start to your career.

Education

Becoming a professional graphic designer generally requires taking classes in graphic design. Our graphic design courses are designed to teach you the software and how to create designs that will meet your client’s needs. Courses also provide you with tangible on paper proof of your skills. While your actual knowledge and skill in the field will be what sells the position, many jobs require a formal education. You will need to know things such as CSS, HTML, and JavaScript. Business and marketing courses can provide a wealth of information as well as basic writing, eCommerce, and design courses. Web developers bring together the various aspects of a web design from the graphic artists to the copywriters. Knowing the basics of these jobs helps a web developer navigate easily and helps them to know what is trending across the board.

Equipment & Software

Excellent software and equipment can make your job as a graphic designer that much easier. You will need a good computer and something that can handle the necessary requirements for high-level graphic and video work. You will also need the right pieces of software: this includes applications such as Adobe’s Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop, which are standards in the Graphic Design Industry.

Portfolios

A portfolio can make or break you when it comes to getting a role as a graphic designer. Even if you do not have the complete educational background necessary for a role as a designer, if your portfolio is exceptional, most employers will consider work experience as a replacement for formal education. You want to make sure only the best pieces you have go into your portfolio, it showcases your talent, abilities, and your creativity.

Get Involved

One of the fastest ways to learn, grow and keep yourself up-to-date on all the latest developments in the design community is to simply join it. Get involved, put your work out there, hear what other designers have to say, talk to them, and ask questions. The more feedback you get, the better your work will become. It also helps you to network if you have decided to freelance.

Own It

Becoming a graphic designer is more than just education, tools, equipment, and focus; it is also about finding your artistic style and growing as a designer. No matter what genre of graphic design you pick, own it by throwing in your own loves. If you love clean lines and bold colours, then whether you are in multimedia or print design, focus on this. If you like complex and intricate designs, bring that in to your work. The best part of being a design is doing what you truly love.
