What is a graphic designer?
Are you looking for a creative career in visual design that involves collaborating with other creatives or directly with clients? You may want to consider a career as a graphic designer!
Graphic designers are visual communicators who create concepts by hand or with the help of specialized graphic design software. They communicate ideas to inspire, inform, or engage consumers through physical and virtual art forms that contain images, words, or graphics. Through constant communication with clients, clients and other designers, they ensure that their designs accurately convey the desired message and disclose information effectively.
What does a graphic designer do?
Graphic designers combine art and technology to communicate ideas and use different design elements to create artistic or decorative effects. You develop the overall layout and production design for advertisements, brochures, magazines, and company reports. This usually begins by creating rough illustrations of design ideas, either through hand sketches or using a computer program.
The ultimate goal of graphic designers is to make the company that employs them recognizable and visible. Using text, images and various media, they convey a certain idea or identity that can be used in advertising and promotion. Media can include fonts, sizes, shapes, colors, print designs, photography, animation, logos, and billboards.
Graphic designers often collaborate on projects with other graphic designers, digital marketers, multimedia animators, programmers, art directors, and web designers. When using text in a layout, they work closely with the copywriter to write the words and decide whether to place the words in headings, paragraphs, lists, or tables.
Graphic Designer responsibilities include:
Meet with client or art director to define project scope
Inform clients about strategies to reach specific audiences
Define the message you want to convey from the design
Create an image that identifies a product or conveys a message
Develop visual or audio graphics and images for product illustrations, logos and websites
Create designs by hand or using a computer software package
Choose colors, images, text styles and layouts
Present designs to clients or art director
Include customer recommended changes in final design
Review design errors before printing or publishing
