In-Depth Look At The Graphic Design Career [Infographic]

In-Depth Look At The Graphic Design Career [Infographic] | graphiccc design | Scoop.it

Thinking about a graphic design career? Have a look at this infographic before you make up your mind. There is more to it than what you might think.


No matter where you go on the Internet, you will see something that a graphic designer has put together. You just can’t get around it. There are more graphic designers than ever before, and the competition is fierce. Still there are more and more people who want to try out this highly creative career to see what it has to offer. There is a mystery surrounding it that I think people like. The graphic design career might seem like a laid back choice, but nothing could be farther from the truth. If your creativity is not up to par, each and every day you will find yourself under more pressure and stress than you could ever imagine. On top of that, you can be sure that all your work will be creatively criticized every step of the way.


In order to shed some light on the graphic design career, I thought it was about time to look into all of the aspects of it, at least from a career perspective and what it has to offer if you want to make a living from it. To start, there is only one thing you will be dependent on, and that is your creativity. Without it, you will never see your predicted success and your paycheck will be minimal if even that. You have to work for your money and reputation for a long time before you have perfected your skills to the point where they will keep you creative no matter what is thrown on your desk.


By looking at an infographic called Graphic Design By Numbers (by Logo Snap), we get to peek into the bigger picture of what it means to take on a graphic design career. The first thing you should notice is that on average a graphic design career will cough up around $43,500 per year in salary. But, that is after you have gained the necessary skills to score a real job in this industry. Many people struggle for years as freelancers in order to mount up the necessary skills and portfolio to even get a shot at a graphic design career in a well paid position. But don’t let that demotivate you one single bit.

Motion graphics are back… and HOT!

Motion graphics are back… and HOT! | graphiccc design | Scoop.it

If you’re a fan of the show Mad Men or have seen the opening, then you’ve seen a motion graphic.


Motion graphics were all the rage in the 1960s (hence the look for the Mad Men series set in the advertising field of the 1960s) and were popular in movies, TV show openings and commercials.


You’ve seen plenty of them, now that you’ve put the graphic with the term. They’re once again on TV, commercials, movies, web sites and any other visual medium.


Is it that they are retro? Do they bring back a feeling of simpler days? Are they just visually pleasing and that’s why they have been discovered again? Some people will say that they never went away and that’s true but they are hot again and a specialized talent is needed to create them.


If you’ve wondered how it’s done and how you can get involved in creating these projects, here are examples and hints from some experts in the field.
