Graphic Designers fuse creativity and technology to create visually engaging graphics that communicate a message.
The demand for well designed graphics - and skilled graphic designers - is at an all time high. From web design and multimedia advertising campaigns, to print publishing and package design, clients expect modern branding initiatives to increase sales and elevate their status. Self-employment opportunities are abundant for talented designers with entrepreneurial spirit. Contributing to graphic designer job growth is the omnipresent need for innovative web and multimedia designs, now that almost every business has a website and social media presence requiring eye-catching graphics.
A graphic designer makes an average of $57,000 per year.
