Why do many artistically talented people end up as Graphic Designers instead of artists and was it a good career choice for them? We spoke to the design team at Artifact Advertising to get some entertaining insights about their graphic design careers…
If you are a struggling artist, but with promising skills, shop around for price. Figure out the industry ceiling for pricing. Figure out as well the minimum price that professional graphic designers are willing to get paid for. If you are sure certain that by quoting the minimum price you could get a good amount of steady work throughout the months, then stick with the minimum price.
If you are planning to get some formal course or trying to self study, you will always need to start with the basics too. So what are the basic elements of graphic design is my passion meme lets us start with color. Color is very important in any design you are planning to make. It can set out the overall mood of the design you are making. It is also important that you are able to master your colors and research about what emotions they represent. For instance, the color blue represents calmness and peace.
Does the style of their work meet my taste criteria? Do they have experienced with my product or service? Do I think I’ll enjoy working with them? (This may not seem as important until you’re in the center of a project. Then it will be crucial.) Will they give me references? Are the references pleased with the effort they received?
The thing with advertising is that you are trying to sell something. You need some way, some medium in which to convey what it is you are selling. It may be business cards with your company’s name printed on them. It might be signs advertising your business.
Keep it simple in the combination of colors, message and images. Too complex and your door hanger goes in the trash can. You have about 3 seconds during the first glance to get their attention so they read the rest of your message.
Though there is no pre-defined mechanism available to judge the capabilities of a designer, but yes by following these certain steps you can advantage yourself in this fast paced competitive world, where you don’t have enough chances to make errors and then correct them.
