If you ever wondered what it’s like to be a graphic designer this infographic is a great overview of a day in the life of a graphic designer. I’ve been working as a graphic designer for more than 10 years now and even though there are endless meetings, client revisions, committee-mandated direction, long hours and often little recognition I still love it.
Is the life of a Graphic Designer right for you?
You become a graphic designer because you want to create meaningful designs that communicate on a visual, intellectual and emotional level. This is a job that can bring you great joy by being creative and having someone pay you to do it. The reality of that dream is that it often comes with the heavy price on the creative soul. Being a graphic designer can be a very rewarding career, allowing you to flex your creative muscles and allowing you to express yourself in a way that most can’t. It’s not all about design, client management and other organizational skills are important elements of a successful graphic designer as well. [Source]
