Is Graphic Design a Good Career For Me?

Some occupations can get old fast. So if you’re stuck in a dead-end job feeling the need for inspiration, let us help!

We could describe to you at length just how fulfilling and varied a career in graphic design can be. But you’ll probably still be stuck wondering if “graphic design is a good career for me?”.

Wonder no longer.

Read on to discover 5 reasons why graphic design is the perfect career for you!

You Buy Into Brands

If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing properly… right? If you’re the kind of person that spots hideous colour combinations, uncentred text and sweats the small stuff, graphic design is probably going to be the right career for you.

With branding such a serious subject for businesses at the moment, it’s no surprise brands are getting creative. Did you know for example that the chairs at KFC have the Colonel’s Western Bowtie on the back?

You Recognise Different Type(Faces)

The human brain has developed to be able to recognise patterns. That’s why you’ve probably noticed a magnitude of brands starting to use a variation of Bebas Neue within their marketing.

You’ve probably also noticed that it’s versatile due to its neutrality but can be adapted to look striking when appropriate. See, you’re great at this!

Designers can quickly tell what works and what doesn’t. So if you’re sat there cringing at the thought of Comic Sans, you’re probably set for a career in graphic design. Just don’t get us started on WordArt!

You Like Aesthetically Pleasing Things

Is your house a colour coordinated array of assortments? Is every picture frame perfectly aligned? Do you have to have everything organised? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you understand the basic principles of design.

Balance, Repetition, Contrast, Alignment and Hierarchy are the building blocks of design. It’s good to see you already have a designers eye!

You Pick Out Packaging At The Supermarket

Did you really choose that beer because it’s your favourite? Or was it really because it had a design that made it jump off the shelf? If it was the design that made you reach for the can you could have a promising future as a graphic designer ahead of you!

Product packaging is an essential skill within graphic design and has a growing interest due to the increase in environmental concerns. It’s also a plus if you know what it means to be a brand instead of just a logo.

You Think Learning Is Fun

If you keep up with current trends and enjoy the learning curve, a career in graphic design is perfect for you.
