New year resolutions have been around since the 19th century but they’ve never been taken so seriously as they are in 2022!
Every year people across the world vow to give up smoking, eat less or go to the gym. More often than not, they fail.
If you are searching for a resolution that will change your life, is achievable and has proven results, you’re in the right place.
This new year, why not start a new design career?
Why Choose Graphic Design as a Career
Graphic design is a career choice that has seen constant growth over the past decade… despite a worldwide pandemic!
One of the most compelling aspects of a career in graphic design is the amount of potential work on offer. You’ll certainly never be bored. With applications across an infinite amount of industries and businesses, a designers eye will always be needed.
Due to the variety of potential work, the working schedule offers flexibility that isn’t available in other careers. Whether your are a parent needing to balance child care with work or you are simply tired of the commute, working as a graphic designer from home could be your future.
When it comes to earnings – let’s be honest, this is the important bit! – the potential is huge. With entry-level positions starting at £24,000 this is a safe career change from the start. Salaries for senior graphic designers or creative leads range from £35,000 to £55,000. A director can make over £60,000.
Earning a salary isn’t the only way to make money as a graphic designer. There is also the potential to earn money as a freelancer and offer your services online.
With these earnings on offer, why wouldn’t you want to start your new design career?
