Step Three: Be Observant The best advice to give a prospective graphic designer is to absolutely immerse yourself in the world of graphic design. Don’t just focus on design trends you like — the ones you don’t like can be equally important! Check out the differences between advertisements in newspapers, magazines, web sites, and every other form of media. Another way to make sure you’re up on what’s hot is to join design forums (like ArtBistro!). Joining online communities is a great way to stay up on the latest trends and see what your peers are working on. It’s also a great place to network. Being observant doesn’t just pertain to consuming media, either. A key skill any graphic designer needs is the ability to listen to your client and translate their vision into the dynamic artistic message they’re looking to convey. This seems to speak for it self. Step Four: Develop Your Style The idea of Step Three isn’t to become a graphic designer who can copy several styles, it’s to gain enough knowledge to be able to create your own style, which is vital in the world of graphic design. However, the true way to develop your own unique style is to practice, practice, practice. The best possible scenario is to create high quality design work that is immediately recognizable as your own, and the only way to do that is to constantly hone your craft. Usually, finding a distinct artistic voice is a gradual process that will come naturally the more you push your own boundaries. Last but not least Step Five: Put Together Your Portfolio(s) Here’s where your creative talents are allowed to shine. While all artists need to create and maintain a resume, the only way prospective employers will know what you truly have to offer is to show them visual evidence. Like everything in art, there is no perfect way to assemble a portfolio. However, there are a few rules you’d be well advised to follow. First, make sure your portfolio contains a variety of different styles and projects. A one-note portfolio, regardless of the quality, will project a graphic designer with a rigid skill-set who may not be able to work with many clients. Second, go for quality over quantity. Just because you submitted something in the past or made money from it doesn’t mean it truly represents your artistic skills today. Make sure to get feedback from a trusted source before allowing employers to see it. Third — and this is the hard part — you can’t just create one portfolio anymore. Don’t look for work without copies of your portfolio that are printed, online and on a DVD or CD. Also, don’t forget to include a unique (self-created) logo, a bio, a tagline and links to any websites or social media pages you want the hiring manager to be aware of. It’s time to put your best foot forward. Check out these sample portfolios to get an idea of what others have done. First Portfolio Example Second Portfolio Example
3: Third Portfolio Example While these five steps create a great template for pursuing a career in graphic design, there’s no substitute for actual design experience. Take on as many projects as possible, and practice as often and as long as you can. Like many things in life, the most successful graphic designers are the ones who can demonstrate talent that rises above the rest. With the right schooling, a critical eye and great work ethic, you can become the kind of graphic designer agencies and businesses are vying for.
