Your career guide

The graphic design sector is a very broad employment sector with most graphic designers working for companies specialising in advertising, marketing or corporate communications, or as part of internal (in-house) design teams of large organisations such as retailers.

Vacancies for graphic designers can attract strong competition so speculative applications can be productive and there is a higher than average likelihood of being self-employed or freelance within this profession.
