Being a Female, What is your Clothing Style?

Difficulties For Graphic Designers After 2013

Knock, Knock! It is already June! Half of the year has gone by, guys, and you have got to be serious this time!

There is a saying “All that glitters is not gold”. Perhaps this could be best understood by all who have come a long way to become graphic designers. But even these designers could have problems in the long run.

Seriously, graphic designing is not easy. It involves lots of brain work, creativity and professionalism. It is a fact that designers have the comfort and benefit of working even from homes but at the same time, the work sometimes takes more time from a regular 9-6 job!

So do you not want to know what puddle you could get your feet into in the next year. 


• Trendy Industry

Trendy Industry

Graphic designing industry is very fast. This means that it keeps on changing and evolving compared to other professions. There will be no time for designers to bug in work apart from designing. Instead they will have to keep themselves familiar with new software along with new trends of the industry. They will have to keep on increasing their work knowledge and creativity because without it, they would find it difficult to stay alive in the industry. The work will only sell if it is unique and creative.


• Low Cost, High Expectation

Low Cost, High Expectation

 When expectations are not met, they hurt. This is the case with people who are into graphic design. Not only do they have to make designs up to their expectations but the clients as well. When giving work, clients develop a trust in them and feel that the work would be even better than what they require. And what if it does not match their level? This is a serious issue. Moreover, convincing clients is yet another problem. They might never realize the beauty of designs because of different perspectives. So keeping a note of this issue will be important.


• Overruling Habit

Overruling Habit

A patient never tells a dentist how to fix a denture. But in case of graphic practitioners, everyone pokes their nose in the work. They suggest ways; they give opinions on what is right and wrong and what looks good and what bad. The fact is that clients always want things their way whether it is the color; getting it from green to blue or the design. They tell things according to their own perception and mind.


• Different Clients –Different Ideas

Different Clients –Different Ideas

Designing and creativity works together. New concepts should always be coming and reflecting designers’ work because only this will keep viewers focused on the work. Only a new concept would draw people’s attention. Designs should be unique and up to the mark. They should focus the brand and reflect what a company offers to people.


• Difficult to explain Technicalities

Difficult to explain Technicalities

Designers need to be communicative. If they cannot explain their work to clients then they might never be able to convince them to buy work. Or they might never be able to invite clients for more projects. The design ideas and work have to be shown and told to different people so that they could understand the way one has brought creativity to work. Designers have to act like a sales person!


• Online Free Software – A Problem

Online Free Software – A Problem

With the availability of Internet everyone has the access to graphic designing software. All the non-designers without having experience and knowledge about work are able to produce things which are not worth anything. Clients irrespective of this consider it because the cost is a mere $60. Clients should differentiate between designers and non-designers. On the other hand, non-designers should know that just having a software does not make anyone a designer.

    Free software a problem?? What kind of commercialistic bullshit is this? Goddammit, designers. Stop whining about your “problems” and start enjoying that you have a job where you earn heaps of money for having one of the most relaxed jobs in history.

    Dear Artist,

    Every job is relaxing and worth one’s efforts, it is all about how you take and consider it. :) And regarding free software I would say; a doctor knows how to insert an injection and a tailor knows how to make use of a needle. If these are taken by wrong hands could leave one hurt. You should understand this more as an artist.

    “A patient never tells a dentist how to fix a denture.” Absolutely true. The truth is, because everyone sees graphic design every day, they assume they are experts. But very few people have actually been trained in visual literacy. We don’t teach it in public schools! We don’t teach dentistry either, but most people aren’t looking at teeth every day. Visual literacy, in this day and age, should be a regularly taught course.

    “start enjoying that you have a job where you earn heaps of money for having one of the most relaxed jobs in history” – design takes a lot of time and mental effort. Creativity doesn’t come pouring out our butts – we have to work at it and we have to constantly be educating ourselves and practicing in order to come up with new concepts all the time. This can be stressful at times!! Very stressful when working with clients who don’t know what they want or when you run into clients who try to rob you.

    Almost every design client I have had so far in my career has tried to haggle me to ridiculously low prices because they don’t understand how much time and effort really goes into our work. We don’t all make heaps of money, it takes time and experience and networking to get to a point where you make a decent living – even with a degree.

    We love our jobs but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. It’s quite ignorant to think otherwise.
