Graphic Design is Good for Business [Infographic]

With graphic design becoming more prominent in today’s culture, it’s safe to say business is booming. But where is the job market best for a graphic designer, what should you consider before relocating for a design job and how much money would you be making?

Before relocating it’s best to consider what your job title and position would be, where is the location- a city or town, what type of education would you need and would it better your prospects with better education, what type of experience would you need and where you would work- whether it be for yourself, a small business or a large design firm. Graphic designers are 26.3% self employed, which is something to keep in mind when entering the field.

On average, graphic designers make around $48,000 yearly. Bridgeport, Connecticut has the largest amount in salary with designers averaging $78,353 a year. Then you have Salt Lake City, Utah with an average salary of $55,064 with a cost of living rank at 98. Next up we have Austin, Texas with an average salary of $54,827, then there’s San Antonio, Texas with an average salary of $46,203 and then Newark, New Jersey with an average of $40,000 a year.

A few tips when getting into the world of graphic design would be to have a responsive web design and a proper website display and interaction on any device which is now standard. You can even bring on a designer co-founder – avoid “painting lipstick on a pig” by including a designer from the get-go. Also, make sure to stand out. A good design transcends culture and language barriers and don’t forget that your goal is a pleasurable overall experience that should be functional, beautiful and simple. Graphic design is definitely good for business.
