Graphic design should not be considered an entry level job, says a study released Tuesday by the Institute of Education Sciences at Indiana University.
Graphic design is not considered a relevant career in the top 10 percent of employers.
Instead, it’s the third-most common position in the United States.
The Institute for Education Sciences found that graphic design is an entry requirement for only 4 percent of jobs.
That’s less than one in three of all jobs in the country.
That percentage of jobs is even lower than the 6 percent that are held by those with Bachelor of Arts degrees, which makes it the second-lowest of all career fields.
“It’s a little bit of a disappointment,” said the institute’s CEO, Robert S. Miller, who said the study is important for both employers and the public to understand the importance of the field.
Graphic designers are considered the best at designing visual and visual-based presentations.
They often create highly complex and aesthetically pleasing designs that appeal to audiences of all ages.
The graphic designer can design and build interactive and interactive-type interfaces.
They are adept at designing logos and branding, as well as video and photography and audio.
Graphic Designers earn up to $40,000 a year, and they often work for large companies such as Microsoft, Adobe and Apple.
“The people that are the best in the field, those people will be able to do the work that people in other fields can’t do,” Miller said.
“We can be the best graphic designers in the world, but we can also be a very important part of the world that people are looking to us for.”
The institute said graphic design requires at least a bachelor’s degree and a four-year degree in computer science.
A computer science degree typically has to be earned in college.
Miller said the graphic design field is not the same as the design or graphic design profession.
He said it’s important to have a degree that allows you to develop skills, such as graphic design theory and graphic design practice.
Miller also said graphic designers are responsible for creating and maintaining an effective and consistent workflow and that the best work can be created and shared by professionals in a timely manner.
“I don’t think we’re going to have an economy that can sustain an economy where a graphic designer is working three jobs, or six jobs, for a decade,” Miller told ABC News.
“That’s not the way our economy should be.”
Miller said there are two primary factors that affect a person’s ability to do graphic design: the number of years of education and the skill level.
“If you have no experience, if you have a Bachelor’s degree, but not an Associate’s degree or a Masters degree, then you’re not going to be able [to do graphic work],” he said.
Miller suggested that a graphic design degree should be a prerequisite for most jobs, as the field is highly specialized.
He recommended starting with a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design or Design and Design, or a Bachelor or Master of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Arts.
“All the information is in front of you, but it’s not all there is,” he said of his recommendations.
Miller cited one study that showed graphic design was one of the least sought-after careers among high school students.
He suggested that students should study a variety of graphic design courses and internships.
“You don’t have to be in graphic design,” Miller advised.
Miller recommended that employers look at the job requirements, not the type of work.
“There are very few jobs that are required for graphic designers, and there are a lot of job requirements for software engineers,” he added.
“When I started looking at job requirements I didn’t realize how difficult they are.”
Miller, the president of the Institute for Design, Communication and Information at IUPUI, said employers should not expect a graphic designers education and work experience to match a job description, but rather to provide a more professional and flexible approach to design.
“Designers are not the best job candidates,” Miller warned.
“They don’t get the best salary.
They don’t build the most beautiful designs.
They need to work with a team and with designers to create work that fits the needs of the customers and the company.”
If you’re going in as a student, you should be working with a group of designers who are able to give you the most consistent, efficient, and effective product,” he continued.
Miller added that graphic designers should look for positions that offer flexible hours, paid vacations, and paid sick days.
He also suggested that companies hire more students to fill jobs, especially in graphic and print design.
People who have an advanced degree in design and graphic arts, such a master’s degree,” Miller continued, “they should not have that opportunity to work on something that’s so different from what they’re doing in the job market right now.” Miller is
