Frequently Asked Questions
How Can I Start a Design Firm if I Don’t Have Enough Money?
If you can’t afford to start a design business, how can you get into graphic design? One of the best ways is to start small. Starting a career in design doesn’t necessarily mean starting a design “firm,” at least in the traditional sense. You don’t need to start with an office space or employees… your firm, or freelance business, can just be you.
Do I Need to Know How to Draw or Paint to be a Graphic Designer?
You don't need to be a fine artist to be a graphic designer. While it could help your career and your creative side, it is not necessary to be a sketch artist, painter or other type of artist in the traditional sense. Graphic design is about taking elements such as type, photos, illustrations, and color and combining them to create effective messages.
How Can Personal Projects Help Start a Career in Graphic Design?
One of the best ways to get started in graphic design is to take on personal projects. Whether you are trying to figure out if design is the right career for you, or if you have already decided you love it and want to build a portfolio, personal projects are a great starting point.
