Graphic Design Jobs

What do I need to know to land a graphic design job

Most telecommute graphic design jobs will require knowledge of Photoshop software. Photoshop is a complicated and powerful image editing tool that is so ubiquitous that it’s become a verb, as in “The picture of the man flying was clearly photoshopped.” The software itself is rather expensive, with the full advanced version costing around $630 on Amazon.com. Even if you have the software, it’s worthless if you don’t know how to use it. Most community colleges, however, have classes about learning Photoshop. They might even have Photoshop installed on their lab computers so you can learn the software without spending the hundreds of dollars for getting your own copy. You could also go to your library and get a book or two about Photoshop. For example, you could pick up a copy of 100% Photoshop: Create stunning artwork without using any photographs.

Also, in this modern day and age, knowing something about web design will often be a plus. Read some books or take some classes on HTML and CSS, which are the design building blocks of website design. Many graphic designers will also be asked to create animations with Adobe Flash. Again, check your community college and library for resources on learning Flash.

What does a telecommute graphic designer do?

Most telecommute graphic designers are needed for creating graphics for webpages. If a company is high tech enough to be hiring telecommute workers, they are probably not likely to have a printed newsletter. Rather, they are probably looking for someone to work on the website. You’ll probably create logos, edit pictures, make navigation buttons, and do similar website design tasks. Also, it’s uncommon that one firm’s website will need a full time graphic designer. Rather, most telecommute graphic design work is part time. So, you will likely need to apply to and accept a number of jobs to get a full load of work. However, that being said, the more jobs you have, the better your portfolio will look, and the better your chances will be of getting a new job. In the world of graphic design, your portfolio speaks much louder than any education you’ve had. If you’ve taken 30 Photoshop courses, but your pictures look ugly, you won’t get the job. But, if you’ve trained yourself in your spare time, or you grew up doing Photoshop from the time you were a baby, but never had a second of formal training, but your images look fantastic, then you’ll likely get the job.
