2017 Graphic Design Entry-Level Jobs

Graphic design entry-level jobs are widely available for those with the right training and/or education. In fact, as of 2010, there were about 279,200 positions in graphic design, and opportunities in the field are expected to grow around 13% by the year 2020. UX (user experience) and UI (user interface) design are tangential fields that are growing extremely rapidly and graphic design skills often transition to those opportunities fluidly.

So, what do jobs in graphic design entail? While every graphic design job is different, all of them, as the title implies, ask you to design or to create something new. Just what it is that you're creating and how you create it will vary from one position to the next. Some people design logos and advertising or marketing concepts for companies. Others create website graphics, while some make posters or works of art. Some people draw their designs by hand, while others, as is becoming increasingly common in today's world, use software programs to perfect their designs.

The average person with a graphic design entry-level job will make around $43,500 per year. Salaries might be higher or lower depending on where you work, the type of design you do, and other factors. Some people work as freelance graphic designers, finding their own work and setting their own rates. Those working freelance, as well as those working in advertising or in specialized design sectors tend to make the highest salaries. Pay rates are around average or slightly below for those working in publishing. As you can see, the graphic design field encompasses a wide range of jobs, and it's important to choose the right one for you, your interests, and your skills.
