As graphic and web designers, the challenges we face are numerous

On completing their requisite education, every graphic artist & web designer faces a cross road, where they must choose between gaining experience with already established brand names, or setting up their own businesses and carving a niche for themselves.

The lack of an equal stage- an undeniable reality The problem arises when you’re asked to sum up all your creativity, learning and practical knowledge into a window of thirty minutes during an interview for graphic designing jobs, or web developer jobs. In a profit- driven world controlled by connections and referrals, securing a job, solely on the strength of your artistic talent and hard-work becomes a herculean task. Your interviewers judge you on the benchmark of your real life experience and practical exposure. Sadly, even after doing numerous internships, students fresh out of art/ graphic-design school often feel themselves at a loss in terms of practical exposure within the company and network building.

The lack of a proper system of categorisation, based on differentiated skills and experience, adds to the problem. With numerous people working in the same area of expertise, the result is unnecessary competition brought about by the scarcity of opportunities and resources, in markets both online and offline.

Carving a niche for yourself- not an easy route either

Those choosing to carve their own niche do not have it easy either. Starting off as a freelancer, there are numerous factors that one has to keep in mind. Maintaining an office or studio comes with hundreds of questions- the location must be strategic in order to grab the attention of the customers, the added cost of maintaining a staff along with the fixed costs attached to a store. As someone creating art, visibility becomes essential. . The problem? Promotions and advertising burn a visible hole in your pocket.

The end result-

a compromise between achieving your dreams and the everyday struggle

As a result of the numerous problems you face in trying to create your presence, you eventually end up settling for either of these options:

  1. Working as employees with prominent, established brands: We convince ourselves that this is the best path to follow- a stable income, good infrastructure and the opportunity to gain real world exposure by working with an already established brand, having good business. Sadly, even after devoting numerous years of our lives to these workplaces, the addition to our personal growth remains negligible. Even after putting your heart and soul into your work, there is no profit sharing, no addition to your own brand value or advancement in creativity & expertise etc.
  2. An office of your own: Those of us who are lucky enough to have the necessary financial and infrastructural support, start our own stores and design studios. However, this requires a hefty amount of investment in order to pay for the fixed costs of maintain a space, hiring a team, building a clientele etc. What’s more, even after all these efforts, your designs get copied by resellers and copy editors, and you are unable to promote yourself at an international level.
  3. Working as Freelancers: In graphic design freelancing jobs or web freelance designing jobs, we are always on the lookout for opportunities, but here too online platforms and marketplaces make you grow your market through paid promotions & sponsorships. Even after investing tons of money in paid promotions and sponsorships, it takes years to carve out a niche for yourself as a graphic design freelancer or web freelance designer.
