The Winning Design.....

Jordan Frederick | Image Composition 241

Our class was recently given the opportunity to utilize their Photoshop and Illustrator skills to create a poster for an upcoming event with Santa. This event is sponsored by both PHS Drama and the Mount Carmel Foundation. With a few minor tweaks, you will see this poster all over town. Great job, Jordan!

Career #2 - Graphic Designer

Graphic designers create and communicate ideas visually, verbally, and in writing. As a graphic designer, you could find yourself developing and designing publications, creating brochures for products, or even designing logos for businesses.

Freedom Factor: Freelance graphic designers often work from home offices and can set their own hours. If you're a creative person, you may find many jobs repetitive and stifling... but not this one!

Training: Earning an associate's degree or certificate in graphic design from a two-year or three-year professional school should qualify you as an assistant to a graphic designer.

Salary: According to the American Institute of Graphic Arts, staff-level graphic designers had a median salary of $45,000 in 2008.
