Careers in Graphic and Interactive Design
Graphic designers work with all components of visual communication, from traditional and historical letterforms to digital images and multimedia components. The graphic design field includes all printed and motion media that deliver information, opinion and entertainment: newspapers, magazines, books, newsletters, brochures, posters, CDs, Web-based and multimedia applications. There is a wide range of employment available in graphic and interactive design, from self-employment to work with design firms, advertising agencies or production houses.
The California Employment Development Department (EDD) collects data about the state’s workforce. These data include information about the number of people employed in the field, job outlook, and wage information. The California EDD predicts for the period 2008-2018 the number of openings for graphic designers to increase by over 6% and multimedia artists and animators to increase by over 7%.
