Graphic Designer Reviews

What is it like working as a Graphic Designer?

Graphic Designer in Gold Coast:
"It's a creative role that can be rewarding if right company."
Pros: Creative, Learning new things all the time. Problem solving design dilemmas. Seeing what u can create from scratch or minimal direction. Working in a creative environment with like minded people.
Cons: The LOW pay. Having to contact already disgruntled client because of poor sales advice. Chasing client who are unresponsive. High pressure for reaching performance targets when it is luck of the draw with clients response. High pressure with print deadlines. Assumptions from everyone who isn't a designer assuming that what we do is easy and can be done as quick as writing an email! My particular workplace seems to be ok with sales reps being underhanded with clients duping them into a no cancel contract - we then have to deal with angry and uncooperative clients. They are also all about numbers and not quality of work often allowing sub standard work to go through while I spend extra time making it good.

Graphic Designer in Perth:
Pros: The environment and chance to create some very cool designs in all areas (web, print, branding etc). People I work with.
Cons: Flaky work methods. Micro managing superviser. Doing a job in which I'm not particualarly suited for.
