5 Steps to Becoming a Graphic Designer

Step Two: Let’s Get Technical

If you’re looking for a job where you don’t have to keep up with an ever changing suite of software programs, graphic design may not be for you. If, on the other hand, you’re someone who loves to stay on top of the latest developments in desktop publishing tools and design software, then graphic design may be a perfect fit.

Whether you take training courses or learn new software on your own. Either way, one of the best ways to ensure you’ll be in demand with hiring managers is to demonstrate that you won’t require training in popular programs like Photoshop or Dreamweaver, or languages like HTML/CSS or Javascript.
