Design Jobs

A designer conceptualises and designs an item and completes the process by working closely with production companies. There are many different kinds of design you can work in. (e.g. Fashion, costume, interior, product, website)

Who can I work for?

Many designers work as part of a design agency. Some designers decide to work as self-employers. In this case these designers would usually produce their work by hand and sell it through art fairs or their own shop or gallery. Freelancing jobs are often also available.

Where and when can I work?

Most designers generally work in studios. Website designers can work in an office or from home. Fashion designers work in studios but may need to travel often. Product designers can work as part of manufacturing companies. In order to meet deadlines, designers can sometimes work very long hours, but otherwise at standard office hours.

What will I be responsible for?

Most designers begin a project by discussing it with a team or client. Costume designers are responsible for studying the script, designing, sketching and sourcing materials for the costumes. Web designers design the text, pictures and page layouts of the site, before uploading it to the Internet. Textile designers will create their designs by hand or using computer software, and take the designs to be made into samples. Product designers are responsible for the progression of a product idea, as set out in the design brief determined by the client. They use computer programs to create an image of the product, and will decide on its materials.

What qualifications do I need?

The kind of qualifications you will need varies tremendously in different design fields. For entry into most design jobs, you will need to prepare a portfolio of work and have gained an appropriate degree.
