Being a Graphic Designer!!!
Being a Graphic Designer is an original and creative experience you have the chance to develop thousands of different ideas and all you need to do is using you imagination anytime you want!!! That’s right! All graphic designer’s ideas worth money because they could be becoming into a successful advertising campaign, also the population expects new things, so these professionals can experiment with all kind of materials, messages and mediums. The originality is other gift graphic designers have to get to develop our own trademarks, which means a specific way to do our job so people can know the worker trough his/her work, also everybody identifies a unique designing style and it is easy to remember.
Graphic Designer mixes up the antique arts with the coolest technology. We may use our hands to create money because we can develop a new campaign with draws, painting, pictures, photos, etc… it’s an artistic talent used in a complete new way. Graphic designers also can use all the resources they imagine no matters how crazy they are, but right now the technology is indispensable for us so the Computers are become in the graphic designer’s best friend, these machines are used almost for everything since simple logos designs until complete website and advertising presentations. Today there’s MAC craziness, Macintosh inc. had developed computer with special designing functions and with more options than a regular pc, that’s why Graphic designers really love this kind of computer and spend more money to have one of these.
The Graphic Designers have a power we can become a single product into a bunch of money! For that we have to develop a successful campaign and the first step should be to know the “target” that means meet who is going to buy the product or the population, where they buy the product or special needs for a specific region or city and why they buy the product or why the product is a need. Advertisings are the second step, we must show the product in different mediums like TV and web. One of these ways is the P.O.P. material witch is a kind of present you give to the costumer or buyer like t-shirts, cups, key rings, etc. Furthermore there’re the TV commercials witch help us to show how the product looks like and make the target think they really need to have it an in addition there’ re the web advertisings like banners, pops up, pops under, buttons, etc; witch show the product or service around the worlds.
