I’m a Graphic Designer that has more than 20 years under my belt. 16 of those years is owning a design business. More than a Freelance Biz less than an Agency, if that makes sense. I started my career where a Graphic Designer “Designed” and thats it. Through the years my requests for digital is specs provided, I design to specs and provide the art.
Long story short, I am planning to say goodbye to my own business and join a team. I am coming to terms that a lot has changed in the world of Graphic Design right under my nose while I have been designing away all these years for specialized clientele that only wanted design from me.
As I search Jobs I notice the Graphic Designer label has quite a bit more added to it in what an employer expects from you. Maintaining social media pages, knowing code, Mail chimp, Landing pages and so on.
So I would love some input from the younger generation. What are your daily responsibilities as a designer?
