Graphic design schools are a popular, yet difficult, industry for companies to enter.
In 2018, however, there’s a new outlook: They’re the future.
The Graphic Design Industry Association (GDIA) has launched an online survey asking students, staff, and employers to take a look at the industry, its opportunities, and how it can help them make more money in the coming year.
The GDIA has already taken submissions from the public for its first survey.
The GDIA is currently collecting responses from a wide range of employers, schools, and other organizations, including Adobe, Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft, Mozilla, and more.
The survey has two sections: a short survey about the graphic design industry and a longer survey, which addresses how employers can be more effective in recruiting graphic designers in the industry.
Here’s how the GDIA describes its two sections.
Short survey about Graphic Design Schools:The short survey asks employees what the industry is like and what opportunities they see as they work in graphic design.
It will answer questions like “Do you think Graphic Design is a viable career?” and “Do employers consider graphic design to be a key skill in the future of the industry?”
As with most industries, there are a number of reasons employers consider hiring graphic designers to be key skills, said David Smith, vice president of external affairs for the GDIC.
There are two reasons why employers look for graphic designers: one is for a better design, and the other is for better marketing.
For example, in marketing, employers can use the information they gain from a good designer to target more relevant advertising.
“It helps the marketing team make the best decisions,” Smith said.
Employers also look for good designers to work on marketing campaigns and other marketing campaigns.
Graphic designers are also great at doing visual design work, because they are great at creating images, so it makes sense that employers look to them for that type of work.
Employers also can see how employers will attract graphic designers.
In the short survey, employers asked employees how they would like to see the company as a whole grow.
The short survey asked respondents what they think about the current position of the company.
In short, it asks what would be a good place for the company to go in the years to come.
“The long survey is about graphic design companies in the U.S.,” Smith said, referring to the GDIE’s survey.
“I think that will be the biggest question that’s going to come up in this survey.”
The long question asked employees to list the top five industries they would be looking for a graphic designer in.
It asked how many employees they think are in each of the top three industries.
For example, employers could look at each industry’s share of total employees and see how many people they would want to hire a graphic design student.
The question about how many graphic designers the company would like for the job is the most important.
“Employers need to know how many Graphic Design students are available and how many companies they can recruit them from,” Smith explained.
The short and long surveys also ask employers about the potential to increase gross margins for graphic design employers.
Employer-employee interactions are crucial for companies that want to increase their gross margins, said Smith.
“The more people who are engaged with the graphic designers they’re recruiting, the better their gross margin will be.”
The survey also asked employees what they would change about their work to increase efficiency, increase productivity, and reduce costs.
For graphic designers, these are all important areas of improvement, because graphic design is a highly skilled, repetitive, and time-consuming profession.
“It’s a tough job to make money,” said Greg Kallenberg, senior vice president at Adobe Creative Software.
“You need to do it right.
If you don’t do it the right way, then the job isn’t going to pay you what you make.”
To see if you qualify for the survey, you’ll have to fill out the online form and submit your information.
The survey will close on October 30, 2018.
