Knock Knock! The year has already begun and you have to put your batteries this time!
Seriously, graphic design is not easy. This is a lot of brain work, creativity and professionalism. It is a fact that designers have the comfort and benefit of working even from home, but at the same time, work sometimes takes longer than a normal job, 9-6 hours.
The graphic design industry is moving very fast. This means that it is constantly changing and evolving compared to other professions. There will be no time for designers to make a mistake at work. They will need to stay familiar with the new software and new industry trends. They will have to continue to increase their knowledge at work and their creativity because without it, they would have difficulties to stay alive in the design. Your work will only be sold if it is unique and creative.
Low cost, high expectation
When expectations are not met, a serious problem arises. This is the case for people who are in graphic design. They have to reach the expectations of the customers. Customers develop a confidence in them and feel that the work has to be even better than the one they need.
On the other hand, convincing customers is another problem. You may never realise the beauty of the designs due to different perspectives. So reaching the agreement between both parties is important.
Customer Vs. Professional
A patient never tells a dentist how to fix a denture. But in the case of graphic professionals, everyone peeks their nose at their work. They suggest other alternatives; Give opinions about what is right and wrong and what looks good and what doesn’t look good. The fact is that customers always want things their own way. They say things according to their own perception and ability.
It is difficult to explain the technical aspects
The designers need to be communicative. If they can not explain their work to clients then they may never be able to convince them. Design and work ideas have to be demonstrated. Designers have to act as a sales person.
Problem with free online software
With the availability of the Internet, everyone has access to graphic design software. All non-designers without experience and knowledge about the work are able to produce things that are worthless. Customers must differentiate between designers and non-designers. On the other hand, non-designers should know that just having software does not make anyone a designer.
