Did you know that graphic design can be your ticket to building up a strong network? You may think that graphic design is such a solitary profession. You spend most of your time on your computer drawing, coloring, and making all kinds of stunning imagery in-line with what your client wants and needs. But in reality, graphic design is far from being that quite a job. According to this infographic, it’s a great way of meeting and forming strong business relationships with other people. While it may not necessarily be public relations, the network you get to form might just be a good one.
Firstly, the clients. When you provide your talents to a client, you get to form a relationship will benefit both parties. You get paid and the client gets the logo/website/poster/etc. that he/she needs. If they like your work, they’ll most likely recommend you to other businesses in need of the same services and the cycle repeats itself. Furthermore, when you’re working for an ad agency, you get to collaborate and work with other artists in the field. With them, you get to learn and share numerous text styles, photoshop tricks, and the like. You might even get a new client or two from them as well.
Never close your doors to various possibilities when you’re a graphic designer. This is a great way to getting your name out there and hopefully making it big with the help of the right connections. You never know, suddenly you’re more known than you realize!
