What is expected salary of a Graphic Designer in delhi?
Simply put graphic design course/training in visual communication. Usually graphic designers training are given a brief, which states what problem needs to be solved, or a specific outcome that needs to be achieved. The challenge is to collect information and analyze it to figure out with the best possible solution which can be conveyed via image or animation. The success of a good design is determined not just by how pretty the design looks, but also if it could solve or convey the message to the audience in yamuna vihar or delhi.
Graphic designers use a wide variety of visual mediums to communicate messages via shapes, fonts and colors on print design, websites and social media. A good graphic designer possesses strong interpersonal and marketing skills, in addition to an eye for details and strong knowledge of electronic media packages.
Career growth of a Graphic Designer in Delhi
Graphic designers courses are required in so many industries like Advertisement industry, Print Industry, Web designing industry etc. New designers must be aware of tools such as Photoshop, Gimp, Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Blend or more. But within 3 – 4 years of experience a designer career comes to a standstill (unless you have a highly creative mind and you are assisting or working as an art director). Unlike a career in programming where there are various layers (programming, analysis, project management) – designing is more of an individual genius than team work.
According to payscale – the salary of a graphic designer gets stagnated to a level of 4 – 5 lacs even after 6 + years of experience in the industry. The problem doesn’t stop here – job satisfaction and level of security for the profession is observed to be low.
