Looking at creative jobs in London and the UK and unsure whether to apply? Here are some of the key skills creative graduate jobs require, so you can decide if design opportunities are right for you.
Whilst creative design jobs can be in a number of fields, no matter the industry, you’ll need to be creative, artistic and technically minded, with a great eye for detail. An essential component of all design industry jobs is creating content that aligns with the company’s brand identity and attracts the intended target audience. It’s essential not only to be highly creative with graduate design jobs, but to also be commercially and industry aware.
With graduate graphic design roles, you’ll be expected to have excellent IT skills, with an ability to use photo-editing software such as InDesign and Photoshop. It’s also beneficial with design jobs to have a basic understanding of web design and design software related to website development such as WordPress.
Another key skill required for entry-level design jobs is excellent time management. Often, designers are juggling multiple projects at once, so it’s imperative to have great critical thinking and deadline management abilities.
If you’re a creative, technically skilled and organised graduate, creative design jobs are ideal for you. Find out further information on what it’s like working in the creative industry
Looking at design graduate schemes in London and the UK and unsure whether to apply? Here’s a summary of the tasks design graduate schemes involve, along with some of the many benefits.
Design graduate schemes are available to graduates straight out of university, with most schemes a 1-3 year training programmes where graduates gain experience in a variety of design sectors before choosing a design graduate career path to follow. If you’re interested in design, but not sure if you want to specialise in graphic, UX, UI, web or product design, a graduate scheme is a great way of allowing you to gain experience and skills in a variety of departments, before choosing a specific sector to specialise in. As opposed to graduate design roles, graduate design schemes allow graduates to work on projects from start to end, gaining hands-on experience, which is essential to design roles.
Another great advantage of design graduate schemes is that often graduate schemes will transition to permanent roles within the company you carried out your program with. Beginning a graduate career in design can be a daunting task, and participating in a creative graduate scheme allows graduates to gain a broad understanding of the design industry and gain a variety of useful techniques before kick-starting a graduate design job.
If you’re looking to fast-track a graduate design job and quickly gain in-depth knowledge of the industry, design graduate schemes could be an ideal option for you.
