Careers in Design

What journey lies ahead?

Design encompasses the skills and work that go into determining the “look” of…almost everything you see around you. And nowhere is that talent more important than the virtual world of digital interactive media, where the way a piece of information or entertainment is presented can mean the difference between engagement and being ignored. It isn't simply a technical career, either. Designers frequently liaise with clients, copywriters and other stakeholders, so there’s often a strong interpersonal element in these kinds of roles. Balancing the needs and wants of various stakeholders, while solving problems and producing the most creative and beautiful work – these are the challenges a designer faces.
