According to The Princeton Review, nearly 25,000 people try to enter the field of graphic design each year. But only about 60 percent persevere the first two years, and only about 30 percent make it to the 5 year mark.
Graphic designers aren’t limited to cut-throat agency life or the unstable freelance market. So before you even think about giving up, take a minute to consider a few examples of some interesting and unorthodox design careers:
1. Film Title Design
A good film title sequence sets the tone, builds up anticipation–and can sometimes be better than the film itself. Who could forget those iconic James Bond title sequences?
2. Visual Journalism
Both news professionals and visual communicators, visual journalists know how to tell a story through maps, info-graphics, videos, illustrations, and more.
3. Environmental Design
Environmental design can be architecture-focused, but it also includes executing something like the overall visual design for the Olympics. From ensuring cohesive signage to syncing up the looks of the stadiums, it takes a graphic designer’s eye to pull it all together.
