What does a Junior Graphic Designer do?

A Junior Graphic Designer assists with the development of visual material for use in publications, printed work or websites. You might work with clients to develop a design brief including preferred layouts, images, colours and text. Junior Graphic Designers might help with the creation of initial sketches and designs before using industry software to develop visual materials.

Junior Graphic Designers need to be creative and able to come up with unique ideas. You’ll usually have to work to a deadline so organisation and time management skills are crucial. Graphic Designers need to communicate well with clients and with other members of the design team. Attention to detail is important and you’ll need to be able to follow directions.
