Careers in design can be an engaging and rewarding pathway for individuals who are artistically inclined and have a good eye for color, shapes, and patterns. Examples of professions in this field include interior designers, graphic designers, and web designers. While a strong sense of aesthetics is very important for designer occupations, knowledge of and skill with the technical side of design—architecture in the case of interior designers, software and web applications for graphic and web designers—are also important. Thus, training in both the artistic and technical sides of design may be helpful for individuals in this field. For more information about careers in design, please see the pages below.
