Job Duties: You must first seek to understand the needs of your client or employer through detailed discussions. Decide on the best type of sign for the job and then provide them with rough sketches that convey your ideas. Create a quote that details all costs associated with the design work. Once a basic design is selected, you will use modern computer software to produce lettering, images and layouts as part of the customized design process. Several rounds of revisions may be necessary before a final composite is approved. The final steps will then involve laying out print measurements and specifications for production and checking the printer's work for quality. Some designers at larger companies may also be responsible for creating full print production budgets, advising the sales team, selecting print materials and assisting with installation requirements. Required Skills You must be artistic, creative and have a strong eye for detail. You should have normal color vision and be knowledgeable about the effective use of typography, color and visual space. You should be able to produce quality drawings by hand and possess solid experience with graphic design programs like CorelDRAW, Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. Additional skills include self-motivation, an independent work ethic, strong verbal and non-verbal communication, and the ability to effectively manage time, meet deadlines and work within a budget. Many larger employers also want you to have working knowledge of internal and external sign illumination, methods of construction and types of sign support.
