People have been really getting into the graphics designer business lately. It’s easy to see why, as well. Who wouldn’t love to be as creative as possible while earning money as well? If you’re looking to express your artistic tendencies while earning money at the same time, then the job as a graphics designer might seem more than just alluring.
Many people really love getting into raster graphics, but that’s not the only thing that you can do in this industry. In fact, there’s a huge unsaturated segment of the market, which is all about some things that very few people even think about when they consider making a career out of becoming a graphics designer.
The most important thing that you need to consider is the possibility of doing vector graphics as well. Raster graphics are great because they’re easy to get into and you can start creating images pretty much instantly with programs such as Adobe Photoshop. But there are so many people doing this that it’s pretty hard to get a foot in the game when it comes to raster graphics.
If you’re serious about graphics design, then the answer lies within vector graphics. Of course, there’s a reason why this segment of the market is a lot less saturated, and it has to do with the difficulty of creating with vector-based tools such as Adobe Illustrator. However, this is something that you’ll learn how to overcome along the way.
Vector programs use, well, vectors as the name might suggest, to create a picture. You aren’t using pixels, and you’re instead using lines and shapes to create your image. These lines and shapes create mathematical paths which you can then change the size of without distorting the resolution. Of course, it’s a lot harder working with mathematical lines and shapes than it is with a simple brush in Photoshop.
Pixels are a lot easier to work with, but vectors can create some astonishing results as well, and they’re sought-after in pretty much every segment of the industry. It doesn’t matter whether you want to work for print or for web, the vector-based designs are going to be your bread and butter once you start using them.
Vectors are great for print because no matter how much you enlarge the image, the resolution will remain intact and the image won’t lose out on quality. That’s pretty important when you want to create massive posters which are going to cover buildings. And surprise, surprise, it’s projects like that where all the money is.
Once you start getting a taste of the money in vector graphics, you are never going to consider going back ever again. And that’s a fact. Heck, once you start getting all that money in your bank account, you might even want to start some Sex Dating as well. You can’t really do that unless you’re fully equipped monetarily, as you should be, so start today!
