So, you’ve been thinking about becoming a graphic designer? That’s great! But are you sure you have the chops? Have you asked yourself recently, “What does it take to be a graphic designer?”. Welcome to the club, even after 15 years I ask myself the same question. It’s a good thing. Graphic design is a constantly evolving industry, and you have to keep up with the changes. It takes more than a creative mind. You have to be technical, and be able to ask the right questions.  Take a look at this wonderful infographic that walks you through the decision process and maps it out with style. The below infographic comes via Michael Stout who states, ” This was meant to be a fun handout at a high school career fair to interest kids in graphic design as a job”. Thanks to designer, Michael Stout via Visual.ly for sharing the great design work with us at PBeCreative.com! Just click to enlarge.
