What’s the greatest part about being a graphic artist?

The one thing I miss lately in my design work: Super close work with others. Anthony Wood over at Creative Boom writes about his 10 favorite reasons:

Graphic designers are rarely alone; they’re often part of a creative team or working closely with the client, collaborating to come up with the best possible solution. You’re likely to get to know PR professionals, copywriters, marketers, advertisers… you’ll probably work with senior management and be expected to consult with company directors.

Your role will rely on many business relationships; the knock-on benefits of which will only boost your skills and experience – especially your ability to effectively deal with different personalities.

I love talking through visual approaches, getting super into detail about the schedules, and coming to agreement on changes. My current projects involve mostly independence – less collaboration. Much of the fun involves engaging with positive and passionate designers, editors, and project managers to put the puzzle together. 

For me, that’s the best kind of design work beyond making everything look pretty.
