Joining a Graphic Design Studio
For the past couple of years, the trend of graphic design work being done by freelancers and done out of their homes is on the rise. The reasons vary from the convenience of having a laptop and mobile computer or wireless connection, to a better paycheck, to just simply wanting the freedom to take work home with them, to the point where many graphic designers and freelancers feel the need to offer their services to companies and individuals on a full-time basis, and then some.
In today’s landscape of the freelance community, designers and independent artists need to be able to market themselves well to gain work. If you know someone who runs a graphic design studio, you may want to enlist their help in making contacts for you and possibly setting you up as a student.
Discovering what the studio offers
If you are interested in working at a graphic design studio, you may be wondering if you can just jump in and show up one day and start working. Unfortunately, for most studios, that’s not how the business works.
Your first interview is likely to be an informational interview, or interview for information. The interviewer will ask you about what you want to do, what design experience you have, and what you know how to do in the studio. The interviewer may ask you what qualifications you feel you have to work there and why you’d be good for the company. If the interviewer feels that you have what he or she wants, they may even let you look at their portfolio and talk about the projects they’ve done and the things they like about them.
The interview is just the beginning. It may be months before they call you back and offer you a position. During that time, the position may be posted on a job board or you may be out there looking for a position and you’ll contact someone and be hired on the spot.
If you’re lucky, you’ll find out about the studio through another freelancer or through your network or a friend. If you do find out about the studio through a friend, make sure you leave a good impression. It may be a small, in-person interview or a phone call. If the place is going for a physical address, you may want to visit the studio
