Graphic Design and Industry Experience

In the past I’ve listed all of my industry experience—and there is a lot. Some industries/products many have never even heard before. (I must add, a unique industry is really fun because it’s interesting and you’re not at risk of duplicating anyone else.) But does industry experience matter when it comes to graphic design? I’m inclined to say “not really.” First, I’m not going to duplicate anything I’ve done before in an industry. Second, graphics get out-of-date, so I always start afresh.

It MAY matter to know whether some kind of style is done-to-death. For many years I worked with the Fresh Produce Industry. There is nothing new under the sun with graphic design. Literally. Most logos feature the sun over a green agricultural field. I know what’s out there. Chances are whatever I come up with for graphic design has already been done, but before I start a project, I research the current graphic design trends within that industry.

Don’t worry, I’ve got it covered!

 

I’m here to stay!

Recently, I’ve had 2 inquiries to my status as a graphic designer. True, many women drop the career after they get married and have children, but I am not one of them. 🙂 I will be doing graphic design till the day I die, God willing.

It may help to know I do not have children, nor will I. This is why my turnaround is so quick, and why you can depend on me to see a project to completion, and without interruption. 🙂 I do not have to attend to sick children, run to a soccer match, or attend a PTA meeting.

A quick word about my operation hours: I often work in the evenings and on Sundays, but usually do not take phone calls.
