The creative arts & design industry allows those with a strong creative skill set to contribute to a huge range of projects - and get paid for their input!
It can be a bit of a tricky industry to crack, particularly at entry level because there is so much competition, but once you do it’s highly rewarding. There aren’t many other industries that allow you to explore your creativity and utilise your imagination like this one!
Working in the creative industries means more than just liking fashion or reading an art blog. You’ll need to be highly self-aware and spend time developing your own unique style or brand, especially if you want to primarily work for yourself and work on a freelance/commission basis. Think about the designers or artists you like best – they're the ones whose work you recognise and can't help but stand back and admire.
At the beginning of a career in the creative industry it’s unlikely that you’ll be making the key decisions - particularly if you’re working for a company. Instead, you’ll be an assistant as you learn the ropes of the industry and also have the room to develop your own processes under the guidance of those with more experience. Alongside this, you’ll develop your communication skills with clients and potentially how to work across multiple teams. Communication is crucial for client work in this industry to ensure that both parties are happy with the final product.
There can be strange working hours in this industry, with many having to burn the midnight oil in order to meet deadlines for clients, runway shows, productions, or any other creative event you can think of.
Developments in technology have also opened up this industry and created a whole host of new jobs. Those with skills in photoshop, CAD, InDesign, and animation are high in demand.
