A degree in graphic design is a versatile gateway to any number of possible career options claims Nick Pons, a designer for Vancouver design firm Brady Dahmer Designs.

Citing such potential career paths as photo editing, communications management, creative direction and production management, Pons believes the sky to be the limit in this multifaceted industry.

Many universities now offer comprehensive courses in graphic design where students can learn the latest trade software, focus their creativity, and learn problem solving techniques that may give them an advantage when it is time to go job-hunting.

"Solid technical skills are the foundation for any young designer entering the workforce," says Elizabeth McDonald, the production manager at Brady Dahmer. "But self motivation and strong communication skills will set you apart from the rest."

The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects the demand for graphic designers to experience a continued annual growth of ten percent as businesses place an increasingly heavy emphasis on digital processes – suggesting that graphic design professionals may have a lot to look forward to.
