Graphic designer rehired due to efficiency and the quality of the products

The Academy of St. Louis, which is a school for children with learning disabilities, announced they have rehired a graphic designer to design their website due to his reliability.
Chris Powers, who is the president of Powers by Design, was hired by the school this past fall to design brochures. In addition, the brochures had to be completed before their annual fundraiser, which left Powers with only a couple of days. The project was completed on time.
"The last thing [the organization] needs is to have to follow up with graphic designers who don’t deliver on time or with the materials needed," said Powers.
When it came time for the school to revamp their website, they expressed that Powers was the first person they called.
Graphic design students can expect to make nearly $43,000 when they enter the field after graduation, which was the median annual salary in 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition, the top 10 percent in that year earned more than $75,000.
