A West Virginia graphic designer explains how the profession has changed over the years and his personal experiences with it. Mark Wolfe started his own company once he left the corporate world 17 years ago, according to the Sunday Gazette-Mail.

The Charleston resident's speciality is logo design but he explains to the newspaper that it can be difficult because he is attempting to reflect a person's personality onto a design, and that is also the reason why he loves it.

Wolfe, who use to doodle different corporate signs as a 5-year-old, always knew he wanted to be a graphic designer. He shares that individuals in this field used to have to cut screens, create layers and put registration marks all by hand. Now that it has moved to computers, Wolfe was able to start his company from home.

"The great blessing I have is I am never bored," he said to the newspaper. "I like doing things that enhance my life and other people's lives."

Graphic designers students may run into keen competition upon graduation, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employment in this field is expected to increase by 13 percent between 2008 and 2018, which is just above the average for all occupations.
