a day in the life of a designer

As a graphic designer, your job is to create powerful, meaningful designs that help your client communicate their product or service on a visual level.  In a nut shell, you get to be creative and there is someone paying you to do it!  However, there is a reality to this career with revisions, mark-ups, endless meetings and long hours – sometimes your creativity is challenged.

I recently saw this infographic on the life of a designer and just had to share it!

If you are a graphic designer, I am sure you will be able to relate to this… who needs sleep, well balanced meals and exercise?  I promise life is not like this every day – but somedays…..

Each long night, each trying client, each stressful day is creating your story, creating your experiences as a designer… only making you better!




About dryinkdesigns

A marketing and business development background is the foundation for Mandi Boedicker’s passion for creating memorable branding support for a number of clients. Initially a graphic designer by trade, Boedicker’s marketing experience in the construction industry sparked a passion for networking and community partnerships. Dry Ink Designs was a natural next step. Boedicker’s freelance client work had spanned over ten years already while maintaining a full-time career, so she turned her creative energy into a career that benefitted the relationships she was building. Strengths in calligraphy, painting and photography soon grew into strengths in corporate identity strategy and marketing/communications support.
