By combining audio, video, graphics, and text, multimedia designers/artists use multiple technologies and artistic methods to create animation and visual effects for television, movies, video games, and other forms of media. Multimedia artists must have an understanding of audio, video, 2-D and 3-D animation design and print production, as well as the ability to edit and enhance these files for use in a time-based presentation. Having a strong understanding of hardware and software on the production side is necessary. In addition, understanding hardware and software requirements on the user side will ensure the finished product will run properly across multiple platforms and environments.
A graphic/web designer, under the supervision of a design/art director, is typically responsible for developing layout and design concepts for printed or electronic media such as magazines, newspapers, corporate reports, out-of-home advertising, promotional displays, marketing brochures, company logos, and websites. Most graphic designers use a combination of traditional artist’s materials and/or software to generate the finished product.
Flexible work schedules and non-location based opportunities may allow designers to augment their income, or work exclusively, as a freelance artist/independent contractor.
