If you love designing and most of the time
daydreaming about creating designs, you may
consider graphic designing to be a career option
for you. Graphic designing is all about stirring
your creative mind and bringing out extraordinary
designs.
The designing jobs have become competitive apart
from being just popular. Thus, you need to stand
out in the crowd with an appropriate set of
skills.
Getting a formal education or pursuing a formal
study is not enough for you to seize
opportunities. You need to work hard for becoming
a pro in graphic designer.

1) Understand the fundamentals of graphic design
Learning the fundamentals of any field is like
learning the letters to create words and
sentences. You cant underrate the step anyways.
A strong empire can be made only when the
fundamental is strong and upright. You cant skip
any step while developing your skills in graphic
designing.
Becoming a graphic designer without any formal
education is possible, but you need to make sure
that a thorough grounding in the theory and the
practices of design is a must- have to do your
job well.
It has also been found that students who have
pursued three years of graduation course in
graphic designing are lacking many necessary
skills which are needed at the workplaces.

2) Develop your Software Skills
To become a pro in graphic designing, you need
to learn as many software as you can. Learning
software, for once is never enough as there are
daily updates and improvements in that software.
Most of the programs and formal education will
not teach you heavy software, and you have to put
your extra effort to learn them.
While the academic courses will help you to
understand the concepts and the principles, the
practical hands-on software knowledge will
increase your problem-solving capability while
working on real-time projects.

3) Develop the correct setup
Being a graphic designer means that you have to
deal with heavy and multiple software at once. It
is not only about runj9ng Microsoft office, and
thus you need to have the right kind of set up
for that.
Most of the software which runs in your computer
is a graphic designer demand for a better RAM and
high capacity hard disk. Your mouse also needs to
be something different than the regular and which
are exclusively used for designing.

4) Work for Charity or start freelancing
If you think that learning alone can help you to
become a pro in your graphic designing journey,
then you are enough wrong.
The first thing you need to understand here is
that graphic designing is all about creativity,
and the definition of becoming creative is
different for different groups of people.
Thus, once you have started learning and, on
your way, to becoming a pro, you need to
understand the demand of the market and set new
challenges for your self to polish your skills.
You cant wait for your dream project to
showcase all the skills that you have acquired so
far. It takes immense practise to reach the stage
of perfection.
Through Charity or working as a freelancer, you
can offer your services either for free or
against a very minimal charge.

5) Get in touch with established designers
You can never be the best one until you get to
compare your skills to others. Creativity makes
you competitive enough and as we discussed
earlier, the definition of being creative is
different for all. But there must be some
established designers already, whom you look up
to or maybe whose designs inspire you to do even
better things.
There is an excellent idea that you can follow.
A placement with a good design studio, as an
intern can get you invaluable experiences. You
will also get the opportunity to see closely how
the design companies run and what are the
challenges they face while competing in the
market. If you can show your skills and talent
within the organisation, you can also bag a
full-time job in the same organisation.

6) Create Your work portfolio
Creating your design portfolio is a must-do and
maybe a must-have in your belongings. A work
portfolio is a systematic and organised
presentation of your working skills through
various projects.
You can demonstrate your ability through a work
portfolio in front of new customers or even while
looking for a job in a designing studio or
company.
Creating a robust portfolio can help you to dive
in the ocean of all that you have worked on and
finding the best one to show. But an online
presence is equally important to express yourself
to a large number of mass.

7) Be a part of award schemes
The world is turning out to be a competitive
platform day by day, and you cant leave any
single stone unturned. You never know which
platform can get you what. Thus, you need to be
very cautious about the to-do list while trying
to become a pro graphic designer.
If you want to build a good reputation, having
some accolades under your belt is the best
possible idea. There are plenty of award schemes
where you can submit your work and try your luck.
This is a great thing to do while you are trying
to bag a dream job.

Takeaway
The one and intact step of becoming a pro
graphic designer is to keep going. The design
industry is changing according to the taste of
various other sectors which are dependent on
graphic designing for many purposes. You may
encounter many more steps in between if needed.
Keep going means that you need to keep on
creating great designs and keep stirring the
creativity inside you.
