Graphic Designer Jobs Through Freelance Web Site

One new Web site will help people looking for graphic designer jobs.

A group of graphic designers based in South Carolina has launched, an employment site that will help graphic designers find paid freelance jobs, according to an article by the Charleston Regional Business Journal.

The new site gives freelance graphic designers free access to hundreds freelance jobs that range from one-day assignments to more in-depth, long-term projects. Employers looking to hire freelance graphic designers can post job advertisements for free at

People who might find the site useful include full-time freelance graphic designers, part-time and aspiring graphic designers looking for short-term projects.

Most entry-level graphic designer jobs require a bachelor's degree, but an associates degree may be acceptable for some technical jobs. According to the United States Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 25 percent of graphic designers are self-employed. Many hold down salaried jobs as well as complete freelance work.

In 2006, graphic designers held about 261,000 jobs in America. Most worked in specialized design services, advertising and related services, printing and related support activities or newspaper, periodical, book and directory publishers.

Other designers produced computer graphics for computer systems design firms or motion picture production firms. A small number of designers also worked in engineering services or for management, scientific and technical consulting firms.

Employment of graphic designers is expected grow about as fast as average during the next several years. Fierce competition for jobs is expected and individuals with a bachelor’s degree and knowledge of computer design software, particularly those with Web site design and animation experience, will have the best opportunities.
