Graphic Designer - Chelmsford
Every logo, every brochure layout and every “click here” button is the work of a graphic designer. It’s probably true to say that if a graphic designer has done a good job, the viewer hardly recognises that they are looking at their work – but if the design is bad, they are the first person to blame. That’s why a qualified graphic designer is so crucial to any organisation that is aiming to communicate and turn browsers into customers.
Graphic design is often compared to art, but in reality it’s an exercise in problem solving. There’s a goal and an available space, and it’s the graphic designer’s job to utilise imagery, colour and words that make the user perform an action. In this respect it’s psychological, and the knowledge of how people react to all sorts of visual cues is what makes the graphic designer an expert in their trade.
So next time you effortlessly browse through a website or admire a poster, just remember that it’s all because a graphic designer has skillfully put it together to make your journey easier
The skills required
Graphic design recruitment focuses on two elements: the education and the portfolio. Many businesses want to work with fully trained graphic designers who have a degree in the subject, or something similar such as illustration or art and design. That assures them that you understand the human element of the discipline as well as the technical requirements
You’ll need a strong portfolio of your work. That should include as much recent work as possible, and it should preferably also include details of the brief you were given and the turnaround times you delivered, as an end product often doesn’t tell the whole story.

Graphic Designer Jobs in Chelmsford
Located in Essex, Chelmsford was granted city status in 2012 and is the only city in the county. It is situated on the River Can, around 32 miles from Charing Cross and is considered to be part of the London commuter belt, meaning it offers a range of options for those seeking Graphic Designer positions.
Chelmsford's history can be traced far back in time and evidence of Neolithic and Bronze Age settlements have been found. In 1199, the town was granted a royal charter and the market is still held in the centre today.
During the Middle Ages, Chelmsford was named the county town of Essex and its population continued to grow in size. The railway arrived in the middle of the 19th century, leading to further economic growth and by the late 1800s, it had become known for its manufacturing industry, particularly electrical equipment.
In 1899, the world's first radio factory was opened in Chelmsford and during the second world war, the region produced machinery and light engineering.
During the end of the 20th century, Chelmsford declined economically. However, the city has gone through major regeneration over the last 30 years and these days it is an important location for administration and distribution.
Chelmsford is currently home to a number of large companies, including investment managers the M&G Group, electric motor manufacturer ebm-papst UK Ltd and e2v Technologies, which is known for its high-tech engineering products for the medical, science, aerospace and industrial markets.
