Graphic Designer - Darlington
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 Darlington
Anyone familiar with the history of railways will already be familiar with the name Darlington. The 26-mile Stockton and Darlington railway was the first commercial railway in the world, opened in 1825 to great acclaim. Within 50 years, the railway system covered the whole country, and many of the mainlines remain in place today. Because of its early adoption, Darlington became a centre of engineering, with several of the large companies, including Robert Stephenson & Co., setting up there.
Bridge building and engineering are still strongly associated with the town. The Darlington name is embossed on bridges the world over, and many a lorry driver will be familiar with the name Cummins, the American engineering firm that makes diesel engines among many other things, which has a plant in Darlington employing around 700 people.
Darlington was originally a market town, part of the reason it required a rail link, and that remains today, with much of the surrounding area being served by its shopping area. Its largest single employer is Orange, which has a call centre there. The town is well served by rail, air and road, with great links to Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Middlesbrough and Hartlepool. With so much engineering and commerce going on, and a mobile population, Darlington is a great place to look for Graphic Designer jobs, so please get in touch if you’re in the area looking for this kind of work.
