Graphic Designer - North East

Graphic Designer

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 the North East

Covering Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Teeside and County Durham, the North East includes the cities of Durham, Sunderland and Newcastle upon Tyne, as well as other communities like Gateshead, Middlesbrough and Darlington.

In the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries, the area's economy mainly relied on shipbuilding, heavy industry, coal mining and manufacturing. However, most of these faced significant decline after the second world war.

The region's economy is now mainly based in the service sector, and it is also known for its retail, art and culture. A number of tech companies are located in the North East, as well as businesses based in the petrochemical and steel industries.

What's more, the region is home to a significant amount of scientific research, particularly at the Centre for Life. This facility in Newcastle includes exhibition space for tourists, as well as a number of working laboratories that are used by biotechnology companies and medical clinics.

For those seeking Graphic Designer roles, just some of the companies that have headquarters or manufacturing facilities in the North East include Santander, Sage Group, Virgin Money, Tetley Tea, McCoy's Crisps, Greggs the Bakers, Nestle and Coca Cola.

In addition, there's BAE Systems, which manufactures military tanks, while Siemens produces steam turbines and Nissan operates the largest car factory in the UK.
