Graphic Designer - Widnes
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 Widnes
At the north-eastern edge of Cheshire lies Widnes, a town of around 60,000 population built on heavy industry, particularly chemicals, where ICI had a huge presence for decades before fragmenting in the 1990s. The chemical industry chose Widnes partly for the plentiful supply of water, just like Runcorn, to which it is joined by a railway and road bridge over the Mersey.
The centre of Liverpool is 11 miles (17 km) to the west, with Liverpool John Lennon Airport just 4 miles (7km) form the centre of Widnes. Although not actually in Widnes, the Jaguar Land rover car production plant is just outside the town in Halewood, and it has been a large employer of people from Widnes. For decades the plant was owned by Ford, and the locals still cal the main boulevard that passes it “The Ford Road”. Under the new management, the factory is doing extremely well, helped by a local enthusiastic workforce.
Widnes has two musical claims to fame, one certain, one apocryphal. First was the Stone Roses’ Spike Island gig, the pinnacle of the Madchester scene in 1990. The second claim is that Paul Simon wrote “Homeward Bound” at Widnes Station, although Simon isn’t 100% sure himself!
Widnes has retained many of its industrial plants, although they are no longer owned by the giant ICI, and have been taken over by a multitude of companies. The well-connected town is handy for Liverpool, Warrington, St Helens and Runcorn, and has the M62 at its northern point. All this makes it a good place to locate any logistics operations, and indeed, Graphic Designer jobs or similar positions have been through our system in Widnes.
