How to hire graphics talent for your company

More than 60% of companies hire graphic designers or graphic designers for their websites and mobile apps, according to a new report by the Software Engineer Resource Group (SEG).

The company polled over 3,500 graphic designers and graphic designers at companies ranging from small and medium-sized companies to Fortune 500 companies and tech giants, looking at what their jobs and responsibilities are.

“Most of our respondents (78%) said they had a graphic designer at their company, and many of those said they did not use their graphic designer’s name on the job title,” the report says.

“The majority of graphic designers who reported being employed (65%) were in a senior position, with only 13% in a junior position.”

The report also found that almost 70% of those who reported working in the graphic design industry said they were asked to provide a resume and cover letter for the job.

“The number of resumes and cover letters used to recruit graphic designers dropped dramatically between 2010 and 2016, from around 3.5% to around 2.3%,” the company’s chief executive, Stephen Fagan, said.

“This reflects the changing landscape of the digital design industry, where people increasingly use their own online portfolio as the basis for their CV.”

Digital design is now increasingly the domain of professionals with design backgrounds who have worked in this area for many years.

“Mr Fagan said companies should focus on “getting the right people in the right places”, and said companies that hire graphic design professionals should also use their existing marketing resources.”

It is not that hiring graphic designers is the only way to go, it is just the way to do it,” he said.

The report has been published in a new edition of the Software Engineering Review (SER) entitled Software Engineering Talent: A Case for the Future.”

If you need to hire someone who does not have a design training background and/or design portfolio, consider a freelance design practice,” it added.”

If you are hiring someone who has a design background you will need to do a little bit of research on their work and make sure they have been using a design studio that has provided an adequate number of design resources for their portfolio.”

“If you need to hire someone who does not have a design training background and/or design portfolio, consider a freelance design practice,” it added.

The research also found companies should hire people who have “a strong passion for digital design”, which can be as diverse as a person’s interests, the company said.
