The Design Industry Unpacked

by Claire Dillon

As a student about to make the transition from young, naïve grasshopper to fully-fledged designer, it’s important to learn about the industry I’ll (hopefully) work in. My infographic explores some of the most important aspects of the design industry in the eyes of the humble student: what skills you need, where people work, how long is the average working week and are you likely to be broke by the end of it.

My infographic unpacks statistics from the 100 Archive 2016 Survey and lays it all out there. I chose to draw inspiration from blueprints and isometric layouts and illustrate my information in the form of a designer’s everyday objects, an abundance of sticky notes included.
