Division of Arts and Humanities

Graphic artists, whether freelancers or employed by a firm, use a variety of print, electronic and film media to create art that meets a client’s needs. Most graphic artists use computer software to design new images; some of this work appears on the Internet and CD-ROM. As computer software becomes increasingly sophisticated, more artists are likely to become involved with this medium.

Graphic artists may create promotional displays and marketing brochures for new products, visual designs of annual reports and other corporate literature, or distinctive logos for products or businesses. Artists may be responsible for the overall layout and design of magazines, newspapers journals, and other publications, and may create graphics for television and computer-generated media. For example, many magazines and newspapers have a homepage on the Internet.

Fine artists may sell their works to stores, commercial art galleries and museums, or directly to collectors. Commercial galleries may sell artists’ works on consignment. Those with teaching certification may teach art in elementary or secondary schools, while those with a master’s or more advanced degrees may teach in colleges or universities. Some fine artists work in arts administration in local, state or federal arts programs. Others may work as art critics, art consultants or as directors or representatives in fine art galleries, give private art lessons, or work as curators setting up art exhibits in museums.
