Designers: creative design of functional products and solutions
Designers can be found in different areas: While product designers are responsible for the functionality and aesthetics of articles of daily use, media designers ensure the user-friendliness of websites and software. Designers can work at the interface to the sales & marketing unit or in the development department of companies, as freelancers or in projects.
Which opportunities do designers have on the labour market?
In companies, designers develop new products in cooperation with sales and marketing units and ensure the functionality and aesthetics of products and solutions – always taking into account customer wishes, current trends and general requirements. Designers create fashion, furniture, household appliances/products, home accessories or vehicles – just to name a few fields of activity.
In media design, they enable the intuitive use of magazines, newspapers, books, catalogues, websites or software interfaces and are responsible for the creation of appealing layouts.
The competition in the design industry is very strong. However, due to the wide range of possibilities, designers who have a specialisation and excellent skills have still good prospects on the labour market.
