Graphic Designers.


If you're fascinated by the differences between the fonts Times New Roman and Geneva -- or simply enjoy arranging photos on a page -- you may have a future in graphic design. One of the most practical paths for artsy people, graphic design requires not only a good eye but an ability to use the computer as a tool for achieving your vision. Graphic designers work with type and images to create the look for CD inserts, books, magazines, posters, catalogs, and other products. Some also design websites.

Earnings

The average yearly income of graphic designers was $48,690 in 2011, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
