They work on their computer, design flyer, brochures, magazines, books, etc. They put photography, illustrations and typography together and the result has to convince the viewer.
worked together before
A couple of times.
I am afraid that some clients are not willing to pay an appropriate price for the designer’s work – especially in smaller towns.
working at night per month
Many times per month.

observe, read, think, speak with other people
trying out new ways of visualizations
Meeting with the client > research about the theme (internet, books), look for inspiration, gathering ideas for the design > sketching > design the product > presentation > being satisfied.
Computer, lots of books, paper, sketchbooks, pens, graphic tablet – all arranged in a grid.
The designer understands the client and the briefing, has a wide range of knowledge, know all basics about typography, printing and technical tools. She/he is creative and has a lot of ideas.
relationship with designer
Good. Friends of mine work as communication designers.
getting along with salary
It is difficult to cope.
designer’s monthly salary
1.000 – 1.500 €
They know what they want and are well prepared, punctual, trusting and resistant to advices!
I like that they are creative, spontaneous, flexible, helpful and in a sort crazy.
