In this Sector
For example, a building design is a guide to how a planned building will look when it is finished. Product designers on the other hand will take product ideas and develop them into genuine products, not just a design on paper but a full concept of how it will function and what purpose it will serve.
Whatever the field, designers will need skills relevant to the area they work in, drawing on artistic, scientific and technological knowledge in the design process.
There are many broad categories of design discipline. Some of the most significant are product design; fashion and textiles; structures and places; digital design; visual communications; TV and film, and strategic design.
Potential careers as a designer include sectors as diverse as fashion, automobile manufacturing or video games. The type of work undertaken will be very different in each. Digital design is now the dominant method, so computer literacy and an ability to learn new applications is important. This means skills you may be required to call on include computer design software, digital images, audio processing or data visualization.
