Graphic Designer

Sitting at the client’s brief, noticing that the design that you’re about to create is dull and lacks authenticity. But if that is what the client needs … you have to set aside your ambitions and follow the instructions. Here is how to Make Money as Graphic Designer.

If you want to show your creative side, learn new techniques, and create a portfolio, always following instructions doesn’t help. It is not offering you a lot of freedom and room for experimentation.

The good news is that in order to make money as a graphic designer you don’t necessarily have to follow the vision of someone else. There are actually plenty of passive income opportunities that would allow you to design what you want, the way you want it.

Let’s look at each of these ideas and why you should try at least one of them to earn money:

Sell digital products

  1. Graphic Novels and Comics-

Comic drawing is a billion-dollar industry. It allows us to assume safely that people are interested in this form of art, and more importantly, still willing to pay for it.
By selling digital comics online, you will be given the opportunity to get a piece of market share. What’s also important is that selling comics as digital products will let you avoid the challenges traditional publishers face: the need to cover physical stores costs of physical stores or convince people to pay for shipping when they order online.

  1. Printable Coloring books-

Designing coloring books will show your design skills in full glory.
The adult coloring books trend surprised the world in 2015 when they sold over 12 million books.
Adults and children alike also love coloring but people now tend to purchase from small self-publishers instead of purchasing from traditional publishers. Their sales numbers aren’t always correctly reported, but it’s known that as much as 60 percent of hobby books today are sold by indie self-publisher.

  1. Web elements and icons-

With close to 200 million active websites found online today, business owners are looking to stand out from the crowd. One way companies can show off their personality is through using unique web icons and custom illustrations that help them tell their story.
Custom illustrations are one of today’s major trends in Web design. Looking further we can assume that with the web becoming more saturated, the trend and demand for custom web illustrations will continue to grow.  So selling icons and illustration packs online will be a good way for graphic designers to earn digital art on the side.

  1. Fonts-

Fonts are a huge part of any website. Especially nowadays, when designers and programmers (and Google) pay extra attention to things like readability and usability of websites.

5. Instagram Highlights cover

Everybody knows that if you’re not on social media, you don’t exist. what people have also realized is that quality and eye-catching visuals are a must to attract and retain followers.
While Facebook is still the most popular social media platform, Instagram is a close rival. That said, Instagram is where visual appearance matters most, so if you’re wondering what platform you should concentrate on while you’re creating your visual pack — this is it.

Now that you’ve seen the many ways you can make money as a graphic designer, the next step is to pick the product or service and open your online store. Then,  Start earning with graphic design.
