This week’s letter is G. If you missed last week’s Friday Feature, take a look at Farrier.
Graphic designers can be involved in many areas, but it is possible to focus on the niche area of horses. Often graphic designers have undertaken some form of a tertiary course to gain computer skills in particular programs. If you happen to be handy with a camera, this can be of benefit too – particularly for designing equine related graphics!
An equine graphic designer should be familiar with:
- what makes a good horse photo
- rules and regulations for different equine breeds that could impact on appropriate graphics
- creating images for banners, website, brochures and business cards
They may also be able to set up a business from home, but be ready to travel to clients. To hear from an equine graphic designer, take a look at Profile On: Susan Davis.
