Even in a recession, the number of freelance graphic design jobs continues to grow
Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) January 26, 2009
A group of Internet-based graphic designers has launched GraphicDesignFreelanceJobs.com (http://www.graphicdesignfreelancejobs.com), a new website to help graphic designers find their next paying freelance graphic design jobs. GraphicDesignFreelanceJobs.com gives freelancers free access to hundreds of current freelance graphic design jobs.
Graphic designers can find freelance jobs for many popular and niche-focused design disciplines, such as graphic design, logo design, banner design, website design, and print design. The site's easy-navigation lets graphic designers click on a specific design discipline to find the best-matched design job; otherwise, users can use the site's search tool to find specific freelance jobs by keyword or job type.
GraphicDesignFreelanceJobs.com fulfills a demand to review and list freelance graphic design jobs from a variety of online job boards, as well as organize job listings in a way that saves graphic designers precious time researching jobs that closely match their skill-set.
Full-time self-employed freelance graphic designers make up about 25 percent of the entire graphic design industry, but an even larger non-reported percent includes "hobbyists" and recently laid-off creative arts people who freelance as graphic designers in their spare time to earn extra cash.
Brian Scott, the site's founder, said, "The majority of users who use our site include not only full-time freelance graphic designers, but also part-timers and aspiring graphic designers who seek short-term projects for extra cash or to build their portfolio."
GraphicDesignFreelanceJobs.com lists paid graphic design jobs ranging from quick "one-day" assignments to in-depth "month-long" projects, paying from $100 to $3,000 per project -- and much more. On average, the web site lists between 75 and 150 new freelance graphic design jobs each day.
Freelancing as a graphic designer is a fast growing niche occupation on the Internet today, only second to freelance writing. "Even in a recession, the number of freelance graphic design jobs continues to grow," said Scott, who attributes the steady growth to downsized companies outsourcing more projects.
The US Department of Labor and the Occupational Outlook Handbook predicts graphic design jobs to grow by 10 percent this year as demand for graphic design continues to increase from advertisers, publishers, and computer design firms. Scott predicts that online freelance jobs for graphic designers will grow by a much larger percent as new technology -- video games, mobile applications, cell phones, and online interactive media -- thirsts for new graphic design talent from across the globe.
GraphicDesignFreelanceJobs.com is part of a network of "how to freelance" websites -- all run and maintained by working freelancers -- which include Graphic Design Bids, Freelance Photography Jobs, and Freelance Portfolios.
