As a Graphic Designer you will be required to help people and companies with things such as websites, designing of graphics, logos, templates etc that make a business known by a certain logo.
If you have been lucky enough to get an interview for this role then you will need to have some experience in this area by maybe doing a graphic design degree course or associated course and then gaining some work experience.
Before attending an interview for a Graphic Design role you need to do your research into the company and it may be an idea to take with you some of your own work or links to your work that your interviewer can have a look at and see what type of work you have done previously.
When conducting your research, ensure that you are familiar with what they currently do and depending on the nature of the role whether you will be seeing clients and providing advice and guidance. The interviewer will be looking to see how creative you are and what ideas and skills you can bring to the business.
Once you are happy where the interview is being held and what aspects of the job role you can happily do and what you need some more work on then it is time to think of some questions that you can ask your interviewer at the end of the interview.
Graphic Designer Interview Questions
Some of the questions they may ask you could be:
- Have you had experience of designing POS (point of sale)?
- How much experience of Adobe and Indesign have you had?
- Can you tell me about a particular catalogue that you have done for a company and how much involvement you have had in it?
- Could you give an example of designers?
Depending on the role itself will depend on the variety of questions but you will need to show your interviewer the skills that you have along with how creative you are.
Don’t forget that the interview may not be all about technical so be prepared for the most asked interview questions too:
- Tell me about yourself.
