Finding graphic design Kent jobs can be tricky these days

Every week we get dozens of different emails from people interested in finding graphic design jobs across the United Kingdom. It certainly seems like supply for these roles is outstripping demand many times over - which is never good news for anyone searching for a job. Rather than just giving up hope though, you can take a look at this guide to helping you find graphic design in Kent jobs with the minimal fuss.

The first thing you need to remember about applying for any graphic design job is that it's all about the portfolio. Unlike in many other professions where your previous work experience or college qualifications will play a huge role in whether or not you are hired, when it comes to anything in the creative arts all your potential employer is concerned with is the end product.

You should always make sure that you have both a digital and physical copy of your portfolio. Try to vary them up a little too. It helps if you have your digital portfolio accessible online via your website, since mailing large files is often a bad idea when applying for work.

Once you have that sorted out you'll also need to demonstrate that you are familiar with the most commonly used programs in the industry. In the case of graphic design, this means Adobe Photoshop and Adobe InDesign for the most part. While there are other programs that are commonly used, if you can display proficiency in these two, you're on the right track.

There are plenty of different design houses in the Kent area, and we have included a few of them below in order to kick start your search for work;

  • Westgate Communications (westgatecomms.com)
  • Red Boad Design (redboatdesign.com)
  • Zap! Media (zapmedia.co.uk)
  • Red Red Design (redreddesign.co.uk)
  • Hypergroup (hypergroup.com)
