How would you want to title yourself and why? I wikipedia'd it and well they were clumped together but my HR manager is telling me they have 2 different pay ranges. So please help!!
I like the sound of graphic designer.
designers pretty up stuff and artists do it from scratch.
Does this help?
In the end its ladies choice
imo, 'artists' make shit designers and vice versa. I'm generalising horrifically, obviously, but the substance remains true.
how about 'expensive'?
Even more choice:
Artistic Designer or Designing Artist
artist...sounds more like your an illustrator
graphic...are more general also its mostly used
graphic artist > sounds 70ish...
I personally prefer > visual designer, Ph.D
a graphic artist is good at spray painting vans and stuff like that
i consider myself a "Media Architect"
just keep depositing my checks.
designer + illustrator
visual designer isn't that bad doh. but i am sure your HR dept person don't have any salary range on that title. as its just an other name for graphic designer.
art director are suppose to be a, or two level up from graphic designer...even do many students use the work directly after grad.
the salary range are of-course higher there.
a lot of guys recently have been posting up their folios onto QBN asking for crits, and a their work seems to be more illustration based graphic design rather than typography/logo/web design.
i think id describe these guys as graphic artists
whereas people like myself who do typography/web/logo etc is more graphic design
regarding to the everyday joe/jane view, anything "attached to artist," gets paid less. choose designer, you'll make more money.
van spraypaint architect
around 2000 it was funny when everyone was calling themselves daft names for website designers.
remember the guys from Kerb had job names like "web monkey" on their business cards hehe.
