Graphic designer Mark Boulton has had to overcome in the past couple of years.
“It’s been a real struggle,” he said.
“When I started at GQ, I was the only designer working in the office.
Now I have clients who need to work with me to create design-driven websites.”
So, what does he do to make it work?
“I go back to design school, and work on some of the design books I’ve read and practice my skills on different clients,” he told The Globe and Mail.
He’s also become more comfortable working with clients with limited resources.
“You can’t really make things as big as you’d like unless you have the ability to afford it,” he says.
“So, I think you need to be able to afford the time and money to get things done.”
But, as a graphic designer, he says that’s not always possible.
“I’m always looking to innovate.
I think the way I think is very different from the way most designers think,” he explained.
“And I think it’s important to be flexible, but it’s also important to keep things simple.”
