Working in arts, craft and design with Level 4 and upwards qualifications such as a degree or HND
With an art, craft or design-related degree or similar qualification and a portfolio of your work, you could find work in a design studio or craft workshop.
While a degree in a relevant subject will help, experience is important too. You might need to work for free or on a low salary to gain experience. If you want to set up your own studio or workshop and sell your work, you will need to think about developing your business skills.
I design the look of packaging and all marketing materials. This includes anything that's printed, for example, logos, brochures and exhibition panels.
