About

We offer helpful articles appropriate for anyone in the design field – if you are just starting out as a graphic designer, newly forced into a freelance situation or changing careers to join the visual communication work force.

We’ve developed survival stories and advice from people who have actthe-creaux-er-designersually been where you are. These survivors will give you the tools, tips and tricks for every area of your design business. Article topics can be seen here.

Through the Designer’s Survival Guide, we hope to inspire and infuse you with ideas and collective knowledge from our group that will help to further your career by developing winning, visual communication strategies and graphics that will ultimately lead to more jobs and better financial outcomes.

So, dive right in and don’t forget to contribute your thoughts and network with us at the DSG Forum so that we can all benefit from this synergistic relationship.
