Design deals with the art and aesthetics of making things attractive to others. Many companies employ designers in order to make their product and brand beautiful and to put their best face forward to consumers. Because of this a designer can work in almost any industry, but almost all of them specialize in a specific area. A few major areas a designer might specialize in include:

To get started in design, learn the tools of the design trade you want to work in. For graphic design, for example, learn how to use graphic design programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. You also need a strong portfolio and for many positions a degree in design, art, or a related field.
