Graphic design is a great job for those who desire flexibility and a work-from-anywhere kind of career. Yet, even still, certain cities might actually offer better opportunities than others.
This is especially true when you start to look at the quality of life issues like cost-of-living or even the ability to find a job. Traditionally popular places like New York and Los Angeles are full of graphic design jobs but the cost of living can keep budgets pretty tight.
That’s where the team from moveBuddha comes to the rescue. Their data researchers have dug through the data to highlight cites across the United States that are bursting with graphic design opportunities and even those that aren’t so hot. Their findings are smartly laid out in a collection of snazzy infographics. Fitting, considering the topic. Even better, they’ve broken down the top cities by size, job opportunity, hourly wages, and spending power of $100 (this one’s our favorite, how much you have to work to actually earn $100.) This means you can find the perfect city for you according to your personal preferences!
As the world embraces digital existence and the online competition becomes fiercer than ever, graphic designers have more opportunities, and in unexpected locales. Click here to see where are America’s Best (and Worst) Cities for Graphic Designers.
