Expanding Your Design Empire: 7 Other Careers that Benefit from Design Knowledge

Web design is a field that, while saturated, is very likely to keep expanding in the years to come. More businesses are moving online, more major companies and brands are embracing the internet as a business tool, and far more individuals are adapting their one-person businesses to incorporate the internet into their strategy.

Despite this ongoing growth in demand, the never-ending competition in the web design world can make it difficult to create a highly profitable business. Sure, thousands of designers carve out a comfortable business online, but the level of designers that are truly excelling in business is quite slim. There’s a big difference between a lifestyle business and an ultra-valuable one, and many designers who are currently enjoying a comfortable business want to push their business up to the next level.

These seven careers are best when combined with design knowledge. For any web designer that’s looking to expand their business, incorporate new avenues into their career, or merely experiment with something new, they could be the best places to start. From online side-businesses to long-term offline career options, these seven career choices can go hand-in-hand with an online design business.

Publishing

Publishing
The publishing world is in a bizarre state. Book sales are steady and constant, yet they’re still nowhere near the huge sales that mainstream films and albums achieve. However, with new publishing platforms like the Amazon Kindle – and soon the Apple iPad – publishing companies are looking at new ways to get their content online, available, and in the hands of potential customers.

This is where design is going to come in. When books are viewed as more than just printed media, but as a full-featured digital product, the value of design is going to be raised significantly. Rather than focusing on the same old website design projects, a number of designers would be best off predicting trends in publishing and setting themselves up as digital book designers, cover artists, or even application programmers.

PR, Marketing, and Offline Promotions

PR, Marketing, and Offline Promotions
Online and offline PR requires a direct understanding of what people do. Offline PR experts spend years predicting how their media contacts will react to a certain call, how to approach new clients, and how to secure deals and generate exposure for the people that they work with. These skills might seem entirely foreign to designers accustomed to working on a per-project basis, but in reality they’re not all that unusual.

Whenever you take on a web design project, you’re negotiating with clients and learning exactly what’s required. If you’ve worked with high profile clients before, you’ve even built up some knowledge of how media heavyweights operate. The ability to design and create marketing materials gives you a real advantage – the ability to baseline and start an online PR side business inexpensively.

Animation

Animation
Today, almost all animation is digital. While Pixar-style operations are outside the financial bounds of most marketers, almost all other digital animation is inexpensive and relatively easy to grow accustomed to, especially when you already have a level of design skill. While major animation can take millions of dollars in startup capital and years of experience, a wide range of online businesses are seeking basic animators for videos and company marketing materials. As a side-business opportunity, online animation is backed by a lot of growth potential.

Online Marketing

Online Marketing
Speaking of growth potential, few online businesses have more potential to scale massively than online marketing operations. From affiliate products to Adsense websites, the world of online marketing is wide, miles-high, and packed with potential to turn a valueless website into a powerful advertising resource.

While most designers focus exclusively on delivering websites for clients, few dedicate their time to their own online projects. A client project might bring in one-off income and stability, but it rarely brings in long-term recurring income. Most web designers have more than enough knowledge to put together a powerful CPA-powered website, which can bring in long-term income far beyond that of any short-term project.

Application Programming

Application Programming
Applications have changed dramatically in the last ten years, and they’re still changing. Ten years ago, you’d fire up Microsoft Word to take care of any documents, Powerpoint to cover your presentations, and Excel to graph out how much you’d bill your clients.

Now, you can write your documents in Google Docs, create presentations in Prezi, and deliver invoices online through Billings or Freshbooks. Rather than being local and limited, applications are online, open, and very user-friendly.

This might seem like a curse for any designer, but it’s really an opportunity. Big business used to be focused around offline applications, and now it’s focused very precisely on online applications. Rather than focusing exclusively on websites, marketing materials, and visual projects for clients, it could be worth focusing on online application design.

Direct Sales

Direct Sales
As Alec Baldwin so eloquently put it in Glengarry Glen Ross, sales is all about one thing – getting people to “sign on the line that is dotted.” While designers operate on a slightly different level and with a slightly different skill-set, we’re also salespeople in a way. We approach clients, deal with their needs and requirements, and ultimately push them towards a project that’s mutually beneficial.

We’re also salespeople in another way. When hired to create a commercial website, we’re expected to ensure that it’s user-friendly, commercially viable, and highly optimized as a sales and organizing tool. Google Analytics exists for a reason – to help us get the most from our commercial websites. In many ways, most web designers already have the mindset, knowledge, and application required to succeed in direct sales.

Webmaster – Own Projects

Webmaster - Own Projects
It’s never advantageous to run a business that depends on other people for revenue and success. While service businesses are an effective way to generate income, they’re also quite limiting. Almost all web designers have the skills required to create and control their own websites, yet very few put the time into creating their own portfolio of monetized websites.

Whenever you’re faced with a client drought and a shortage of direct work, don’t look at it as a lack of opportunity. The most successful web designers aren’t just designers – they’re webmasters too. A lack of short-term clients or ongoing work is really an opportunity to expand your design skills into different areas, primarily your own online properties. Dedicate some out-of-work time to creating your own websites, and in a year or two you could have some high-earning online properties of your own.

Trends Used In Comedy Movie Posters From 1915 to 2010

Movie posters are a fantastic source of inspiration for artists and designers of all kinds. Different genres of film tend to have different techniques and trends – sci-fi posters tend to be dark, gloomy and atmospheric for example, whereas comedy posters (as showcased in this article) are quite minimal (especially posters designed in the more modern day such as the 90’s and 2000’s).

This compilation showcases a total of nintey-nine comedy posters, that’s one poster per year going all the way back to 1915. Throughout the decades and years we can see how movie poster design has developed from full-on painted works of art to incredible rendered posters and digitally textured photographs.

We ask for one thing in return for showcasing this awesome collection of posters: What are your favorite posters showcased in the article, and why? Be sure to let us know in the comments section at the bottom of the post!

The 1910’s

An obvious trend used in the very early 1900’s were borders. From oddly shaped yellow borders in ‘Hearts and Planets’ to green triangle patterned borders used in ‘His Picture in the Papers’. It was clear a lot of effort went into these early movie posters.

1915 – Hearts and Planets

Comedy Poster

1916 – His Picture in the Papers

Comedy Poster

1917 – The Man from the Painted Post

Comedy Poster

1918 – Mickey

Comedy Poster

1919 – Daddy Long Legs

Comedy Poster

The 1920’s

In the posters showcased below for the 1920’s we see a bit of everything, from minimalisticism in ‘Woman-Proof’ and ‘The Cohens and the Kellys’, monochromatic images in ‘Along Came Ruth’, to basic comic drawings in ‘So This Is College’.

1920 – The Texan

Comedy Poster

1921 – Alf’s Button

1927 – Casey at the Bat

Comedy Poster

1928 – The Fleets In

Comedy Poster

1929 – So this is College

Comedy Poster

The 1930’s

Although typography strokes were used prior to the 1930’s, I feel they were taken to the next level in this decade. Strokes were used to make text appear three-dimensional in movie posters such as ‘Check and Double Check’ and ‘The Devil is a Sissy’.

1930 – Check and Double Check

Comedy Poster

1931 – City Lights

Comedy Poster

1932 – Dance Team

Comedy Poster

1933 – Duck Soup

Comedy Poster

1934 – Gay Love

Comedy Poster

1935 – Top Hat

1936 – The Devil is a Sissy

Comedy Poster

1937 – Wild and Woolly

Comedy Poster

1938 – Bringing Up Baby

Comedy Poster

1939 – At The Circus

Comedy Poster

The 1940’s

The 1940’s seems to be the year when comedy movie posters actually had a fun and energetic feel to them. Oversized heads were used in the poster ‘A Night in Casablanca’ and there are smiles all round.

1940 – A Chump at Oxford

Comedy Poster

1941 – Mr. Bug goes to Town

Comedy Poster

1942 – Tortilla Flat

Comedy Poster

1943 – Girl Crazy

Comedy Poster

1944 – Cover Girl

Comedy Poster

1945 – The Charlie Chaplin Cavalcade

1946 – A Night in Casablanca

Comedy Poster

1947 – The Egg and I

Comedy Poster

1948 – The Boy with Green Hair

Comedy Poster

1949 – I was a Male Bride

Comedy Poster

The 1950’s

Experimental compositions started to come into play in the 50’s. Prior to the 50’s, most posters were made up from individual images and some typography, whereas in the 50’s posters are composed using several different images – a huge step in the movie poster world, giving it’s viewers more of a feel for the movie.

1950 – Key to the City

Comedy Poster

1951 – Let’s Make It Legal

Comedy Poster

1952 – Love is Better Than Ever

Comedy Poster

1953 – Stalag 17

Comedy Poster

1954 – Sabrina

Comedy Poster

1955 – The Trouble With Harry

Comedy Poster

1956 – Around the World in 80 Days

Comedy Poster

1957 – Funny Face

Comedy Poster

1958 – Damn Yankees

Comedy Poster

1959 – Some Like It Hot

Comedy Poster

The 1960’s

As color was becoming easier to process, more bright and vivid color schemes were being used in movie posters of the 60’s. Bright blues, pinks and oranges were used in ‘Once More, With Feeling!’ as well as what looks like real developed photographs instead of illustrated paintings.

1960 – Once More, With Feeling!

Comedy Poster

1961 – One, Two, Three

Comedy Poster

1962 – The Road to Hong Kong

Comedy Poster

1963 – Sunday in New York

Comedy Poster

1964 – Never Put it in Writing

Comedy Poster

1965 – The Art of Love

Comedy Poster

1966 – Alfie

Comedy Poster

1967 – Thoroughly Modern Millie

Comedy Poster

1968 – Salt and Pepper

Comedy Poster

1969 – Some Kind of a Nut

Comedy Poster

The 1970’s

The 70’s saw hand-drawn sketches being merged with photographic portraits in Walt Disneys ‘Boatniks’, early use of grid-based design in ‘Trafic’, and simple two-color color schemes such as that used in the ‘Outrageous!’ movie poster.

1970 – Boatniks

Comedy Poster

1971 – Guess What!?!

Comedy Poster

1972 – Trafic

Comedy Poster

1973 – Bummer!

Comedy Poster

1974 – The Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat

Comedy Poster

1975 – Six Pack Annie

Comedy Poster

1976 – The Shaggy D.A.

Comedy Poster

1977 – Outrageous!

Comedy Poster

1978 – Malibu Beach

Comedy Poster

1979 – The Jerk

Comedy Poster

The 1980’s

Minimalism became a big trend in movie poster design in the 80’s that posters such as ‘They All Laughed’, ‘Fast Times’, ‘Private School’ and ‘Bad Medicine’ all followed. Grid-based design continued to grow, with more and more elements in the posters being aligned to one another to create an easy composition for the eyes to scan.

1980 – Middle Age Crazy

Comedy Poster

1981 – They All Laughed

Comedy Poster

1982 – Fast Times

Comedy Poster

1983 – Private School

Comedy Poster

1984 – Where The Boys Are ‘84

Comedy Poster

1985 – Bad Medicine

Comedy Poster

1986 – Off Beat

Comedy Poster

1987 – Nice Girls Don’t Explode

Comedy Poster

1988 – Twins

Comedy Poster

1989 – Loverboy

Comedy Poster

The 1990’s

We don’t see many more trends in the early or mid 90’s, only improvements on the trends and techniques that were already in place.

Minimalism was still a huge factor of movie poster design, as well as grid-design. However, the posters do look much more adventurous, using different techniques to attract the viewers attention. In 1995 ‘Toy Story’ was released, along with it came several superb animated film posters using handfuls of technology. ‘American Pie’ broke the rule of the grid, purposely tilting the grid sideways to create a unique look.

1990 – Men at Work

Comedy Poster

1991 – Only the Lonely

Comedy Poster

1992 – Home Alone

Comedy Poster

1993 – The Sandlot

Comedy Poster

1994 – Dreisam

Comedy Poster

1995 – Toy Story

Comedy Poster

1996 – Happy Gilmore

Comedy Poster

1997 – Flubber

Comedy Poster

1998 – Antz

Comedy Poster

1999 – American Pie

Comedy Poster

The 2000’s

The future is here and computer software is getting more and more powerful – I’m sure most of you will recognize most of these posters, meaning they did there job correctly and stuck in your mind for all these years. We see some more great animated posters from ‘Monsters, Inc.’, ‘Surf’s Up’ and ‘Cloudy with a chance of Meat Balls’.

2000 – Scary Movie

Comedy Poster

2001 – Monters, Inc.

Comedy Poster

2002 – Jackass: The Movie

2003 – Bruce Almighty

2004 – Dodgeball

2008 – Bedtime Stories
