Design consist of many different sub-professions such as architect, illustrator, graphic designer, engineer, production designer, drafter, fashion designer, civil engineer, animator and many more. As a designer, you are responsible for the design of a certain project that you will be managing - inhouse if you are working for a company, and external if you are an independent contractor. The profession of a designer also means that you will work closely with a lot of people in the company you are working for, so you will build up your network of colleagues. There are many design firms in the Netherlands and in the United Kingdom, both large and small, so there is enough to choose from as a graduate.
