Design Career: 6 of the Highest Paid Jobs

Essence of the profession

Will the packaging be convenient? How much space does it take in a container when transporting from another part of the world? Is it possible to save by reducing its size? Will it get wet in the rain? What is it like to put the goods into it, get it, clean it again? How expensive, environmentally friendly and technological should the material be? Is it attractive? Will it be an innovative polymer or cardboard without an image and inscriptions? Is it difficult to make packaging from such material? How much time and money will it take? These and other questions, the designer must ask. The tasks of specialists can be completely different, but the designers have one thing in common: an integrated approach to work. The designer answers a million questions, makes a lot of decisions, provides for everything. He/she will not make a good project, if the focus is only on beauty.
