Required Skills

A range of relevant postgraduate programmes are also available in many higher education institutions. You will need work experience and a portfolio of work to show employers. This can be obtained through internships and holiday work. Employers also expect a good knowledge of design software, such as Quark Xpress, InDesign or Illustrator, plus photo-editing software such as PhotoShop.
