Multimedia designers wear many hats as they combine video, animation, artwork and even audio into their work. They are well known as new media designers use their technical skills to produce a range of creative works such as viral videos, movies, attractive commercials and even presentations.
If you wanted to be a multimedia designer who dabbles in a little bit of everything, you would most likely work for companies that require multi-skilled designers. This includes advertising agencies, digital agencies and brands who want to promote their products and services.
To cater to their needs, you will need to have advanced knowledge of a range of design software such as Adobe Creative Suite (e.g. Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere Pro) and Apple Final Cut Pro. You may also need to be able to code in HTML and CSS.
As a multimedia designer, you will be required to create a variety of multimedia products. Some of your day-to-day tasks may include creating engaging graphics for both online and print, such as websites, social media, product packaging, buntings and posters. Apart from that, developing videos, including animation and motion graphics, for websites and social media are also part of job tasks.
Multimedia designers also work with other specialists (e.g. copywriters, software programmers, marketing executives) to conceptualise and create multimedia products.
