Hello, Im an interior designer so i'm not exactly sure how the work day will go for a graphic designer but i am thinking it'll probably be the same. Depending on where you work whether its for yourself or for a firm and the firm that you're at.. I've worked at firms where everyone worked, chatted hung out, work... deadlines. work.. fun. work. The firms today are pretty relaxed as far as keeping you entertained, but don't let that fool you. everyone at the firm always gets their work done. Deadlines! you might have to stay at a firm all night to get something ready for a client the next day. I wouldn't let the work day bother you in making your choice tho. I would select what I like and am good at.
