Karen’s Answer

Hi Alex, it all depends on whether you are working for yourself as a freelancer and can set your own hours and deadlines, or if you are working for an in-house design studio and/or agency. Most design work is very deadline driven so it's often expected that you do whatever is needed to hit the deadline you've committed to, especially for an in-house or agency designer. In the past I was the head of an in-house design team and we worked a minimum of 40 hours/week, but usually it would be anywhere from 45-60 depending on projects. Most designers are working on several design projects at a time with varying deadlines. Personally, if I knew someone on my team had to pull long hours to hit a deadline, I would try to make sure they left early a few days in a row to get some personal time back and balance it out since our team was salaried and didn't earn over-time pay. When interviewing with a company, it's important to know what you are looking for schedule-wise and how that company's dept. handles things like deadlines, hours, etc. to make sure you are in alignment on expectations and work/life balance. Hope this helps!

Matias’s Answer

There's no unique answer to that question.
Working as a graphic designer is not different than any other career.
It will depend on the type of job , the amount of clients you have if you don't work as a fulltime employee , the amount of time you want to work, and how much time you leave for your personal life.
Thank you comment icon Hi Matias, this is a good general answer but can you give any sort of estimate of how many hours a graphic designer works in a given week? That would make your answer more helpful Gurpreet Lally, Admin
Thank you comment icon I used to work 8 hours a day as a designer Matias Mendiondo
