Top 10 most exciting graphic designers on Creativepool

Published by

The best graphic designers inhabit that space between the creative and the business-minded; the tangible and the intangible. It would be quite easy (and reductive) to simply take the phrase literally and describe a graphic designer simply as “somebody who uses graphics to design.” But the role has evolved so dramatically in the last few decades as technology has done likewise.

Graphic designers exist to bring form and function to ideas that might have been little more than vague concepts and they are the members of the creative team driving the literal vision of the company. 

Everything from the typography to the website design, logos, marketing and brand identity will be engineered chiefly by the graphic design team. So, it stands to reason that making sure you get the right designer (or designers) on board for your project is a pretty critical task. Thankfully, there are hundreds of incredible creatives on Creativepool ready to take on your graphic designer jobs right here. These are 10 of the very best for your consideration.
