Although more and more organisations are recognising the
importance of good design, Britain has the largest number
of graphic design higher education courses in Europe and this
means that entry to the profession is competitive. However,
there are more openings in graphic design than in any other
area of design - in advertising agencies, design studios,
in-house company departments and consultancies as well as
in the freelance sector.
