Graphic design is an essential part of any design team, and the role can be rewarding if you're prepared to put in the work; graphic designers are some of the most in-demand professionals out there.
From studying design briefs and determining requirements, scheduling projects and defining budget, graphic designers also conceptualise visuals based on requirements, preparing rough drafts and presenting ideas. In addition, graphic designers usually develop illustrations, logos and other designs. But a core part of most graphic design which they teach in University is branding and packaging.
On the Cult Creative app there are hundreds of graphic designers who have already signed up and are part of the community. Here, we feature just some of the graphic designers who have proven that branding and packaging is their forte.
Colourful Graphics And Bright Packaging: Fitrie Roslan
Fitrie Roslan describes himself as a full time graphic designer by day and a freelance illustrator by night who creates cute things and we couldn't agree more! He is very much inspired by the english garden and cottage core aesthetics, which sets him apart from most graphic designers. Fitrie has had the opportunity of working with well-known brands like Nita Cosmetics, Withsoof and Alluskin.
When he's not designing adorable packaging for brands, Fitrie has an online store called Fitrie Art where he personally designs and sells stickers on Shopee.
