A career in the creative economy (the fifth largest economic industry in Colorado) is both challenging and rewarding. The industry is for strong people with vision, who want to use art to entertain, uplift, and communicate. You may find places to support the production, installation, and marketing of creative works.
Opportunities exist in the design fields including graphic design, web design, motion graphic design, industrial/product design, and environmental design. Many businesses rely on the services of designers as a critical part of their business.
If you can draw and tell stories, you may have a winning combination. Illustrators create art for picture books, comics, films, animations, and posters.
If you have a distinct artistic vision and a strong visual message, selling in galleries, painting portraits, or creating found-object installations for a museum may be an option for you. In addition, many jobs surround the installation and management of the creative works we find in galleries, museums, and shops.
