ALTERNATIVE CAREERS

This project started off with me wondering what on earth I would be doing If I hadn’t chosen Graphic Design.. I came to the conclusion that I would be a tunnel expert. That’s right a tunnel expert. Then I decided that spending all day looking at tunnels wasn’t really that interesting. So after some more thought I decided I would love to be a nail artist working full time in a nail salon painting peoples nails. After all that I was also curious about what other designers would choose as their alternative career..

I would be a full time Artist. JOE GILMORE

If I wasn’t a graphic designer I would like to be an Astronaut. I’ve always been fascinated by space/sci-fi, and to go to another world would be mind-blowing. MICHAEL C PLACE

If I’m honest I would quite like to be a bin man, I think it would great.. Seriously when I was younger I actually wanted to be a bin man. PHIL MCDONALD

I would probably be a builder, or work with woodwork. Something that is tangible and lasts, so I can look back in ten years time and think ‘I made that’. ANDY LODGE

That’s easy. I’d run a butcher’s shop. People would come in and ask for “half a pound of chipolatas for tonight’s tea”. And though I’d have run out; it’d be ok. As I’d have held back 4 pork chops and they’d go away more than happy. ALEX ATKINSON

Always wanted to be an actor! Or a chef. Though had it not have been for my wife, I’d still be working for Motorworld, no doubt! MARTIN FARRAR- SMITH

I’m musical (I play guitar, piano and sing a little) and often make up songs to amuse my kids, I also visit schools doing illustration workshops, so I may combine the two and be a children’s entertainer using music as my medium. MARK HOWE

I would work in building demolition. MR BINGO

Thats easy, I’d be a doctor. Or a surgeon. JOHN WATTERS

I think I would probably be a dog walker, or dog stylist.. something to do with dogs no doubt. AMBER SMITH

leeds-art.ac.uk

Ha. A nice job actually. I’d work with animals. Dog walker. Not very adventurous but could be extended to Lion tamer or dolphin trainer. MATT TOMLIN

If I would not have become a graphic designer, I’d say I’d be either a film maker developing documentary films, or a full time father taking care of two babies. But I’m rather happy that I chose graphic design. STEFAN SAGMEISTER

Hmmm tough question, I’d probably still be working within a creative industry, possibly as a furniture designer. JONATHAN RAGG

When I get grumpy about design I fantasise about being a gardener. LEE GOATER

In an alternative universe I am now happily employed as a Geography teacher in a comprehensive school somewhere in the North of England. I’ve still got an interest in Geography, whenever I travel I’m always on the look out for a U shaped valley or evidence of glacial erosion. ANTHONY BURRILL

If I weren’t a Graphic Designer I would be homeless. I don’t really know how to do anything else, and I wouldn’t much want to. CRAIG OLDHAM

I think i’d probably be a librarian or work in a museum! ROBBIE PORTER

I always wanted to work in special effects for films... model making - stuff like that. Came from watching a Star Wars documentary when I was about 13. MARK DIGGINS

Does it have to be a real job? Because I would probably be on a boat fishing. Actually.. I would be a professional scuba diver. I do have a life outside of graphic design. FRED BATES

leeds-art.ac.uk

My massively boring (but genuine) answer is I’d probably be a product designer or an architect. Although, if you are still counting those as ‘designer’ and essentially the question is ‘what if I wasn’t a designer’ then, probably... Scriptwriter / Screenplay writer. STEPHEN WOOWAT

Rally Driver. EUAN WEBSTER

work-design.co.uk

I’d like to think I’d be a tattoo artist doing unique and bespoke pieces not like the generic stuff that every other tattooist on the planet seems to churn out! Customer: ‘Can I have a tribal band and a rose please?’ Myself: ‘You can have a big fuck off if you like - how does that sound?!’ SI SCOTT

What could be better than spending my time as a professional nail artist working full time in a salon. BALJEET KAUR SAMRA
