Entering this field typically requires post-secondary education. A bachelor’s degree in an area such as interior design, three-dimensional design, or exhibition design is usually satisfactory. Marketing and communications classes can also be helpful, especially for interactions with clients, or for those who seek to become lead designers within their company. Business administration is also an option to pursue for designers who would like to open their own design firm. All of these areas can be studied at most accredited four-year universities as well as specialized art schools found all over the world. Candidates with a strong art or design background and a solid portfolio can also enter this field provided that they have experience working with others and with clients.
