Design School:

Animation designers are finding themselves creating projects for a variety of new programs and gadgets. From cell phones and PDAs to computers and gaming systems, a degree in animation design is an all-access pass to hi-tech pursuits.

The Profession
The mark of an exciting profession is that it's never standing still. And so it goes with animation design. According to LogoLounge, the latest and hottest 3-D logos are designed to be in motion, and in doing so, are breaking the bounds of the traditional. It seems as though the pace in the animation design industry is constantly quickening. A host of new gadgets, the MP3 player and GPS navigation device to name a couple, are employing advanced animation concepts to deliver information. And the companies behind these devices need animation and design professionals to keep a ravenous commercial appetite properly fed.

The Program
Surprisingly enough, many graphic animators and computer design pros didn't start out with a background in technology. While the ideal credential is a four-year degree in animation, graphic design, et al, training in art, psychology, or even liberal arts is not uncommon. The key is to find an accredited program to add the technological component to your core studies. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the National Association of Schools of Art and Design accredits many institutions with programs in art and design. 

The Future
Perhaps the most inviting part of a career in animation design is the sheer number of employment opportunities that lie ahead of the prepared candidate. The typical environments for designers to include companies, private practices or firms, contract positions, and self-employment. Possible job titles for graduates include multimedia artist, creative director, advertising executive, and lead animator.
