6 Job Description of a Layout Artist
A layout artist is a graphic design professional responsible for the structure and layout of elements in printed media, such as magazines, brochures, posters and fliers. People in entry-level positions of this nature are sometimes called production artists or paste-up artists. Responsibilities Layout artists assess visual aspects, such as typeface, color, position and formatting. They ensure that the text and images are appropriate and visually appealing. Education and Training Working as a layout artist requires a knowledge of design theory and the ability to use graphics software and technology. Graphic communications programs at design schools, colleges and universities provide formal training in these subjects. Technical Skills The majority of layout work is now done using graphic design software, including programs for layout and image editing. In certain situations, layout artists may fall back on older methods, such as cutting, pasting, taping or sketching by hand.

Layout artists often find employment in publishing, public relations, journalism, advertising and manufacturing companies.
