For over 50 years, The Graphic Artists Guild has created and curated a vast amount of resources that help students and other creatives excel with their creative talents.
GuildCast is a podcast created and curated for graphic artists and creatives based on the three pillars of the Graphic Artists Guild: Advocacy, Community, and Business Resources. We hear from Guild members, friends, partners, and more on topics affecting creative professionals worldwide.
The Guild News blog is an extensive library of articles and information covering the latest news in the creative world. Topics include advocacy alerts, best business practices, scams targeting creatives, artist spotlights, and other information of value for those in the creative industry.
The Graphic Artists Guild Handbook: Pricing & Ethical Guidelines is the creative industry bible. It helps artists navigate pricing, collecting payment, protecting their work, advice for growing a freelance business, tips on negotiating, pricing services accurately, and creating contracts.
In its professional monthly webinar series, the Graphic Artists Guild offers continuing education with real-world advice from graphic design pros to help other creatives go to the next level in their careers. The webinars provide a variety of topics, ranging from best business practices to technical skills.
The Handbook is an indispensable resource for people who create graphic art and those who buy it. As the graphic art marketplace continues to evolve to meet the needs of both digital and print media and as clients struggle with shrinking budgets in the current economy, the demand for up-to-date information on business, ethical, and legal issues is greater than ever.
We welcome suggestions and comments from educators. The Guild is currently exploring ways to structure institutional memberships for schools.
