Multimedia Artists and Animators


The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that employment for multimedia artists and animators will grow by 4 percent through 2028 (or about as fast as the average for all careers). Demand for games, especially for use on mobile devices such as smartphones, continues to grow, but employment growth has slowed as more companies offshore creative jobs to foreign countries where workers can be paid lower salariers than those earned by artists and animators in the United States. Animators will also be needed in alternative areas such as scientific research and design services. Competition for jobs should be strong since many creative and technically savvy people want to work as artists and animators.
