I scanned over an article predicting the top five trends in digital media, and to my surprise, it was mainly about marketing and advertisement. Seeing most of digital media going into the field of business could be a good or bad thing for students and artists looking to grab a job in the “digital world”. Seeing as more and more companies are looking for advances in the websites and advertisements, this means that more spots will open for new thinkers and creators that can captivate a new audience. That’s what business leaders will most likely be looking for. Now, they can either take in experienced artists that can come up with something new and different, or they can take in someone who’s experienced with psychology and business: someone who knows how to target a customer. So reading that the top five trends for the topic of digital media itself being almost all business based can possibly pose a threat to those looking to be aspiring digital artists.
How do you see this new business trend going? Do you think it will lead to more digital artists getting jobs or loosing them?
