The graphic design and sign manufacturing industry is one of the largest manufacturing industries in Australia. Signage companies manufacture a diverse range of products using many different technologies. Signage products are everywhere and include vehicle wraps, illuminated signs, engraving, 3-Dimensional signs, pylon signs, advertising billboards and window graphics. 

The industry needs people with practical skills to manage and control the Sign Manufacturing process where hands-on skills and a certain amount of creativity merge as one. People with similar abilities are needed to manufacture and install the finished Signage product. The sign industry uses computers for most of the manufacturing and design process so for people with some computer literacy and strong creative skills there are careers in designing signage and preparing them for manufacture.

Whether you are creative, practical or technology focussed you will find the graphic design and sign manufacturing industry exciting and dynamic.
