Employment of arts and design occupations is projected to grow 2 percent from 2021 to 2031, slower than average for all occupations, resulting in about 20,500 new jobs. Including replacing workers leaving the field, about 94,500 openings will occur each year. Workers will be needed to meet the demand for animation and visual effects in video games, movies, television, and on smartphones, as well as to help create visually appealing and effective layouts of websites and other media platforms.

The median annual wage for art and design occupations was $48,220 in May 2021, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $45,760.
