For example, a casual mobile game may appeal more to younger audiences looking for quick entertainment, while a complex role-playing game may attract avid gamers seeking immersive storytelling.
Another crucial component of game design is gameplay mechanics. These are the rules that govern how players interact with the game world. From simple puzzles to strategic decision-making processes, gameplay mechanics play a vital role in keeping players engaged and entertained.

The creative industries sector
The foundations of the University of Wolverhampton are built upon creative subjects – and from an original portfolio of creative arts, we now offer a wide range of subjects that can lead you into roles in the exciting and growing creative industries sector. Whether you’re interested in gaming and esports, fashion and photography, film and tv, architecture or publishing, our courses can help your career goals.
Careers in the creative industries can include a wide variety of businesses and organisations; from libraries, museums and art galleries; theatre, music, TV and film production; to software, IT and gaming.
Did you know? The creative sector now contributes over £111 billion to the UK economy. It’s one of the fastest growing within the UK – just think of the popularity of Minecraft and Fortnite ; films like Frozen and all its spin-off events; the rise of platforms like Netflix and Disney Plus.
Graduates of our creative courses enter a wide variety of roles, regionally, nationally and internationally. Find out some of their stories below. An appealing aspect of working in the creative industries is the opportunities for working abroad, or with a wide range of international partners.
Our links with industry
Placements and work experience are an integral part of many of our courses to help you hit the ground running in your career in the creative industries. Our annual degree shows provide experience in exhibiting your work, as well as a platform to showcase it to potential investors, sponsors and employers.
Careers in the Creative Industry

Game artists use software packages to create the visual elements of a game in either 3D or 2D for one or more platforms, such as mobile, PC, arcade or console.
Graphic Designer– £18,000 to £38,000
As a graphic designer, you'll create eye-catching visuals for a variety of products and activities, such as:
- books and magazines
After agreeing a brief with the client, creative director or account manager you'll develop appropriate creative ideas and concepts that meet the client's objectives.
The work demands creative flair, up-to-date knowledge of industry software and a professional approach to time, costs and deadlines.
Magazine journalist - £18,000 to £40,000
Journalists research and write news articles and features for a wide variety of publications, increasingly online as well as for traditional printed magazines.
The future of careers in the creative industry
One of the fastest growing sectors within the UK, this growth is forecast to increase
with £150 million of funding from the Creative Industries Sector Vision (CISV), which is prioritising support for the growth of micro-businesses. In February 2022, the government announced details of £50 million of investment for creative businesses across the UK from the CISV, including £21 million on three-year UK Global Screen Fund to promote UK films internationally and £8 million to help entrepreneurial start-up game developers to grow their businesses and create new games.
Wolverhampton and the region
The creative industries sector as a whole has been growing above the UK average since 2011 and is growing faster in the West Midlands than the rest of the UK. There are over 10,000 creative businesses active in the region. Creative industries are adding new posts at twice the rate of the rest of the economy, according to
the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport’s (DCMS) Sector Economic Estimates Employment report (2018), with an over two million jobs estimated in the sector, three-quarters outside London. The sector contributes over £4 billion to the regional economy and this is forecast to increase through a sector deal between government and the creative industries sector to unlock growth for creative businesses into future:
- places (funding leading creative clusters to compete globally)
- technologies and content (via research into augmented reality and virtual reality)
- creative skills (via a careers programme that will open up creative jobs to people of every background).
There is wide-ranging support at governmental level for the development of the sector, for example from the West Midlands Combined Authority. Schemes such as the West Midlands Creative Scale Up programme, are supporting screen, gaming, VR, AI, performing arts, marketing and events, PR and design businesses with ambitions to grow and ‘scale up’ through the £1.3 million two-year programme from the DCMS.

Your FAQs about pursuing a career in The Creative Industry.
What routes are available to get into a career in the creative industries?
Most jobs in the creative sector are taken by applicants who have studied a relevant degree. While a portfolio of creative work can be helpful, becoming a graduate is a more structured way to make yourself a desirable applicant – and a postgraduate qualification can increase your knowledge and understanding to even higher levels.
What qualifications do I need to work in the creative industries?
As previously mentioned, it isn’t entirely necessary to have a qualification to enter a creative career, but it can increase your chances of success. Courses such as the University of Wolverhampton’s BA Creative and Professional Writing and more can all equip you with the skills and experience you need for a successful and rewarding creative career.
Why should I work in the creative industries?
The satisfaction of earning your money through your passions is enormous. It may seem like a riskier choice than taking a “normal” job, but the rewards can be huge and the sector is growing. There is money to be made in creativity, and in a time when automation is becoming a factor in many industries, it’s less likely to impact creative roles for the time being, due to the innovation required being difficult to replace.
How much experience do I need to find a job in the creative industries?
Like many careers, the more experience you have the better equipped you’ll be to tackle a future role and the more desirable a candidate you will be.
Where can I find experience?
Companies from all areas of the creative sector may provide work experience for people willing to volunteer their time, but you will generally need to contact them directly rather than reply to an offer as they are unlikely to post notice of volunteer positions. If you study a course with the University of Wolverhampton, you will have access to our Careers, Enterprise and the Workplace teams who may be able to help you find experience.

15 high-paying jobs for creative people
You don't have to suffer for your art — at least not when it comes to salary. There are plenty of high-paying gigs that will reward your creativity to the tune of more than $59,000 a year.
CNBC Make It analyzed data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to identify 15 occupations focused on creating, designing, or remaking images, products, technology, and information that also come with paychecks as large as $92,000 a year — well above the median salary of $46,800 U.S workers earned in 2018, according to the BLS.
So if you want to be nicely compensated for your design talents, consider one of these 15 jobs:
Median annual wage: $59,300 Projected job growth through 2026: 12%
These workers can apply makeup to clients for events like weddings, proms or other events, or transform performers' face and bodies to resemble any character in any time-period, setting or situation. Those who specialize in doing makeup for the stage or theater command higher wages, but many talented makeup artists have found high paying-gigs by working with a celebrity, like Kim Kardashian-West's personal makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, or through popularizing their work on social media.
Little formal education is required to become a makeup artist, though many do complete a cosmetology program. Any makeup artist who is also a cosmetologist will need to be licensed. Theater degree programs, which typically include courses on stage makeup, can also be another route into the profession.
College art, drama, and music teachers
Median annual wage: $69,960 Projected job growth through 2026: 12%
These professors typically teach various courses within their field of specialization to students enrolled at colleges and universities. They may also conduct research, publish original research, apply for grants to fund their research, or supervise graduate teaching assistants who are teaching classes.
Depending on the subject taught and the type of educational institution, the kind of educational background a professor needs may be different. Typically a Ph.D. in a subject related to the one they will be teaching is required but a master's degree may be enough for some post-secondary teaching roles at community colleges. However, some university humanities departments may be more interested in the work experience and contributions an applicant has made in the field.
Median annual wage: $69,430 Projected job growth through 2026: 15% These tech workers design and create websites, ensuring a company or client gets the look they desire as well as the performance and traffic capacity needed. Their job can range from helping a client determine what information the site should contain, to writing code or testing applications.
While there is no technical degree requirement for this job, many in the field have at least an associate's degree in web design. Those who complement their design skills with programming languages also easily break into the industry as employers tend to favor developers with those skill sets, according to the BLS.
Median annual wage: $59,480 Projected job growth through 2026: -1%
Strong communication and writing skills are necessary for this occupation, which involves planning, revising and producing content for publication in books, newspapers, magazines or websites.They typically review content for spelling, grammar, factual and structural problems, rewrite content to make it easier to understand, review pitches from writers and assign stories, and help writer's develop new ideas in line with the publication's style and needs.
A bachelor's degree in communications, journalism, or English, combined with previous writing and proofreading experience, is typically required to be an editor, according to the BLS. Employers also typically favor candidates who have worked across multiple forms of media, such as television, websites, or social media, and experience or expertise in the field they're covering.
Writers and authors
Median annual wage: $62,170 Projected job growth through 2026: 8%
Just as the title suggests, these workers make a living effectively conveying stories or information and facts to readers through clean prose in a variety of places such as advertisements, books, guides, manuals, magazines, movies, plays, television scripts, blogs and novels.
While no degree is necessary to write a book, play or other material, many salaried positions in the field do prefer for applicants to have a bachelor's degree in English, journalism, or communications. Some do find their way into the industry through internships or self-publishing content through blogs or other forms of social media.
Film and video editors
Median annual wage: $62,650 Projected job growth through 2026: 17%
Using video-editing software, these film industry workers arrange video footage to tell a story or convey information. They may collaborate with camera operators and producers and directors on the overall vision for the production, the filming and editing techniques needed to improve a scene, or what is the appropriate equipment, such as the type of lens or lighting, to use.
Many film and video editors have a bachelor's degree in a field related to film or broadcasting, but a clear understanding of digital cameras and video-editing software is most important to land a job.
Median annual wage: $66,590 Projected job growth through 2026: 4%
These workers combine art, business, and engineering to make products that people use every day, according to the BLS. They develop the concepts and designs for all kinds of manufactured products from cars to children's toys. It's their responsibility to consider the functions, aesthetics, production costs, and usability of each of the new products they are creating.
A bachelor's degree, typically in industrial design, architecture, or engineering, is usually required for entry-level industrial design jobs, but the BLS also notes it is important to have an electronic portfolio with examples of your design projects.
Median annual pay: $68,230 Projected job growth through 2026: 6%
These architects design parks, gardens, playgrounds, green roofs, and other outdoor spaces for campuses, recreational facilities, businesses, governments and private homes. To do this, they meet with clients, prepare site plans and cost estimates, chose the landscaping materials and analyze environmental reports on land conditions, concerning things like drainage and energy usage.
To become a landscape architect, you'll need at least a bachelor's degree in landscape architecture and a state-issued license, which typically requires completion of an internship.
Producers and directors
Median annual wage: $71,680 Projected job growth through 2026: 12%
These workers create movies, television shows, and commercials as well as live theater and other performing arts productions. They select scripts or topics for a show, chose actors and other crew members, oversee the design and finances of the production, and then ensure the project stays on schedule and budget.
Most producers and directors have a bachelor's degree, usually in film or cinema, writing, or acting, and several years of work experience in a related-occupation such as actor, film and video editor, or cinematographer.
Median annual wage: $71,850 Projected job growth through 2026: 11%
If you've got experience in a field like medicine, engineering, or computer science as well as strong communication skills, becoming a technical writer will earn you a nice salary bump over other writing careers. These writers craft instruction manuals, how-to guides and journal articles to convey complex information more easily to an average reader. To do this, they will often study product samples, speak with the designers and developers, and listen to user feedback.
Employers favor candidates with a bachelor's degree in journalism, English, or communications, though many technical writing jobs do also require workers have either a degree or some knowledge of the scientific field the content they'll be producing pertains to.
Multimedia artists and animators
Median annual wage: $72,520 Projected job growth through 2026: 8%
These artists create two- and three-dimensional models, moving images, computer-generate images, and visual effects for television, film, video games and other entertainment media. They typically work with clients, such as directors, game designers, or other animators to help create the ideal graphics needed, set development deadlines and edit the animation or effects based on such client's feedback.
Employers favor job applicants with a bachelor's degree in computer graphics, fine arts, animation, or a related field as well as an impressive portfolio of work and strong technical skills, according to the BLS.
Median annual wage: $72,720 Projected job growth through 2026: 3%
These workers create original designs for new clothing, footwear or other accessories. They sketch out their ideas and designs, select the fabrics and patterns used in producing the item as well as the production techniques used to bring it to life, and then work the pieces into a collection that will appeal to consumers and retailers.
Most fashion designers have a bachelor's degree in a related field, such as fashion design or fashion merchandising. Developing a strong portfolio, or collection of design ideas that demonstrates your styles and technical abilities, can also help you to land a gig without that educational background since as many employers rely on this when making hiring decisions.
Median annual wage: $92,780 Projected job growth through 2026: 5%
These workers are responsible for the visual style of a product. They determine how to best represent a message or concept visually and then determine which photographs, art, or other design elements to use when producing items ranging from product packaging to media like magazines, newspapers, movie and television productions.
Most art directors have at least a bachelor's degree in an art or design subject and started out in another art-related occupation working their up to a director-level role.
Median annual wage: $79,380 Projected job growth through 2026: 4%
These workers plan and design houses, factories, office buildings and other structures. They can work on public or private projects and design for both indoor and outdoor spaces. They typically meet with clients to understand the requirements for a structure and then prepare scaled drawings of possible designs as well as the anticipated costs and construction time. If they receive the commission, they then oversee the work site to ensure construction adheres to the architectural plans.
Becoming an architect is a three-step process. First, you must complete at least a bachelor's degree in architecture, gain relevant experience through a paid internship, typically lasting three years, and then pass the Architect Registration Examination.
College English language and literature teachers
Median annual wage: $66,590 Projected job growth through 2026: 10%
Like college art or music professors, these educators typically teach multiple courses within their field of specialization to higher education students. They may also conduct research, publish original research, apply for grants to fund their research, or supervise graduate teaching assistants who are teaching classes.
Typically a Ph.D. in a subject related to the one they will be teaching is required to become a professor but some post-secondary teaching roles at community colleges require only a master's degree.
