Know Your Designer Star Sign

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator told us a lot about the different personalities we encounter at work, as well as if our personality type is suited for a design career. Now let’s look at the stars and see what they tell us about different kinds of designers according to their zodiac signs. Liza Enebeis, creative director at Studio Dumbar, a design agency in Rotterdam focused on visual and online branding, unleashed her inner astrologist and defined the 12 types of designers based on their star sign.


Aquarius (January 21 – February 20)

Aquarius designers are idealists with the desire to make the world a better place, one design at a time. Aquarius designers are also into sports. They’re never too tired for a jog after hours of work.


Pisces (February 21 – March 20)

Pisces designers tend to be more sensitive to how a design portrays ‘feelings’. They often think of the message, energy, and the emotional reaction that the design would provoke.


Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Aries designers are fearless and will say what they really think. They are not afraid to voice their opinions to the client. Aries designers also tend to focus more on branding, making their identity evident in every work they do.


Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Probably the most bankable designers are those born under Taurus, who like working in an elaborate design studio and love talking to clients. They are also the most reliable among the 12 signs. A Taurus designer will never leave a client disappointed.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini designers work well with Leo designers. Geminis are sweet-talkers who can convince clients to agree to anything they say. Beware though, as Geminis can get pretty extreme, from being proud of their own proposal to hating it after a while.


Cancer (June 21 – July 20)

As the opposite of Taurus, designers with the Cancer zodiac sign are more comfortable working from home in a simple set up, and like to keep client contact to a minimum. These sensitive designers also often tend to shy away from overly bright colors and bold, in-your-face typography.


Leo (July 21 – August 20)

Leo designers exude confidence through their work. With their brash self-confidence, they make the best keynote speakers and their designs also reflect their assertive personality.


Virgo (August 21 – September 20)

Virgo designers are all about details. They are the most precise and thorough, checking everything once, twice, thrice, four times before it’s even considered good enough.


Libra (September 21 – October 20)

Like Virgos, Libra designers are also perfectionists. They can take a while when designing since they like to weigh all options and like to consider all possible outcomes. Being this nit-picky, results to a Libre designer going on for weeks tweaking with changes only visible to themselves.


Scorpio (October 21 – November 20)

While Libras take time going over all the details, Scorpio designers will find that kind of work too laborious. Instead, they work more effectively by using their charm. They can work with even the coldest, most stern clients with their smooth talk and appeal.


Sagittarius (November 21 – December 20)

Sagittarius designers are the most playful and adventurous of the bunch. They are open minded and are willing to try things out for themselves before dismissing any new ideas.


Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)

Capricorn designers are the most hardworking; they just can’t stop designing. They like to step up with every design, creating a bigger and better proposal than the last.
