    According to my views, if you want to be a professional graphic designer, creativity and curiosity is the most important factor. How you present your work differs you from rest of the designer.

    If you really speak about professionalism, I think you should also understand trends, what looks modern just now. "What's hot and what's not." :) Other than that, I think it's most about technical skill and and understanding how to sell yourself.

    Most important from my point of view is the design sense. You must be able to identify the client's need and successfully portrait them into design.

    You would obviously need to be creative and have knowledge on various tools and technologies to help you with the process. There are many online tutorials which could help you understanding the tools, but the creativity has to be yours.
    Cheers.

    Being a professional designer is in a way the same as being an established artist. You have to make a way to take your art out there. In graphic designing, you need to be known. To achieve the legitimacy, you need not spend all your nerves on getting famous. There are a lot of people and tools out there that can help you while you focus on the designing itself. Take SEO for example.

    That's the wonderful thing about graphic designing. You want to learn how to be a professional graphic designer? Just say, "I'm a professional graphic designer". You'd be amazed at how well that works for so many... people.

    The difference between an amateur and professional designer is in their creative use of lens flares.

    No formal qualification or professional degree is required to become a graphic designer.The important prerequisite to become a good graphic designer are:

    A creative mindset.
    He or she should be well versed in graphic designing soft wares such as Photoshop,Corel Draw....
    Good understanding of User experience and Web graphics Design.
    Should have good color sense.
    The above mentioned skills are inevitable to become a good graphic designer.But it would be advisable for beginners to go for formal training in graphics Institutes.
