You cannot get a Tier 2 General sponsored visa with an 'agency'. You can only be sponsored by the actual employer.

You will need to find suitable employers in the HO approved sponsor list, link below, and apply for any positions they might have.

The link you sent has attached Document titled : (Tiers 2 and 5 register of sponsors).
So I can understand :
The Document itself contains a huge number of Organisations names that offer Tiers 2 and 5
And I have to look for each of this Organisations and contact by asking if they are seeking for a (Graphic Designer) employee or not ?

You need to identify the companies in your chosen industry/field and then look for jobs through their websites etc.

Members are not permitted to post names and recommendations on the forum. You will need to do some of the research yourself based on your circumstances.

Yes , that what I was doing here.
I downloaded the document and I search for words that are related with Graphic design ( Ex: Media...)
I google the name of that company and visit their website and look for JOBS available.
And YEAH ! I guess I am getting some results.
But I still need to ask you 2 questions :
1 - If I contact a company and if I get their attention dose that mean they will offer me a sponsorship -since they are in the Organisation Names List - ?
2 - Should I only focus on Tire 2 companies ? or should I also be concerned by Tire 5 ?

1. You would have to apply for jobs and hope that you make it through the interview process. You will have to make it clear that you require sponsorship. The sponsor must complete the Resident Labour Market Test to prove that no settled or EU or British citizen is available for the job. A company does not have to choose you or offer your sponsorship. Certain criteria also have to be met in order for the company to request a Restricted Certificate of Sponsorship in the monthly allocation from HO. The points required in recent months have been very high, with some member trying already for 6 months to get a Restricted CoS from their sponsors. Without this Restricted CoS, you cannot apply for a visa. You can only be sponsored by a company on the list though, ye.

2. You can only apply for Tier 5 if you are from a qualifying country. Tier 5 also does not allow you to apply for ILR or PR and is limited to 1 or 2 years only. You should focus on Tier 2 sponsors.

There are job boards that let you filter by sponsorship - for example, the JobServe.com board.

In principle it is possible to get sponsored by a consultancy that will sell your work to other businesses. But it has become much more difficult in the recent years due to stricter Tier 2 regulations around permanent employment. Having worked for such a consultancy I don't think it's a realistic start option for a graphics designer.

Also, do not discout non-sponsors straight away. Businesses will sometimess be happy to get a sponsorship license for the right candidate. I heard of a couple of such cases.
