    Hi all! I am a designer in Louisiana and trying to make any and all networks I can. I have a part-time design job and freelance, but also have a full-time job unrelated to design. I really want a full-time design job but the job market (and pay) here is horrible. Just trying to keep my portfolio up and do as much as possible. Looking to move out of state in the near future. Any advice on smaller places with high job markets, or is my only chance bigger cities like NY? Looking forward to being invovled on the site and meeting fellow designers!

          I think Minneapolis/St. Paul has a pretty decent job market. Not quite as big as Chicago or NYC?!

                    Hello tink.

                    Want us to clap for you to show that we believe?
                    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

                      Sure thing budafist!

                      Funny story though - I dressed up as Tinkerbell a few years back and the whole 'clap if you believe' came up - everyone started clapping. Except one guy, and when told that if he didn't clap I would die, he said he didn't care if I died. Hm, guess that's a sad story, not funny. We laugh about it now though.

                          You should have poked him in the eyes.

                          I'd clap.

                            Your wisdom and experience are showing again. It's true there are all types of work situations to be found, and very few of them qualify as a "dream job." Whether you can tolerate a situation,...

                            Yup. That's largely my take on things too. Maybe I'm jaded by the constant parade of newbies, wannabes, amateurs and kids on the forum making artsy, fartsy whatevers in Photoshop and proposing to go into...

                            I know a few designers who crossover. Figured there is a reason for the digital illustration and art classes we take in our schooling. Some may weild the skill level to draw pencils and umbrellas, not...

                            As the person who oversees both the creative group and the marketing where I work, I spend a whole lot of time dealing with marketing, marketers and places where marketers have varying degrees of control....

                            So did they ask you to adjust their logo or not? If not, you'll just have to live with it. If they have, then it's your job as the designer to understand what typeface to use to communicate something....
