    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?

                      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.

                            As someone who sometimes designs book covers, a realistic design needs to consider the sales brought on by shelf appeal. And shelf appeal doesn't just depend on aesthetics; it also depends on grabbing...

                            I like that you are answering the 'why' questions. Why is the text background red, why are you using the crumbled paper texture etc.

                            This shows that you are thinking threw what you are doing...

                            Hey guys,

                            I have been designing for about 10 years now as a freelancer and am entertaining the idea of trying to find a job at a creative firm. Right now I'm building my resume and portfolio...

                            Hey @someguy,

                            Thanks for sharing your designs! I would encourage and challenge you to try to narrow your design focus. Right now none of the designs are 'bad' but none are 'good'. Design,...
