  • Hello - seems so generic for these intro thread titles

    I'm Brooke, a designer from the Chicagoland area. I have over 10 years experience in design but still feel I have a lot to learn. Started in Photoshop, then learned Quark and a bit of Illustrator. At this point, I work daily in web and print design including everything from newsletter template creations, content management systems, photo editing, layout for brochures, catalogs, flyers, invitations, save-the-dates, etc. I love print layout the most and am working on getting to do that more.

    This past July I was fortunate enough to start r3 multimedia group with my brother, cousin and father. We are a creative image boutique with me as the head designer, my cousin as the head photographer, my brother as the social media expert and my father as the most important person - the investor. LOL I've taken on the role of leader in the business and it's a hard role to maintain.

    I'm also a mom of two boys (8 & 5), own a website for moms and am involved in a handful of councils/groups for women in business and for the kids schools. In other words, I barely have a free moment.

    I've been a member of a photoshop group for awhile but rarely work in Photoshop anymore. Thus, GDF seems like a perfect fit. I'm constantly looking to further educate myself on typography, prepress and good design.

        Yeah, it's a common question that's asked here. In the forum search feature, try searching for "What computer do I need". You'll find lots of replies.

        It would be awfully hard breaking into the web design business if all you can do is make Photoshop images of proposed web sites -- especially if you have no formal training or degree in graphic design....

        Crap. I didn't even think of the avatar.
        It was all set up for me to hit it out of the park and I only managed an infield single.
