  • Totally new and totally clueless

    I am new to the forms and somewhat new to graphic design. I took designed for two years in high school and now I'm working for the college to continue my education. I was looking into the Art institutes and dry but quite frankly they are too expensive and I cant afford it. I was also looking into purchasing a laptop for my classes, I have always used PCs but it is my understanding that Macs are better for graphic design and I'm not quite sure what to do. Can anyone help me?

      Welcome to GDF!

      Have you looked into State University options? The California State University system has many locations that offer design programs/degrees.
      Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.

          Right, you don't HAVE to take it to Photoshop, but try it 20 times, then try direct export 20 times, and then decide for yourself which result is more worthy of your workflow....

          The sample you posted is a doodle. I see those books all the time too, and I find it amazing that someone (many people) figured out how to turn a buck from their doodles. They're fun to draw...just get...
