  • 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.

          I created my first signature in 12 years of not touching Photoshop or any graphics program in general. What do you guys think?

          Oh, I wouldn't go so far as to say ''never use it for wide format.''
          It gets used all the time for some very very large things. I recently did a 16' x 87' backdrop built in Photoshop. It was printed...

          Yeah, I have noticed they aren't as rich as I would like them to be. Luckily it seems like most of her stuff is going to be about online anyway. Thanks for the advice!
