  • 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.

          Reply to The continuing trend of unpaid internships
          I think it depends on your location. From where I live, unpaid internships are quite rare. The salary is decent (based on my experience last year) as it is enough to pay for your food and gas per day....
