  • 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.

          Are they something you are trying to right click?
          That doesn't always work. There are web tricks out there that make doing that give you a blank file.

          Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.
