  • Well the semester is over. I learned a lot this year.

    This is the end of my first full year of really studying graphic design. I didn't actually take any graphic design classes last spring, but I was taking some advertising and PR classes. That's how I discovered I loved doing graphics. This past semester I took 2 senior level classes my the recommendation of my adviser. They ended up being my favorite classes I've had in my 5 years here. I've learned so much in the past semester alone, and I'm thrilled that I've found something that I kind of have a knack for. I look forward to learning more over my next year!

    I have a question: What should I be doing at this point? I've been told I do decent work, at least in my classes. I really don't know where I want to work or even what I really want to do at this point.. What should be my top priority right now?

    Get an internship/job in the field. If you want to get into graphic design, entry level is pretty much a 4 year degree and 2 years of real world experience, and real world experience does not include any little so-called freelance projects you may have done. It means a real job, working with a real mentor, doing real work. Keep doing internships and part time jobs until you get your degree.

      There are a lot of opportunities for refinement there, so it's best to start with a general corrective statement: Everything is too large. More specifically, there is no focal point; no hierarchy; no...
