  • Yes Virginia... I AM a Graphic Designer....

    Cheers: To my great joy, I got to reunite with a former co-worker this past week after she was hired by my company (though to a different department).

    Jeers: But I practically spit my soda out when she revealed that another former co-worker (at the old job, who I DID not get along with) is telling others that I only got my current job because my dad works here, and he "got me in." Except my dad has NEVER worked for my current employer, and what few people at my job KNOW my dad... well.. they think he's an @$$H0L3.

    So, yes Virginia... I DID get hired on my own merit. Not everybody has to lie on their resume or use somebody else to get "in".

    Seriously Insecure much?

    Who cares what they think? consider how little (both in frequency and disdain) you think of them
    Design is not decoration.

      On one hand Keming- yes, very true. Didn't give a second thought to them until she was brought up.
      That being said, it's a small town here. I hope people do not take her seriously when she says things like that.

        People who take gossip as truth aren't worth worrying over. Those that matter will come to you directly to find out the truth, if they're concerned about it.
        Shop smart. Shop S-Mart.

            I'd recommend colored borders. love it that you can scroll down and I think "get all the information". Unfortunately, it's in a foreign language none of anything seems to whittle anythng down,...

            The fact that this will be a paint mask and really just needs clean shapes with no regard for color palette I'd assume would be an easier task than taking a full color JPG image and performing the same...

            Remember all the things that made it easy to find whatever it was you were looking for on a site? Don't forget about it when you make your designs. The designs come second. Content first.

            I'm 17. I do not think my passion is going to change because to be honest since the time I was a kid I found computer graphics pretty dope. It's just that last year I got involved in it. At first I thought...
