  • Apparel Design VS Graphic Design?

    I just gratuated with a BS in Graphic Design. I want to get into apparel design in the action sports industry. I've heard since I already have a GD degree, a further degree in apparel design is not necessary. Yet nobody hires in the apparel design industry without apparel design experience. what to do? more school? print/prepress just for experience period? etc?

    Your in PDX, try for an internship of some sort, at either: Nike, or Adidas.

    Nike being based out of Beaverton, and Adidas is off of Burnside and I think 23rd Ave. (west). If you cant get anything through them, I would ask them what approach they would take to get into the industry, and if they knew anyone or company in apperal design that offers Internships.

    If there is no passion in your life, then have you already lived? Find your passion, whatever it may be. Become it, and let it become you, and you will find great things happen for you, to you, and because of you.

          The resume is well-done and creative, but it instantly pigeon-holes you as someone whose tastes run toward comic book art. This is great if you're looking for employment at a place looking for that kind...

          Sinnoh
          Just got Illustrator and I couldn't be happier, however it seems really overwhelming from the videos I've seen. What is the best way to learn how to use it? Thanks

          The ''Goals'' you use are really stale. You are a designer. Of course you are seeking a position where you can use your skills. Otherwise you wouldn't be sending your resume. Instead of stating the obvious,...
