  • 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.

          Well, for one thing, the colors will have to be different, but even if you had posted this in all-black, I'd have said this:

          Yeah, you really haven't given us a fair shot at helping you. Could use a lot more context.
