  • 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.

          Thank you, all very good points. Yes, my personality type is fairly laid back and even implementing things such as contracts and deposits has been out of character. To take the lead is very unnatural...
