  • 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.
