    Hello everyone!

    I am currently enrolled in a graphic design program at St. Cloud State University, which is located in Minnesota. But at the same time am very interested in the Art Institute' various graphic design programs. What do you all think is the best route to a perfect portfolio?

    By the way I know this is my first post and I hope I do not get hazed too terribly

                I'm from MN also. I've seen work from friends that have gone to both those schools and other graphic arts schools around the state and it really depends on the person. If you're really passionate about graphic design, and have at least some artistic talent, usually you're portfolio just evolves into something perfectly you. I've asked people which schools they like best and it's usually the environment, location, and instructors that made the decision for them. The curriculum was pretty similar in all the schools. It's your personal preference I guess.

                  For me the best way to learn most things is to just jump right in and start wrestling with it. When I can't figure something out, I'll look it up. It's not the case with everyone, but for me the frustration...

                  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...

                  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,...

                  You certainly do not have to upgrade to the latest and greatest piece of software to keep up with the printers. We have to buy every single damned bleeding edge upgrade to keep up with designers who insist...
