  • my career path?? help

    Hello everyone… I kind of need some help on a career path.

    I have my associates in Applied science for graphic design… and I took some time off before I go back to school to get my bachelors. I have a full time job that I hate… and I can’t wait to get back to school. The thing is I’m not sure what I want to go back to school for… something art related is all I know… I think.
    My background is fine art, I taught myself everything, then I got into graphic design. I love both. I’ve been looking up art careers… I’ve found some but I’m not really sure what to go for. I wouldn’t mind working hands on with art or if I was teaching it or had some kind of art therapy thing going on. The thing is I live in northern nj, and I do not want to commute to the city everyday. Anyone have suggestions on careers and how common/easy it would be to get a job? I need any help you can offer. I’d really appreciate it.

    Take a look in the "Resources" section, and search for "careers in design" on the forums. There's some good info in there.

      I like that you are answering the 'why' questions. Why is the text background red, why are you using the crumbled paper texture etc.

      This shows that you are thinking threw what you are doing...

      Hey @someguy,
