    And that, my friends, is what a true graphic designer should always be trying to do.
    Maximize his clients message, whatever it may be.
    Very nice post B.

    I'm not sure you are getting that this guy just does clipping paths. I don't think he's selling those items.
    And I'm guessing it's a web banner, even though I agree with everything HotButton said....

  • How should beginners start learning graphic design?

    I've never learnt graphic design before, but I'd love to start learning graphic design in my own spare time. What is the best way a beginner should get started learning graphic design?

    You'll soon be drawn to certain styles and parts of the industry. Practice creating your own designs. It is certainly an industry where you learn by practicing.
