    Oh...well then, to fulfill your thoughts:

    No! you'll never be a designer! You can't see colour, so you can't make things look cool! And you smell like a toad! go away! you make my knees hurt! You and your "Colour Blindness" make my pets cry!



    Seriously tho, you'll be fine.

      side note, i sometimes still ask my wife what color shirt/pants/socks I have picked out. I have some green and brown shirts that i get confused with especially and rather not wear the same color shirts day after day. Funny though I have a few brown button-downs that are striped (thin lines) and I kept wanting to have a green one and she asked why since i can't see, i said everything is in the brown/chocolate color i wanted something different.

      But she hates when I try and help pick out paint. drives her nuts when i say "no, no, no" she tells me to shut up and stop trying to help.

      I found a neat test on the ColorMunki website that had you move colors on a slider from one tone to the other and it told you how bad you were (or good) I think out of 100 i scored near 30. worse than i thought.

            Bladez saracastic? Nah that never happens.
            (and it's not just today... trust me it's all the time and when I say all the time I mean ALL the time!)

            As for the pay of designers... pretty crappy in my area of the world.

              We don't do graphic design and other artistic type stuff for the pay Trapster...*LOL* There's a reason we're called "Starving Artists"

              And I'm not always sarcastic!!! Only on days that end in 'Y' (so yesterday, today...but tomorrow I won't be!) *LOL*

                I am not a designer but I think its quite hard to design if you are color blind. Its one of designer assets to be good in color combination,isn't it? Anyway all their opinions make sense why don't you try..Good Luck!

                    It's not as hard as one might think, if you follow the recommendations made above. Now, if you try to hide it the whole time and never ask for someone to have a look at the colours, then yea....it's gonna be a real challenge. Especially when you have to give a good reason as to why your grey looks more green....*LOL*

                        I agree with Bladez. It is defninitely do-able with colour blindness, but it is important to get someone else's input on your colour choices just to be safe. I'm colour blind and always get a second opinion (usually from my wife).

                        I really don't find that it affects my design work very much though.... unless I was asked to design some colour blindness tests. That might be an issue.

                            We're not saying that there's not plenty of jobs available, or that there's anything wrong with it. We're just saying that Graphic Designers don't rake in the big bucks, especially when compared to say, an engineer. My dad is a journeyman machinist and makes a TON of cash, because it's such a specialized trade, and it's a declining trade. These days, designers are a dime a dozen and the market is over saturated. We don't design because we wanted to make big money. We design because we are artistic and creative and enjoy doing it. We still make enough to live comfortably, but money has nothing to do with choosing this career path.
