    are there any websites or anything out there that I can sign up for for free or check out daily, that keeps up with all the new things in graphic design?

    i feel like im really out of the loop sometimes with stuff. I know youthedesigner has like newsletters and such and different articles on the site. I was just curious if there was other sites or anything out there like that.

    Search for some graphic design blogs, maybe follow them on Twitter.

      If you are taking about the design side of this business, you should be reading Communication Arts magazine and Print magazine. Check their web sites. Print has a daily newletter and CA has news section with links to current information.

      These magazines feature design that is out front and pushing the edge of the envelope. However, generally, the current current trends in design are not earth shaking.

        I find out a lot of cool stuff just by following certain people on Twitter.

        As for publications, I like How, Computer Arts, and GDUSA.

        But, be well-rounded. Read stuff that is design-related, but not graphic design. One of my favorite magazines is American Style. I also get a lot of inspiration from photography magazines.

          I like - also, facebook friend your old school mates, co-workers, new contacts, etc. I see many a new thing on the fb. Personally, I also like to pick up the Photoshop magazines now and then to see what's new in digital illustration.

              For this type of business, I'm not bothered by an amateurish card, but the technical issues PD described need to be addressed

              Are they text hyperlinks or "button" hyperlinks. Button hyperlinks tend to break on several readers. Including when opening a PDF in a web browser. Which is probably happening with the PC and...
