    The degree only helps to get your portfolio looked at if you are applying exclusively for a graphic design job. But if you are applying for any other type of job that might use graphic design as a secondary...

    A PHD in graphic design sounds a bit snobbish, like something you would need to be a graphic design critic/columnist, not to be an employee in the real world. When I think PHD, I think six figure income,...

  • My head is pounding!

    Hello all,


    Hmmm where to start... well I have been taking another crash course in the design world now that I have been trying to learn the basics of html, css, JS, php and so on.

    I started by building a site following along with this guy: http://www.timothytraining.net/index.html

    I used his practice files to create two sites in DW and everything went pretty well. I feel I got a good grasp on writing html, css and file organization. So whats the problem? The sites look good but my friends that I'm designing for need a content managing system so I went through 5 hours of tutorials on using wordpress.org at the same time I went back to lynda.com for some more tutorials on building wordpress themes using PS/notepad/wamp and so on... Then I started seeing all these really nice looking WP themes and thought oh sht!, this looks like a trap but so hard to resist.

    So now Im here and feel super confused with all this info and want to know what route I should pursue.

    Also want to add that I worked in PS and designed about 100+ works for the last 6 years without realizing that all my logos, flyers, ect. were a bit off due to bitmap ... btw, I'm also in another crash course learning Illy.

    I don't want to travel down another road like that in webdesign.

    If you read all this then thank you.

    advice greatly appreciated
