After failing as an engineering major after 2 years, I’ve decided to switch to an art major focusing in graphic design. I’ve taken this current fall semester off to gather my bearings and decide what I really want to do and I think it’s graphic design. My objective is that once January 2020 hits and the new semester begins, I plan to enroll in classes and pick up a campus job relating to graphic design.
My question to you is if you were in my position and have ~3 months to start from the bottom, what would you do to build up an impressive portfolio to land some kind of small-time campus job and to get yourself started in the world of graphic design as a whole?
So far I’ve been doing a bit of logo design and brand identity work in illustrator and some minor editing in photoshop.
Thanks in advance for any info!
