So, I received a BA (liberal arts, concentrated in film/video art) gosh, decades ago now. Due to taking care of a sick family member I had to take some time off of life; but, hey, they are better now. So, I went back to school and received an AS in graphic design in December 2020.
I feel like I need more guidance in graphic design, and have been timid to apply for jobs. Actually, I have turned a couple interviews away - total regret now and I should have tried. Nonetheless, I can’t seem to find internships or the likes, that’s really what I want, esp. paid ones. I live in the US, South Florida.
You guys give great feedback here, totally raw honesty & I love that. I know my portfolio is all school work, but I don’t have anything else to show. I won one logo contest on 99Designs, a finalist for a couple and have continued tooling around on there, but a slight disinterest has risen. Like, I just want to do more than logo design/99Designs. Totally, not dissing 99Designs, it’s cool for what it is. Anyways, very itchy to work/get out there and MAKE, while counting down the clock to turning 40 in a couple of years, lol. Of course, I would love some of that professional, raw and honest feedback on my portfolio (website). It may seem like a lot and unfocused, I just wanted to demonstrate that I can do “a little of this, a little of that”. Any words of wisdom, much appreciated and welcomed.
I don’t know how to include a link here to my portfolio , but it’s on my profile.
