I’m Anna from Germany and I’m actually programming a Point and Click adventure game. Since you can’t earn money with an unfinished game, I had to find a part-time job.
I started as an office assistant and slowly established myself as an advertising designer in a small family business. Every time I get a new challenge and sit in front of an empty (digital) canvas I think to myself “We may as well expect the worst… ;D” But in the end I’m really proud of the result. And I get good feedback from the region. Unfortunately the only person within the company who sees a benefit in the (definitely) better public appearance is my boss.
Unfortunately I burned out over the last year and need a break from this job, but actually, deep down in my heart, I love the job; as an unskilled person getting a job as a designer is a great privilege.
I started reading “White space is not your Enemy” to get better at my job, but I stopped doing it when everything went over my head. Although I did a year’s internship at an art academy, I had to teach myself how to work digitally; I bought my first graphics tablet in 2007. And I actually think I’m a loser when it comes to graphic design; I’m more of an illustrator and even there I hardly find any lovers.
Well, but my passion is my point and click adventure game; and there’s more to it than just graphics.
Ok, now you know everything about me I hope that I will get help here if I have questions.
