Hi, I am a college student and I was briefly introduced into Graphics Design by my teacher. Since I am still unexperienced in this field, I would like some advice on what should I learn to do/ use and what standards should a beginner graphics designer meet in order to succeed in getting a job in this domain. So far I have some experience in Illustrator and I am planning on gaining some experience in Photoshop as well.
I would also be more than glad if you could recommend we a low-medium priced (would prefer not over £80) graphics tablet. I would like one that medium-sized and with multiple customizable keys.
So far I enjoyed designing a couple of logos and doing some simple illustrations, but I am not satisfied with my current level of work. I would like to develop myself in this domain even if it would remain just a hobby.
Thank you for your attention and I am looking forward to your answers.
