I’m not completely new to design but I feel like I have a lot to learn regarding the process part of graphic design in particular. My main focus has always been art and illustration, sometimes animation (as this was what I did back in the day at a company) After years working for a studio as an artist, I’ve moved countries and have been working fulltime at stores trying to figure out which way I wanted to go. Now want to immerse myself completely into the art of graphic design with hopefully gaining enough experience to become an independent designer
Why start now? I made some changes for the past years and learned a few things about myself and setting some goals. Resulting in that I’m not the type of person who is motivated enough to build on someone elses company, but rather seeing my own.
Within Graphic Design I’m leaning towards learning about Logo / Icon design, illustrations and handlettering, or just lettering in particular and I’m also eager to learn about film and photography as this is a really nice additional skill to have (plus so much fun to learn!). I hope to be getting some decent experience at a design studio once I have the right portfolio material after which I can take steps to proceed on my own after that.
Next to this ambition I’m an aspiring storyteller, love films and to listen to motivational podcasts and need to be around plants and animals a lot
Well that was a bit about me. Looking forward to meeting you fellow designers and supporting eachother throughout!
