I agree with what most people are saying. Your questions expose your lack of understanding of the whole design process with regards branding and identity, You don’t appear to even see what you don’t yet know. I am not trying to crucify you, but you really need to try to understand where the gaps in your knowledge are.
I would always suggest getting a formal education. That way you will find out if the whole design field is one for you and you’ll get an honest, professional, knowledgable opinion of your abilities.
Alternatively, get a low end job in the industry and work your way up.
Whichever of those two routes you choose Is going to be hard and take sacrifices, but nothing worth having ever comes easily. Expecting to be able to sit in your bedroom with a laptop and YouTube videos to become a professional designer is optimistic at best and, honestly, more than a little naive.
Ask people who have been successful in their career and they will all have stories of student hardships, pounding pavements with your portfolio, visiting design companies, trying to find an opening, rejection. When they finally do find a job, 20 hour days, poor wages. Eventually after about ten years of this, you may be at a point where you feel you are beginning to understand what you are doing. Then you start to make a reasonable, rewarding living.
It will almost certainly involve moving away from the town you grew up in, maybe even the country. You will probably have to take a menial job or two to fund yourself,
That is what it takes to be successful. If you are not prepared to do this, then enjoy a career doing $10 logos for clients who have no idea what they are talking about either.
If this all sounds hard, then, good. It’s a competitive field and ONLY those with the persistence, tenacity and of course, ability, who go about things the right way will get anywhere near the top of the heap.
Learn what you don’t understand, rather than trying to find an easy route, Free ALWAYS has a heavy price.
