Hello Everyone, My name is Chelsea. I’m a 28 year old Graphic Design student from Texas. Currently enrolled at LAFS. I’m very excited to learn and get some feedback from you great designers! Any help and information is greatly appreciated!
Welcome to the Forum!
We have quite a few of your fellow LAFS classmates who joined a couple weeks ago.
Welcome to the forum, @cmontgomery!
…and then left and disappeared. Someone should probably tell them that their teacher specifically chose this site because here he can see their user stats and level of activity - or lack thereof…
That’s ok. If they aren’t interested, I’m sure not.
Chelsea, did your professor tell you what to say in your introduction? The reason that I ask is because all of the LAFS introductions sound incredibly similar. Not picking on you, just curious what sort of guidance you were given.
The homogenous nature of the intros and the fact that not even one student posted a second time makes me wonder if this isn’t just a PR campaign for LAFS.
I asked that question a couple weeks ago and the student replied “No.”
But they are all too similar for that to be true and it sure is beginning to look like LAFS is spamming this forum.
Welcome to the forum. Stay awhile!
Thank you so much! We are given an assignment to sign up to the two links that we were given, or any others that we were able to find. I chose this one. I really like that I can communicate with others and you professionals out there. I’m really am excited to be apart of something. I’m sure some of the students just sign up so that they can finish the assignment, but I want more out of what I’m going to school for. I’ve dreamed about doing this literally since I was a little girl. I’m finally able to make that dream come true for myself. Thank you all for your feedback!
No, our professor just says to write an introduction. I guess I’m not really good at introductions, but I’ll work on that for future references. Thank you.
You are most welcome
We have folks here who know every nook and cranny of the business. It’s a great resource for sure
That’s great to know! With being in my first week of school, I’ll definitely be having some questions here soon!

cmontgomery — I’m glad you are a part of our community. One thing new posters from LAFS forget, is to be sure to include a specific question. Without a question there is little us old-timers can say. I am a recently retired Creative Professional with 50-years of experience in graphic design, writing, TV and radio production, so there are few areas in which I could not provide advice. So, ask away!
GOOD FOR YOU, C!—Like you, I wanted to be a Creative Professional from the time I picked up my first crayon. Never stop dreaming. Never stop wanting more than what your professors give to you or even think of you. Never stop learning, reaching for more, doing all you can to be your very best. And like me, one day will look back at a a very successful career and be amazed at what you have accomplished, because to you, it will seem like you never worked a single day in your life.
That’s an impressive statement and it’s the kind of dedication that’s needed to be successful in this field.
It’s not an easy field to break into because the number of design graduates exceeds the number of available jobs. The only way to break through this log jam is to out compete the others who aren’t quite as willing to go the extra mile, don’t want to do the extra work, don’t practice quite as hard or who fail to take full advantage of the opportunities that arise.
Hi Chelsea, I,m Heather, I am also a student at The LaFilm School. Im currently taking graphic design too. Maybe we can help each other in the future. Good luck with school.
Ya’ll should be a little more careful with personal info handed out online. Maybe a mod will be along to remove some details or you could try contacting one of them.
PrintDriver brings up a very valid point. You should always be very careful how much personal info you give out. So I’ve removed all the personal info
Thanks for the advice, internet safety is a must.
We were instructed to introduce ourselves and create a bio for our profile. We weren’t really given much info as to what to include with our introduction post to the forum.
