Hey everybody! After reading some of these intros I see that I am one of many LAFS students! I am very excited to learn all about graphic design and I believe this is going to be a great place for me to learn the ropes. I am very new to all of this so I will likely have a lot of questions so any beginner advice is welcome. Thanks!
We don’t really have any specific “beginner advice” for designers.
Here’s my 2 cents:
be prepared as much as possible for the real world. Entry level is a 4-year degree (bachelors) and 2 years of experience. Get that experience now, while still a student. Preferably is mentored internships or part time work.
Figure out where you want to be in 10 years and work toward it starting now. If you don’t have a goal in mind, you will just drift along at the lower levels of the field. Aim high.

Nearly all of those LAFS students signed up to fulfill a class requirement, then promptly disappeared.
