So, my problem is I come from Russia and I do not have any financial independence. Therefore I cannot afford any good quality education in design.
My goal is to become a web designer who can live relying fully on web design as a job.
I decided to begin my journey with graphic design theory and I know most of the topics pretty good in my oppinion. I am kinda self-tought (like watched tons of vids in youtube and some free courses). But the problem is all those vids and stuff give only the theory itself and I feel that without applying this theory to practice (like making some layouts or smth like that) and gettiong feedback on that I cannot grow any confidence 'cuz in my oppinion practice and experience are the most important things in whole design.
So what I’m asking for is: if you remember what tsks you had to do when you were styding design in college/uni connected to GD theory (color, typography, shape, ect) can you please share them. Or maybe if there are some free resourses with tasks can you please share a link. And/or can u please share how did you become expirienced enough to apply for a job in design. That would be really helpful.
