I graduated from college last year with degrees in Studio Art and Psychology (and an art history minor). I’ve spent the last year making/selling more traditional forms of art, but I’ve set my sights on moving towards more graphic design. During my Studio Art major I took a few computer imaging classes, so I have basic skills in illustrator and indesign, and I took classes on the fundamentals of design theory. While most of my work is still traditional, I do freelance design work here and there (logos for friends, digital ads for my current internship, etc,). I’ve also been teaching myself the basics of html/css for the past couple of months!
Anyway, I’m excited about finally setting up a concrete plan for myself to improve my skills and build a design portfolio. I have a lot of self-discipline, so it’s mostly about developing a path that I can map out for myself. I welcome any advice on tutorials, books, study plans, projects–anything that has helped others improve! I know the bulk of improvement will come with practice.
Thank you advance!
