Post Your Graphic Works (Graphic Design)

[Quote]If you have money, use Lynda.com If you don't have money, use youtube.com Remember, knowing how to use the programs doesn't ensure that you'll be a good designer no more than someone knowing how to chop an onion makes them a chef. Study design off of design blogs and from design books as well.  It'll make a world of a difference.

Advice for being/becoming a graphic designer?

[Quote]This will be a case majority of the time (especially in advertising).  If the company asks you in for an interview it means your work meets the standard of quality they're looking for.  The reason why that you're being interviewed is basically to see if you're not a dick.  If you're working late and they pass you in the halls at 10pm, will they hate it? That's what it comes down to. Goes back to the point where I said "Don't burn bridges." In the creative community, your reputation ALWAYS precedes you.  You have one name.  Don't mess it up.

If you're going to do editorial layouts, web design, etc., learn about the grid system. This is probably been my favorite book for it so far: [URL]

Advice for being/becoming a graphic designer?

The seniors of the BFA program always have a collective senior BFA show (mandatory for the BFA program) around finals week every semester. It's usually in the DTLB area.  Look up the program on Facebook and just keep posted up to when the show is.  There you'll see the level of designer you want to be when you finish the program, also, you'll see the wide variety of creatives each of them are. Not everyone leaves the same.  Some leave as web designers, brand designers, advertising, etc.  So you'll get a glimpse of what they can do. Here's a link to the last graduating class: [URL]

Advice for being/becoming a graphic designer?

Hey dude, I'm a CSULB alum.  Graduated from the Graphic Design BFA program in 2010. That school (not just being biased) is the best for graphic design out of the ones you mentioned. Depending on where you work after school, it can be stressful or not.  The higher position you are in, the more responsibility you have, but then again, the more money you make. Remember design isn't just making shit look nice, but you're trying to communicate a message to clients/customers.  When in school, don't be afraid of making mistakes, don't be afraid to be wrong, don't be afraid to fight for your idea/work, but most of all don't be arrogant. These rules will make your learning experience that much better. I freelanced for mom and pop shops and worked in the design offices on the CSULB campus (for ASI) when I was going through the program. So incase you need cash, it's possible to work and do the program, but learn time management.  Design classes will suck a lot out of your personal time. Word of advice.  If you want to be a designer, love it.  Be hungry to learn everything: branding, packaging, typography, environmental design, UI, motion, etc.  The better versed you are the more employable and desirable you become. As far as a career, you get out of it what you put into it.  The jobs offered and how far you go is all based off of the work. Not once since I graduated has anyone asked about my degree.  I know people that graduated as great designers and are finding work, but the lazier designers/thinkers are having trouble moving around.  You're stuff is good for someone only in HS.  Looks like you have basic knowledge of design that will only become better as you learn more formally. Hit me up if you have any more questions.
