Motto: Die trying to live.
Graphic Design is a field with a wide range, pros to meme makers and everything in-between.
Making designs for fun and for arts sake is fun, but at the same time it remains a marketable skill.
If you are someone who desires to move into the field of graphic design for a living
but don't really know where to start, this thread is for you.

I have been working professionally in the field of:

-Graphic Design
-Graphic Management
-Marketing
-Advertising
-Photography
-Printing/Wide Format Printing
-Garment Printing & Embroidery
-Product Design & Production
-Etc.


I started in the industry at the age of 19 and have worked in a varied depth of the design industry,
since then I have been dedicated to building my career with little to no schooling outside of high school.
I wish to show how possible a career in the graphic field can be if you have the drive and skill behind your work.
A proper degree is a good thing to achieve, if you pay attention in school with a bit of luck and
some good teachers you can and will learn a lot about the functions of the industry.
That being said, you will have the potential for a bigger paycheck with a degree but experience will land you the job.

The purpose of this topic is to provide anyone out there aspiring to join the industry the ability ask questions, advice, tips, etc.
I will not claim to be the most educated or skilled, but I can help you based off of my experience.

So, ask away!
