Hi Guys! I am new to AIGA. I have a BA in English, a TEFL certificate and I currently teaching but I have been an artist my entire life. I want a career in design. I miss being in the arts.
The thing is that I do not have any degrees in design or fine arts. I understand that a portfolio and work experience can help for someone who doesn't have degrees in design.
I would like to know if there are any AIGA members who are in my situation or have been in a similar situation.
Thanks so much! I am very excited about my new membership to AIGA!
I'm new here, so hopefully I'm posting this in a place where I can find some answers. I work for a printing company in the division that publishes a weekly community newspaper. My chief duty has been layout and ad design for the newspaper, but I also do
print design for the parent company. I've been here for a little over a year and have been sailing along nicely until our principal designer left a couple weeks ago. Since then I've been having a heck of a time with stuff because I'm not at all well-versed
in prepress. Many of my jobs have been coming back to me with issues of color separation - mainly in regards to the blacks. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend good, thorough resources for questions when it comes to prepress because as of right now I'm
just stumbling through employing the "cross my fingers and hope it works" method - which doesn't always work. ;-)
I am new to AIGA so please forgive me if this is posted in the wrong place. I am desperately trying to find someone to make 10 clamshells for presentation. Does anyone know of anyone in this business.
How's it going? I'll keep this pretty short but I'm in need of a little advice. I'm new to SF and I've been struggling to find any design work. I have some previous agency experience plus freelance but have failed to hold a steady job since I was laid off
in 09'. I finished grad school earlier this year to add work to my portfolio but I'm starting to be unsure of it. The main thing I've been told as to why I'm not getting hired/an interview is because I don't have the experience. Are there any suggestions on
getting expereience without it? Or in your honest opinion is the work I have not that good? (portfolio moelmore.format.com)
I'm reaching out to get some unbiased opinions so thanks for taking the time to read this or respond.
Hi AIGA Members,
I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction? I'm looking for a design internship / entry level job with a team driven studio.
If anyone is interested in connecting you can reach me at: email@example.com
I understand this is kind of stretch, but I would appreciate any advise or connections.
