I graduated last May with a BA in Graphic Design and a BA in Public Relations. I have been wondering if I really should aim to join the workforce and get all the experience I need to help me grow as an artist or if I need to go to Grad school. I want to
make sure I know exactly where I want to go with my career because Art in general fascinates me. So my real question is: Is Grad School mandatory for Graphic Design? Should I go now or should I work for a couple of years and then try to go back?
Hi Salena. I noticed you work for Marvel Entertainment.
ask yourself, which of these choices will get me to where i want to be in 10 years. I would go into the workforce then go back in a couple of years in my oponion... the way thing are going in educational culture, i would like to be in those classrooms rather
than today. Get paid and have some success, then see what school can do to further your experinces and talents.
Taking time off from Academia to acheive real-world experience in a job will add not just to your resume, but could only add to your school experience.
What I think is key is in the planning. Say, one solid year of working before enrolling. In that way, you also allow yourself to enhance your portolfio for a better spot at your first-choice university.
Also, making those work connections can help with necessary references to get into the best design programs.
Best of luck,
I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive Digital Asset Management (DAM) system (images, documents, video, etc.). Any experiences (good or bad) that you've had with any systems? It's looking like most of the packages out there are thousands and thousands
of dollars per year (which I don't have). Also looking into what is involved with basic implementation. I've never implemented this before, so I'm a DAM noob. Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
