Hello fellow design fanatics - I'm a UXer in New York City open to networking and learning. Contact me if you're looking for someone empathetic and design-y.
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

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,

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.
I am a local Creative Director here in Detroit, MI. I work for a major food distributor as their head designer, creating everything from corporate food and wine brochures to logos, company truck designs, etc. In a nut shell I design everything food and wine
for the company! I am looking for a competition to enter that would offer a food and/or wine brochure entry. Does anyone know of a great competition to enter? Thank you in advance for your help everyone :)
Sarah Conaway is a Los Angeles photographer I came across a few years ago. I don't know a lot about Sarah or her work, except that I have a piece of hers in my living room that I truly love. It passes the "if your house was on fire, what...
