    How can I get Firefox 3 to stop logging me out everytime I close the browser?

    I have figured out some essential things through your site post. One other point I would like to convey is that there are lots of games out there designed particularly for toddler age young children. They include pattern identification, colors, family pets, and shapes. These generally focus on familiarization rather than memorization. This helps to keep little ones engaged without having a sensation like they are learning jskfsgi.

    What kinds of things should I make for my graphic design college portfolio? I was thinking I should do some photoshop images, and possibly some drawings and make some cards. Is there anything I should definitely create for my portfolio?
    I would really like to impress them, if at all make them want to accept me. So what kinds of things would be good to include?

    Im wanting to study Graphic Design – I have an Undergrad degree in Journalism but nothing related to Graphic. It’s hard to gauge which University is most respected for Graphic? Any insights would be great!

  • encyclopath August 10, 2013 at 1:19 pm

    Would a graphic design degree be good enough to work as an electronic designer in the fashion or accessory (such as Claires) industry?

  • mrankinmatt August 12, 2013 at 4:59 am

    I currently considering a four year degree in graphic design. I am artistically talented and I have two solid years of foundational art/illustration courses from Ringling School of Art & Design. I also have a marketing background with exposure to CRM, online media, and web analytics tracking.

    Does anyone have thoughts on transitioning into the graphic design field?

  • johnkaiser 22 August 13, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    I’m a senior in high school and I’m planning on going into graphic design for starters (to a state school–not art academy, is this ok?), but I’d also like to look into animation/illustration. Do these things even have anything to do with each other?

    What should I do to get a head start on all of this? It’s kind of a recent decision so I don’t know much about animation at all. What should I do to start learning the basics?

    Thank you!

  • ttocs August 14, 2013 at 2:57 am

    I currently use Print Shop but am looking for some better graphic design software. I am a fast learner but am still looking for something user friendly that I will be able to jump right into with little experience at first. I will be using the program for designing graphics for t-shirts. Any suggestions?

  • tjpimpin August 18, 2013 at 10:56 am

  • Ed D August 19, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    I originally wanted to go into Graphic Design at Georgian College, but there were two programs. One called Graphic Design and one Graphic Design Production, what is the difference? Should I just take the production one? Has anyone taken either of these courses or is currently taking them that could help me out?

  • Cliffy N August 27, 2013 at 2:00 am

    I have been searching all over to find Graphic Design courses I can take. First, I don’t know if I should take a Certificate Course or actually go for the Associates Degree at a local college? Or are there courses I can take without attending a college that will get me started as an entry level graphic designer ? Can you guys give me your opinion or what should I do… Thanks!

  • Benihana August 28, 2013 at 9:42 am

    What classes are best if you are just beginning graphic design classes? Photoshop, INdesign, Illustrator? Should more focus be on Adobe Photoshop or should a bit of all be taken?

  • JDOGG1122 August 28, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    I went to school for Graphic Design a few years ago, and have been taking baby steps to break into the industry. It’s hard to find a position open for a designer in my area and want to try and freelance on the side, and maybe even make it full time. What is the best way to start my business from home?

  • tjpimpin September 5, 2013 at 6:13 pm

    What is the best keyboard for graphic design and serious typing? I have a mac and have been considering the apple wireless keyboard, but am wondering if the smaller size will be uncomfortable for serious typing.

  • PolishPokeyPimp September 8, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    Right now I’m doing some freelance graphic design work. I find it incredibly difficult to find new clients because of my social anxiety. The clients that I have currently love the work i do. My question is should I continue pursuing to create a career in graphic design or should I find something that’s more suited to me and my personality. I tried working at an ad agency in the past and unfortunately because of my anxiety I’m I’m capable of doing so. Any ideas?? Want to do next.

  • fattiemanny September 18, 2013 at 11:24 pm

    I want to go to SCAD for photography and graphic design and was debating about which one I should minor and mjor so I thought to just major at both. How long would it take to graduate and is it a good idea?

  • thinkthought September 19, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    I am a going to be a junior this year in school, and I am trying to start up my graphic design portfolio. What are some of the different elements that I should display? I was thinking of doing an add for sneakers, water, and showing how two of the same products would be advertised in different magazine (i.e Harper’s Bazaar and National Geographic) I was also thinking of doing an identity package. But what else should I do?? I really want to have it put together by January and I need some helpful tips and opinions. Thanx!

  • Mistry October 6, 2013 at 9:22 am

    Few weeks ago I decided that I wanted to study graphic design. I want to work in the area of advertisement some day. However, I don’t have a portfolio. I need some guidlines and I’d appreciate any suggestion or advise you give me. What should the portfolio be like? I mean do all works have to be in the same style and with the same theme? Can I create a folder with my own cover or I have to buy one? How many works I can include and what format?

  • Superman October 15, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    I want to complete a degree in graphic design at uni, however I would like to study abroad. I live in England and the idea of studying in Amsterdam or Paris really appeals to me. What are some good universities abroad that have graphic design courses?

  • Ryan Dunn October 22, 2013 at 6:03 pm

    Okay, so a couple of my friends are going into graphic design and I plan on becoming an illustrator. What’s the difference between a graphic designer, someone who does computer graphics, media designer, and illustrator?
    The thing is since I wanna be an illustrator, can I have more mediums than just pencil and paper? I wanna use drawing tablets and traditional stuff but I’m just not sure if I’ll be restricted or not :/ I’m really new to this….

  • Jeff October 24, 2013 at 1:09 am

    Graphic design has plenty of divergent definitions out there; and I’d like to hear the personal opinions of what people think graphic design should be defined as. I’m welcoming answers from designers and non-designers alike.

  • johnkaiser 22 October 26, 2013 at 1:06 am

    I’m thinking about going for a double major but I’m not sure how graphic design and music will fit together. Are there any jobs where I can use both of my talents as a painter and a musician? I really need some guidance.

    I’m planning on going to the Academy of Art University in SF, but I’m stuck between whether I should take Computer Arts: New Media or Graphic Design. Could someone please tell me the difference? Also, if I do take Computer Arts:New Media, what type of career opportunities are there? I know obviously if I take Graphic Design, I become a Graphic Designer, am I right? Please help!

  • Jermaine J November 20, 2013 at 5:38 am

    I currently work as a graphic designer but would like to work at a college (in graphic design) some day in the future. If anyone knows the best way for me to achieve this please share 🙂

  • Dom L November 20, 2013 at 6:54 am

    I’m thinking about majoring in graphic design. When you have a career in graphic design, do you have to illustrate and design on your own using the computer or can you use the help from the computer to design and illustrate?
    Also, what kinds of careers are there for graphic design?

  • Daniel November 26, 2013 at 9:20 am

    I’ve been asked to teach a small class the basic of graphic design. The class will be 1.5 hrs 1 day a week but I want to make it worth my time. I’ll be covering from the process of design up to prepress. Anyone have an idea?
