Why I Want To: I've been considering branching out for the best part of a year or so now. Currently my workload consists of about 90% web design, then the rest being the occasional logo design job (portfolio link in my sig). Basically I'm getting a little tired of designing virtually nothing other than websites. Back when I was in college, I saw myself as working on a range of design projects for both web and print, but slowly over time I became more of a web design specialist as opposed to an overall designer as I kinda took the wrong path (I won't bore you with the details). Not only that but I've always looked more at graphic design for inspiration as opposed to just web design, and I've always found reading Computer Arts to be far more interesting than reading .net. So anyway, I like to code, but I don't like the fact that it is such a massive part of my job. My main goal for this year is to become more familiar with print and branding, as I'd love to work in those fields as well as web design. So basically you can say my dream job role would be something along the lines of 'Graphic Designer... (who can code)' What I've Heard in The Industry: I've finally got round to reading CA Collection: Vol 01, and I see that a lot of the advice in there is talking about broadening your skillset to help get through the recession. A lot of the designers in there say that they are adapting to digital as so many of their clients can't afford print at the minute. So it seems a lot of graphic designers are moving into designing for web, whereas I want to do the opposite. One thing I'm wondering however, is there much work in print these days? I know of a lot of people who design for both web and print, but then I've also heard other print designers saying they've almost been *forced* into designing for web due to the economic climate. How does everyone else find it? Can you quite comfortably make a living from print design & branding if you're good enough? And another question? How many people here design for both on and offline mediums?
