Hi, I am currently doing a Foundation Degree in 'Graphic Design with Interactive Multimedia'. However, having come to the end of the first term I have the option of transferring to another course which is run in parallel with it; 'Interactive Multimedia with Graphic Design'. Despite both courses having exactly the same words in the title the emphasis in each case is on the first subject in the title. Hence the course I am currently on is mainly Graphic Design based but I will get to do Dynamic Web authoring, build a Flash website and do a bit of 3D animation as well. I'm really enjoying the graphic design and want to continue with it but Im worried that I will find it difficult to get work in the future; people are saying that design for print is going to die and that newspapers and magazines are going online. And Im not sure that my current course will equip me well enough for web design etc. If I transfer to the other course I wont get to do any more graphic design but I will get to do a little bit more web design and will also get to do: -2D and 3D animation -Video & Audio Post Production -Interface & Interaction Design In terms of finding work in the future Im assuming that Video & Audio post production is a pretty niche market, and I guess that animation is a specialist area. Basically my questions are: 1. Do you think there are many jobs around that involve Interface & Interaction design and motion graphics? I'm assuming these jobs are fairly sparse ? 2.I would like to have the option of being self-employed in the future - how easy is it find work being a self-empoyed graphic designer? Would I need to do web design as well? 3.In terms of finding work in the future as an employee do you think there are there more jobs around for web designers than graphic designers? 4. Which course do you think would put me in the best position in terms of finding work in the future? And sorry for such a vague and long winded post! I have until the end of the week to decide so am panicking!
