Hello everybody, I could really use some help and any kind of advice is wanted! I have a bachelor in film studies and I'm interestd in doing a master in communication design or visual communication. I don't know if it is possible to pass from the one field to the other and my main problem is the portfolio. I have an interest in graphic design and I have some experience in Illustrator and InDesign, but not enough knowledge to submit a portfolio for a master (I think). I want to apply for next year, so I have 7 months to work on it. So, I'm thinking of two options. Either to learn by myself online and work on my portfolio or to go to an one-year course to learn the basics and make my portfolio. What would you recommend? I found one school named Accademia Italiana, but it's kind of expensive for one year and I am not sure if it's worth it. Do you know anything about this school? Do you have amy other one-year course to suggest? I live in Europe and I want to stay here. Also, I would really like to do an internship or a work experience program, but I dont have enough knowledge to do so. Do you think that I could find any company or studio in this field that I can work at just to get some experience? Has anyone done it before, having almost no experience when starting? I am really confused and I would really appreciate any kind of advide or just anyone's experience on a similar situation! Thanks a lot in advance, anything would be helpful!
