I graduated from University in June with a BA(Hons) in Theatre Arts, within this course I specialised in Theatrical Make Up, I really enjoyed it but it is not the career for me. What I loved most was taking the photos and editing them myself and producing creative images, which if you see from my website I find my images to be more on the creative and graphic side then the fashion make up students. Since I graduated it took me till January to finally secure a full time job in a creative industry as a Visual Merchandiser however again this is not for me, it is all about fashion and styling and following in store guild lines, I want to be more creative! I have always been interested in graphic design, I studied it at AS Level and as previously mentioned I edited my own work throughout university.Thing is now I am looking to learn about graphic design so I can get into this industry but I have no idea where to start!! I was told these days I could teach myself with online courses and tutorials , problem is I just dont know exactly what I need to learn. There is so many short courses and adult courses all quite expensive and I dont want to waste money on the wrong one or even atall if I dont need one. I have since been dabbling in photoshop but its hard whilst I am working full time and often overtime. I was considering leaving my job and working part time whilst I teach myself but this is a big step to make and I really need to know exactly what Im doing. I just wonderd if anyone on here could give me some advice?
