Hi!!! I am needing a little bit of advice... I studied graphic design at university 3 years ago, I completed the course but didn't do very well, only managing a 3rd!!! I know honestly I didn't put anywhere near enough effort in, but in some aspects though the course was very competitive, with lots of talented people... which I guess would drive some people to try and compete harder... I however went completely the opposite way going from being top of the class (as I was in college) to muddling my way through the course and completely losing my confidence with doing any kind of art and design!! Up until a few months ago, I was scared to pick up a pencil to draw or even open Photoshop!! I did try to get a design job straight from University, as most people seeking jobs recently I had lots of interviews, even getting through to the 2nd stage on some occasions!! however about a year and a half ago I decided to try something else and thats why I'm now in my current position of marketing assistant.... Its really made me realize that design and doing something creative is what I love and what I should be doing!!! I'm currently taking an online course to build up my confidence and hopefully my portfolio... so far its working with my first grades coming back high!! Right now to my question, well actually questions... I'm just really unsure what to do... I don't know whether to stick to solely doing the course then think about the job situation afterwards? whether I should also be creating some self initiated projects? I'm not even sure what my style is anymore, so should i be thinking about this trying to focus my work in a certain direction?!? I've also been thinking about freelancing, but even sure where to start on this or even if it's a good idea right now!!! Any general advice would really help!! Especially from anyones who's been in a similar situation!! I've just got a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head and I'm just really sure about anything!!! Thanks!!!!
