I am a new graphic designer in Hertfordshire who has recently decided to try and make some money from what was previously a hobby. I am entirely self-taught (which to you seasoned pros will surely be obvious from my work!) unless you count a GCSE which I completed in... 1997! I have joined this forum in order to learn more about the field of design, in order to both improve my work and enable me to produce designs that are useful to my clients, in particular that are suitable for professional printing. I make no claims about my ability, however several people have approached me on the strength of my (still small) portfolio, so I guess I'm doing something right! Ultimately I hope to use this forum as a tool in my self-teaching, so I may continue to evolve and improve in my new career.
