Hey guys, My name is Liam and i'm 21 years old. For the last few months I've been thinking hard about what i want to do in life as a job/career, and becoming a Graphic Designer would be like a dream come true for me. The only trouble is, because of my circumstances, college and university are a no go for me, because i have a little girl and a house to look after. I work full time to keep a roof over our heads, but i don't want to be stuck in this same job all my life. Because of the above, the only option i seem to have is to study and learn from home. Listed below is the software i have already got installed on my laptop, which i have been told, i will need to get me started: Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 Adobe InDesign CS5 Adobe Illustrator CS5 Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 Macromedia Flash 8 Obviously what i am missing is someone to teach me how to use all this software properly so i can get the full potential out of them. I know there are tutorials online but what i really need is some help getting started and a bit of guidance. I understand that it could take years an years for me to learn how these programs work properly and train myself how to crack on with a new design. But i am very willing to learn and to be honest, do not care how long it takes! Like i said before. Becoming a Graphic Designer would be a dream for me, and now i feel it's time to follow that dream while i'm still young. If anyone could help me out or point me in the right direction, i would be so much appreciated!
