Hello, thank you for visiting my post. I'm here today looking for some advice really. I'm almost 18, and I've been interested in doing graphic design for a while now. I was looking to study at college but some health problems have basically set me back a lot. I wanted to try and get a head start before I decide to go and apply again, and study some stuff at home. I'm not really sure where to start. I'll be needing a portfolio to get in to college but again, wouldn't really know where to begin in regards to types or work that I would have to use. I've done a lot of google-ing around and have found a few nice sites like psdtuts+ that offer a course outline etc, but I thought it might be a good idea to try and get some advice from people who are already in the industry. So anyways, if anyone could give me any advice on what I'd have to study and/or what I need for a port, I'd be very appreciative. Cheers!
