Teaching myself Graphic Design


#1
Hey guys! I have been learning graphic design for the past four months and would love to chat with other designers in training.

I am 22 years old, I studied Film & Photography at college but now have decided to change paths. It took me a while to figure out I wanted to go into graphic design, but when I started the basics it has just lead me to want to learn more and more. My hobbies are and have always been photography, drawing, problem-solving and sometimes writing. So maybe I was meant to be a Graphic Designer.

Love to talk to other starters just like myself, look forward to hearing from you!

Welcome for the forum. I too came from a film/media course, now I'm a full-time designer. Ironically I still enjoy photography as a hobby and want to get back into film/documentaries as side projects.

Hello, Thank you for posting. That's great to hear. How did you get into design? Did you go onto a course or teach yourself?
