Just wondering if anyone here has taken a year off of school or work. I didn't make design school with my portfolio last year so I am attempting again, and also applying to other schools this year. If I don't make any design school, I am thinking of simply taking a year off of school. Possibly get a job, travel, learn about myself, explore art and design more to create an even better portfolio, and try again. Is this a good idea? PS - If any designers are here, PM me. I want you to review my portfolio when the time comes.
