i am...i mostly work with corporate communications...but i've done everything over the years...

just go out and do it...don't listen to what other people say...and learn the basics...typogrpaphy...grids...how to use photography...etc...and read books - they will make you a smarter designer...jv

I am a graphic artist in the tv/movie field (no print stuff). So if you have questions with that end of the spectrum, let me know.

I play one on tv ;)

I do freelance actually, but I'm more in the 3D arena lately, I've done quite a bit of stuff, video, web, animation, print, etc., but I'm not anywhere near 25 though.

Let me know if you need anything.

Yes I am.

That would be me. I am a graphic design professional. I work at an advertising agency. Lucky for me I get to do everything that I love from print to multimedia. And I own another design agency that specilizing in digital video (from post-production editing to special effects) and web/design. What is your question? (since you now know everything that you did not care to know. ;) )

Yeah, I've got a degree in graphic design, but my passion has now turned more towards web design and mac troubleshooting... :rolleyes:

Me too!

Yeah, I'll be 25 on Dec. 18th. I graduated with a BFA, mostly drawing and painting, but did computer work on the side. Now I'm the Graphic Designer of Prospect Theater Co. (small company, but quality shows!) And I've done all their posters, brochures and postcards using Quark & Photoshop (Wish I coulsd afford a new PowerMac to get InDesign free:( ). There are a zillion small theater companies in New York City, and all of them need designers. Any questions, let me know.
