Whats your education?

Graphic design has been my hobby for many years and luckily over the time it has become also my job which I really enjoy. I have been a self learner (reading design related books and of course internet has been my other teacher).

Hey! Did anyone go to RISD? I graduated from there in '91. Good school. What they taught us then is a lot different than the work you see now.
So, The Rhode Island School of Design is possibly the finest Graphc Design School in America.
Their graduates are unlikely to be working crowd source contests.
That parchment will get you through the doors of any agency and/or studio in the country.
I hired some big design schools grads (not RISD) back in the 1980s. Unfortunately, they were not yet teaching any computer courses.
I hired them as pasteup artists, after a year they could get real design jobs because they proved that they could show up and work.
Art graduates did not have a great reputation for taking instruction or work reliability.
Now, i think the big agencies look at interns for future hiring.
(though trained as "architects" they worked hands on as "carpenters."
Talking to a few years later, they said it was good training.

Graphic Design degree at Accademia di Belle Arti di Catania, plus more experience in digital arts (game graphics/pixel-art, music composition, illustration/drawing, coding on different freeware engines) individually developed.
Before the degree at the academy I studied accounting, though, at a local high school in Ragusa, as it was the only school whose lessons were close to what I was looking for (computers, information technology and similar subjects...).
I also worked for a game softwarehouse in Catania, but now I only make indie videogames which I release for free on my site, while I prefer to make design as my job.

A while ago it became apparent that a really fine design talent needed Illustrator/Photohops skills to succeed.
Now, talented designers need to have great coding skills as well.
It is clear that the success for talented people is going to require an ever larger skill set.
It is a moving target.
I see no end to it.
Evan small town local designers will be eaten alive by "Amazon" level design studios.
You need to be extremely talented, serious and intelligent to compete.
Sophisticated piracy, stock art and artificial intelligence will be a continous concern.
As such, I do not recommend graphic design as a college major.
Only the super stars in your class are evan likely to partially recover the cost of education.
Your completion is Google, Facebook and Chinese intelectual property pirates.
Sorry if this seems unduly pessimistic, but young designers need a really big plan "B".
There, I said it. I really did not want today such to tis audience on this forum.
I had really hoped for more hope. It is not on the horizon.

Speaking about it, my friend from India now do his mbbs studies in Ukraine https://leader-education.com/. He told me that the conditions are even better than in his motherland and the prices are actually low! So I decided to do some research on this subject to help young people to choose good universities with accessible conditions abroad. Do you know any?

I am a historian by training, but I am very interested in web design. I am really interested it this topic. And I think it's great opportunity to learn something new using online resourses. Today one can also easily get help with his studies using free apps or services such on which you can https://essayyoda.com/best-essay-help/ or place an order for other complex written work. Wide choice makes the process easier and more productive.
