What to look foward to when first starting school for Graphic Design

Posted: May 3, 2013 in Uncategorized

When you first start school for Graphic design and for many other fields of design too the first thing you have to understand is that you must learn the basics of design in general not just your field of study. So don’t go in thinking the first thing you will do is hop on the computer and start designing things. The first years in the collage of design at Iowa State all go through the core program which teaches you the basics of design such as drawing and layouts to building stuff. You must also be ready for the amount of time you will be spending not doing what you think you signed up to do. For your first year and even into the first half of your next year you will almost never touch a computer and do most of your work by hand.  But don’t be discouraged and keep striving along and you will make it.
