    wow... that sounds like a place i had an interview at last year. i wonder if its the same company. they made furniture stuff like desks and whatnot. i think the position i was trying for was in user support/help desk/networking.

    anyway... i consider myself a freelance designer. i do flyers for my friend who is a promoter and i also promote. in the past i have done websites in flash and etc. but that was a while ago when i was in high school.

    Yeah, that's basically what I do......I love my job, but I'm reaching for a position at Universal Studios Hollywood...that's my dream job, I've spoke to the art director, and the job sounds SO DAMN KOOL - I'm hoping it goes as planned.

    Thanks BB, I'm hoping it all goes through!! But I might start out as a carpenter (since Universal burned down a week or so ago)..then this way, I can edge myself into the graphics department.

    I'm an freelance artist with education in illustration/graphic design. I have put aside all my work at this point and I'm focusing on developing a site that will become my gallery. I want to estabolish an online gallery for not only my self but for other artists who want to display and possibly sell there work. It's going to be interesting.

    Thumbs up

    The experience of a graphic designer may vary a lot, from one to one. The degree we got is hughly focused but the skills we learn may be spent almost everywhere.
    Look here http://www.design-training.com/game-...ners-work.html here are only the major graphic designer jobs, to these I'll add the freelance experience, as I am, but I've got to say that if you don't have some ready contacts it could be quite hard. The best thing you can do is to get experience in a business, make some contacts, then leave and work on your own.
