    I have some experience with HTML and javascript, and have recently been experimenting with Blender 3D and Adobe Photoshop, and I am interested in doing some work in the graphics design fields. What skills do I need to develop or classes do I need to take to become a competative graphic design artist?

    Also, which area would you recommend?

    I have lots of experience and I’m talented in photography but when it comes to drawing I’m a little…well not talented. Will my lack of drawing capabilities hinder my graphic design capability? If not what is the cheapest way to start learning?

  6. There isn’t a straightforward answer to this question – like any art-related field, it depends on your skill level. If your skills are very average, your salary will be the same, or you may struggle to find work as a freelancer. If you’re good at what you do, you will be in a lot of demand and make a very good wage. A natural flair for design will be of great assistance to you. If you have that and the subject really interests you then go for it – just be aware that what you get out of it will be a reflection of how hard you work on your skills. 🙂

  7. Graphic Design for Print: Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator are required the most, InDesign (Magazine/Newsletter Layout). As a graphic designer for print, it would probably help if you knew the basics about printing, so maybe get a job in a print shop first as a prepress production artist. That will definitely help you as a graphic designer. Other than that, try to learn photoshop and illustrator as much as you can. For a website designer, you should know Macromedia Dreamweaver/Fireworks and you’re already on the right track with experience in HTML & Java. Hope this helps.

  8. The best place to start learning is the library. Your only hindrance will be yourself. Classes at a junior college will help take you further or buy yourself a simple graphic design program and teach yourself the basics. Good luck
