What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I study Adobe Creative Suite software updates, I read industry magazines to stay on top of design, technology, and marketing trends, and I mostly self teach myself.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Watching the movie "Toy Story" as a teenager made me want to be in the field of graphic design versus fine art.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Designing and maintaining websites, designing logos, business cards/stationary set, brochures, rack cards, greeting cards, banners, email blasts, web video editing, etc.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Check out the designer's portfolio, whether if it's attachments in emails or links to their online portfolio. Don't give money upfront without a written, signed contract.
