in a few weeks it is time to start your first day of Design school, or simply go back to school, or start your last semester before graduation.
In any case I want you to be concentrate on: discipline, exercising always a lot, portfolio
If you are just starting school you might want to understand very fast that being disciplined and exercising a lot will help you to start with the right foot.
If you are going back to school to continue your courses be concentrated and more demanding with yourself, remember your are looking for quality not just quantity. You will probably prepare for an internship, too. So your portfolio needs quality!
If you are going back to finish and get your Bachelor be concentrated on professionalism and management of yourself to put together the best portfolio ever! Do not forget you are preparing to look for a job and soon you will start interviews…. so CV & Portfolio must be top!
It is quite a bit I have this idea in my mind to organize a Live Workshop someday somewhere for you!
To talk about sketching tutorials, basics of drawing, how to improve your admition design school portfolio n order to prepare you “before” you get admitted to a Design school.
Something like 10 hours (2 days) with of course a little cost to it.
What do you think?
To understand if I will organize it please answer to the poll on the right to give me an idea or comment of Facebook blog page.
