I find myself back where it all began, almost 4-5 years from today.
I started using photoshop around 13-14 to create forum signatures (yea... I’m getting old 😂), then got into photo editing, making a few flyers here & there in high school.
When I got to college, I volunteered as a graphic designer for @ggc_greenlight and my coworkers & bosses fostered me into becoming a graphic designer.
I used to HATE getting up in the morning and looking at all the flyers & brochures & signs I had to figure out how to make before the end of the day or some crazy deadline, but I was always able to persevere cuz I was in a great work environment.
I look back on those moments now and think of how silly I was for taking all of that for granted... it really defines who I am and who I want to be.
Years later, I am helping @goldman_eagle serve their clients w/ web & graphic design services, freelancing & grinding it out til my income is substantial.
This is the type of graphic design I got a reputation for. Not flyers, business cards, or stickers, literally just designs for signs, or little images on websites from folks that needed a quick turnaround. 😂 this is the bread & butter of what I do.
Never devalue your work & efforts. The same work I used to groan at years ago feels like the oppprtunity of a lifetime now. 😂😂 #graphicdesign #designcollateral #squarespace #graphics
