Print design is where I started. Friends and family were always asking me to make flyers, banners, cards and invitations for them. I always had an eye for what looked good, even before any formal training. Before going into graphic design, I was even the employee that was assigned to print up the calenders, newsletters and flyers for special events.
Once I had formal training in graphic design, I started freelancing as soon as possible. I started with some volunteer work & moved on to paid jobs about halfway into my degree. After getting a job with a web design company, I was pleased to still have print jobs every now-and-then. Now that I'm a freelance designer again, I'm happy to have more print production projects than when I was at the web design company.
