5. What are your concerns about industrial experience?
What will be my main area of graphic design to focus on in terms of finding a subject I will feel most confident and comfortable working in.
What area of the world I want to work in, I don’t want to live in the U.K much longer and I would love to move abroad, What areas offer what? in terms of the trade I decided to go into.
With the current economy it gets harder ever day to afford things, I would love to travel from city to city visiting different studios but funding it could be difficult. It’s hard to get your work out into the public eye without paying the cost.
Do I have enough experience and skills to be accepted in the area I want to work in? It’s hard to gain recognition without experience and backing, so having this extra boost would be a big help.
