Two months after graduating college is probably not the best time to discover an interest in a brand new profession. I have not even received my degree in the mail, yet, I'm already wondering if I should start on another!
Truthfully, it started before now. The spark of interest lit while I was but a wee intern. One day at the office, I found myself enjoying some downtime between projects. My supervisor kept helpful reads around the office to inspire creatives out of writer's block and to fuel brainstorming binges. I picked up a mag called HOW Design (http://www.howdesign.com/) and did some harmless digging into the colorfully branded content. When I'd only made halfway through the first article, I decided to take it home for some evening reading. Dun Dun Duhhhh...
Welp, here I am graduated with my eyes equally divided between my T4i and any graphic design literature I can find. My love affair with storytelling and cinema is being matched by font collecting and web designing. What is a Mass Comm student to do? Is it wrong to place equal emphasis on effective branding AND the media that markets the brand?
No hasty decisions here. I love the profession I've chosen. But, it has been made apparent that my creative interest lies in more outlets than acting and filming, but also headlines and info-graphics. I'll save my pursuit of a graphic design education for when I reach my midlife crisis (hey, it's better than selling my house for a boat).
