Nowadays it is even easier, you have you tube tutorials for starters, i would have paid good money to watch over the shoulder of an experienced designer. I ate slept & dreamt design stuff and html,adobe and the now demised Macromedia where like my only friends. After 10 years of working for other people i am now freelance. I think if your going to do design for print, get some experience working in a print shop (what ever it is)just to get used to the terminology & paper stocks

Also, even if you do go to school, these points still apply. Self direction, self study, pushing yourself, are necessary qualities for success in either case. There is so much to learn from books and your own experiments outside the classroom. Thx.

I totally agree with point #5, because that’s how I initially started. I used to work as a Web Design Volunteer for Non-Profit Organizations and then, once I had hands-on experience, I started taking up paid projects.

I did almost everything mentioned in this post. Wonderful Article.
