Through My Wanderings I have come to find a website that grabs my attention. I see the community and feel compelled to join. And so the journey begins...

Just to give some history about myself I am 17 and am graduating high school in May 2006. In light of my age, many shrug off the notion of me knowing anything about design, and, yes, it is true that to some degree I am still in training.

However, in addition to 7 years of experience with Photoshop, 2 years with Illustrator, and one year with InDesign and Quark, I have 5 years of true job experience doing consistent artwork for a respectible screenprinting company on a freelance basis. In addition to this side job, I work at a very large printing company through a Youth Apprenticeship Program where I work in color correction, logo creation and recreation, page layout, and advertising design. Furthermore, I design, albeit amatuerly, website for local businesses. I am currently in the process of creating my own digital portfolio and will link to it in my signature eventually.

On another note...all that was probably not necessary. I could have just as easily said Thanks for welcoming me to the community. Oh well... :)

Impressed, indeed. I hope my kids have that much drive when they get to be your age (man I sound old).

I wish that I had that kind of focus when I was that age. It has taken me a while to find what I really want to do (I'm currently 30!:eek: ), and something that would be more than just a job.

I, too, am very impressed.;) And don't worry. No one here will shrug you off. I think it would be fair to say that most of us could learn a few things from you. Just take a look at some of the questions posted!

Welcome to the forums. We are certainly glad to have you!:D

Again, Thanks for the welcome!
