Answer: This is how I got started… (http://www.joeculver.co.uk)Create a website that will act as a showcase for your work. Graphic design is a very well paid job, and employers will expect a full portfolio of work before hiring you. Before starting a freelancing company, I offered free design and development of websites, banners, and illustrations, on the condition that I could attach my signature, and showcase them in my portfolio. It took a while, but ultimately you build a reputation and a solid book of work, that makes you very “employable”. You can get recommendations and references from the people you worked for. Chances are as you did it for free, they will be very kind in their words.Your portfolio only has to be around 5-10 examples depending on the complexity… I would recommend working for a company before freelancing, to get the experience, and the mark on your Resume that says you worked for “so and so graphic design”.Although the market is full of potential employees, there a not that many that can actually back it up with a decent portfolio, experience and qualifications.If your good, and your prepared to be patient and build a career you will do very well. If your expecting to get well paid job, based on a qualification alone, I think you need to re-think some things as you won’t last….Good luck with it!
