  • Hey Zaha welcome to the forum.

    What do you mean exactly?

    In terms of picking up work or starting your own business?

    Specialize.

    Be THE graphic designer for _______.

    Who do you like talking with all day?

    What kind of people?

    In what fields?

    Don't try to be a generalist. It's better to specialize. And the people and topics you surround yourself with daily will determine your happiness or unhappiness. So don't let this choice be made by default.

    If you're a graphic designer you could try making an account for various print-on-demand clothing websites (Zazzle.com / teespring.com / cafepress.com / etc).

    You pretty much make designs and upload them to blank products. If someone likes your design, they buy it and you earn a commission. It's free to get started and you could create a facebook page to advertise your designed products.

    Just an idea.

    Zaha you have a few options. You can:

    1) Sell your services on Fiverr

    3) Sell your services as a "WSO" on this forum

    4) Sell your services in the "Warriors For Hire" section on this forum

    5) Sell your services on your own website (so study up on internet marketing)

    6) Become diversified in the type of graphics you choose to make

    7) etc.

    These are just a few. It's up to you how to proceed. Good luck! And good job graduating from college.

    If I was a graphic designer targeting IMers I would be posting free branded examples for other people to use (AKA advertising).
