Default Graphic Design

So I'm a Graphic Design major going to Iowa State University (who would have guessed). Just wondering if there are any other Graphic Designers in here? What do you do for a living?

Yup.

Graphic designer for 10 years now. I do print (brochures, icons, etc) in an in-house creative services team for a fortune 500 company. I love print design, I like be able to hold my creations. Web/electronic is flashy and cool, but you can't physically touch your work, and work with die cuts and creative folding techniques. Different inks, different varnished, spot UV gloss varnish over spot UV dull, awesome.

Some of my work: http://www.wdesignstudios.com/portfolioprint.html

Dropped out of graphic design school in 1995. I decided to get into healthcare instead. Bad decision.

Graphic artist/web designer for 14+ years... Found my niche recently in online marketing.

Comes in real handy for designing labels and tap markers!

Don't know about Graphic Designers, but there are other ISU grads.

I am not a designer, but I am married to one! My wife currently does motion graphic work for Disney. Her passion is print work, but it is a slowly dying industry. She decided to learn up on Flash, AfterEffects, and even advanced Keynote.

It was the best professional choice she ever made!

I'm a graphic and web designer. Been running a small design studio in Ontario for almost 8 years now. I do a bit of print, some branding and marketing as well. It's an enjoyable industry to be in.

Graphic/web/UI designer here. Graduated in May and have been looking for an industry job ever since, but I've been doing freelance work in the interim.
