Can I combine graphic design with digital skills?
Heather needs to know which design route to take
I graduated with an MA in Photography in 2006. Since then I have been lucky enough to work at an internationally known contemporary photogrpahy gallery and more recently a national museum.
When my contract at the museum came to an end it made me think about taking a different career path. I have experience in arts administration, and the roles I've had, had a diverse work load from events management, exhibition installation, front of house supervision to project management.
I think that I could follow the events/project management route which has transferable skills, but the creative/artistic side of me wants to pursue a new career within design...possibly graphic design for advertising & web.
What route into the design industry could I take? Do I need a degree or will something like a Foundation degree do?
Also as everything is going digital are there courses out there that combine graphic design with web/digital skills?
