I’ve been made redundant and need help getting back into graphic design
I graduated in Fashion Promotion a few years ago. During the course I realised that my passion lies in graphic design - I found this out because I had to produce illustrations, magazines and more as part of it.
I have been working for the past three years as a creative director for a start-up company, creating all their promotional and branding imagery, as well as countless textile designs for the company. However, it has fallen into financial trouble and I have been made redundant. I am finding it extremely difficult to find another job in graphic design as my degree is not directly related and I haven't studied web design or HTML.
I really need some advice on where to go from here. I also complete digital illustration work in my spare time and it is a big passion of mine. I have ended up working back in retail as this is the only job experience I had before my degree, and as a creative person I am finding it very difficult. I don't know what course would be right for me to help me along the way and if there is any point looking into a graphic design degree when I already have a degree in fashion promotion.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
