Do any of you lovelies do Web Design career wise? I've thrown the idea of going for a Media College Major around in my head for years, but after doing some freelance, I didn't like the idea of...well doing it freelance heh. I've also done some work for my boyfriends mothers book site
years ago.. (so ignore the old layout, it's not nearly one of my best.) and it was somewhat fun, but frustrating at the same time (not going to lie). I didn't mind it so much because I got a lot more creative freedom. I did do the most tacky website ever for something that seemed very much like a pyramid scam back in 2006 -_-. (thinking back) He wanted it tacky...with American flags slapped all over it, and I died a little inside when he said that hehe. I made very little for any of these projects, since I undersold my work. And thinking back, I was a wad for doing so, as way more work goes into making a website than people who have no experience in it think. It's infuriating when I name a price, and they are like "I'll go elsewhere."...good luck, any legit person will charge you a lot more than me.
However, thinking of working within a company environment seems a bit more appealing to me. I just don't want to do the whole "6 month contract" crap that most people in the "Art" fields have to.
Seneca teaches a media arts program that centers around it, as well as Sheridan, and they are 1-2 year courses, which is also appealing. I also know a fair amount about design already, granted, I know I will be completely lost on some parts, but I am a fast learner. I already know I can get into Seneca, since I had gotten accepted there in 2006...wish I had the money to go at the time....Sheridan is litreally across the street from Austin's apartment, which is also very appealing. :)
I just never settled on web-design stuff because it seemed like I would be making a hobby into work...and I wasn't sure it would bode well. However, the prospect is appealing when I think about it in an office setting.
In other news. I've got a new blog set up and ready to go. I'll be starting over new if this May thing goes well in NYC. I want to start with a clean slate..sort of re-invent myself since nobody knows me here. :) I look forward to it. *crosses fingers*
