Stick with design.  Especially if you're self-taught.  After a while, it gets daunting and you'll want to give up.  If you stick with it, the payoff is worth it.

Hey thanks! Right now it is all self-taught. Nice to go to school and learn basics, but that requires $.

I'm self taught also, and for a while it got really hard to keep doing it because there was little to no reward.  Then I worked my butt off at a basic portfolio and landed a full-time job doing it.  It was a lot of work, but it pays off every day.

Thanks Samuel, that is encouraging.  Patience is key indeed.

Study up.

Even if you can't/don't want to go to school, there's still no excuse not to learn about the craft. If you don't know the basics of design theory, color theory typography, etc. then start there. Study the masters. Study different areas of design. Look at others work for inspiration, then figure out how to do it on your own. 

There is no excuse for bad design. Learn the fundamentals and make stuff that looks good.

Thanks Doug - so far I've been doing that for the last 3 years...little by little and still learning more.

Then keep it up. 

I would also encourage you to practice, but practice good habits. Practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect. Keep practicing the fundamentals and pushing your self.

Thanks Doug.  For every graphic project I am doing (which is all voluntary at the moment), my goal is to learn and do something new.  Again, appreciate the advice and encouragement!

Stay humble: even if you start to feel like you have a good grasp on things, you have to work hard to get places. You have to always maintain a healthy balance between confidence and cockiness! Take any learning/mentoring opportunity you can!

Thanks Laura for the advice.  Definitely good points.  Where can one find a mentor?

You must be skilled at visual depiction however as it is one
of the more business aspects of configuration there is more risk of bringing
home the bacon. It can be extend periods of time yet the work is fascinating
and fluctuated and there are a lot of chances to succeed. Essay.Mania. The
best thing would be to check whether you could wangle some work involvement in
an illustrations organization (most likewise do inside configuration, bundling,
handout work and so forth and see what you think.

I have a suggestion, if you want to get a good inspiration to do the great design, you should take a few minutes to find references from external websites, or other reference of tv,magazines, etc. I do not mean to patronize, but as a fellow graphic designer, I would be happy to help anyone. The difference is I am currently working in graphic design jakarta. You may have tried to relax or meditate because it can make you more fresh. Hopefully these tips will make you a great graphic designer, cheers.
