I am looking to get into Graphics more seriously. I have been doing this as an avocation but now I'm thinking of doing this professionaly. Can anyone reccomend good graphic design course or school? Do you know how much is the tuition approximately? And any other tips?

Thanks!

Hi Sonichka,

Unless you're willing to relocate pretty much anywhere in the world it would help us if you told us where are you located.

Unless you can get into Otis or Art Center College Of Design in Pasadena etc don't even bother. Those art schools you see advertised on TV?...hell no. Tuition tends to be on the high end but not any more than any prestigious university. You'll probably learn more from doing an internship with a service bureau, or design firm than you'd ever learn from a design school anyway. Unless you got into the above mentioned schools.

Lobo,
 I will be living either in the New York area or Florida. I might have some flexibility.

There is a good design school in NY, you could check around there but i dont remember the name of it.

As for an internship, grab a phone book and cold call a a few design studios. Start at the bottom sweeping floors, and work your way up. Just make sure they know what your goals are. The pay, if any, wont be great, but at least youre not shelling out tuition to someone who starts each class with "ok now boys and girls, today we're going to learn how to use Eye Candy".

Hi Sonichka,

Not close enough, I'm afraid. I could suggest a couple good schools in Toronto, Canada; but I'm afraid I don't know what I would recommend in NYC or Florida.

Good luck in your search!
