I've been studying
Filling my brain with knowledge and other fancy words I have collected here
I can mostly do raster graphics, but I have some minimal experience in vector logo design as well.
Almost everything I have designed over the years, I have been involved with myself as well. The need for designing came from a practical need, I've never actually studied or worked in the field.
I just never thought that I don't have the skills, only ideas to realize.
My Own Project
I was looking for a live page to develop on my free time to put my skills into use right away
Ended up working on a MediaWiki site for almost two months now. Started from scratch and now slowly developing live site and creating content for it. The Project
One of the things I have learned the most is something I didn't even think about when starting the project - combating spam from non-human visitors.
It has been one semester since I started, everything is new and still trying to figure out exactly what aspects of the field I like the most. But I keep learning new things daily and developing my skills as I walk by this new road in my life.
