I figured it out

Okay, so I figured out what I want to do when I get done with school. I want to go into the fine arts area of graphic design. At least that's what I refer to it in my head. I want to get my Master's and learn how to design unique and groundbreaking things. I want to reach the next level in design.

I think one of things I'm having trouble with lately is that I've kind of plateaued in that I understand all the technical skills and I don't want to be just a corporate or soulless designer. I want my work to say something and at AIP it's not really about that.

AIP is more about getting you a job than artistic expression, which I kind of understood when I came here, but now I really understand. I know why I keep getting bored with my assignments, they aren't challenging... at least not in the artistic expression type of way.

I think that's why I keep having weird thoughts about getting bored with graphic design, because I keep thinking that this is what my life will be like. It really really won't.

I don't want to be a mass producer of flyers or posters, I want to be innovative and understand something and I think going to get my masters will do that....



...Sorry got distracted, but I know what I want to do and I know where I want to go and now I have to figure out how to get there.
