Hi Jaylen,

I'm a user experience designer, and hopefully, my experience is somewhat relevant to you to be a graphic designer. In college, I started helping my friend who needed a logo and website design. I charge a small amount of money to maintain the relationship professionally instead of just helping as a friend. From there, I started building my portfolio and reached out to companies to seek any internship opportunities. By the time I graduated from college, I had a solid foundational experience starting as a junior-level designer, which helped me find a full-time job as a designer. I also took some visual design classes at school to learn how design professionals use tools and work in the corporate environment. Hopefully, you can start your career as a designer soon!

Jaylen,
Pursue graphic design. Learn Illustrator and other design programs. You are in NY and there are opportunities for classes at colleges you could look into on Saturdays, summer program, online. I wish you success and enjoyment in whatever you do!

Hi Jaylen. Although being a logo designer is a worthwhile discipline within the field of design unless you’re like Paul Rand, Saul Bass, Milton Glaser, Tom Geismar, Ivan Chermayeff it may take you a while to get the kind of success that would make logo design on its own a career. Visit this site to read about some of the iconic designs that have created some of the most memorable and still in use logo designs. Consider the wider field of branding within design with its broader scope encompasses logo design as part of its overall domain. I suggest reading and learning about designers of the present and the past to no only gain knowledge but also in a self-driven way add to your education in this field.
