I am a designer living in Washington DC whose job is driving him insane. I work for a giant engineering ﬁrm and people come to me with Powerpoint presentations they’ve tried to do themselves, and ask me to make a poster / brochure / display out of them. (Oh, the pain.)
But YOU can help!
I am looking for advice about the best (for me) graduate programs in graphic design in the U.S. or Canada. I have an undergrad degree in Advertising, but it was more of a business-focused program. So I’m looking for a school that has a practical, professional orientation, as opposed to one that stresses theory / research. Basically, I’d like to take this degree and go work for a design ﬁrm.
I have several years of design and production experience in in-house design departments at medium-sized companies, (as well as having done a bunch of freelance work) so I don’t need to start from the beginning, with a Bachelor’s design degree.
I am leaning towards Pratt.
Any thoughts / advice / resources? Feel free to plug your alma mater or diss other schools — it’s all good.
