Design Cities?

Hi everyone,

I just graduated recently in visual communication design in Ohio. Now I am looking to relocate, since I am from Germany and I am not too attached to the midwest.

So I was wondering if people could share their experiences with other design communities in the US. What about design organizations, the general attitude of people and companies, and other impressions.

What I am looking for is a place to grow with a vibrant community that’s up-to-date with the latest developments, and of course it would be nice if the job market wasn’t on the ground.

So what’s the word?
