I Need Help

Hello peoples,

I am new to posting around here. I have been a prospect to the design world for awhile and I have no idea where to begin. But heres my hang up. I want to do the craftsmanship, the shaping, the structure, etc. I am a huge fan of the Machine Age desgin like so …

but was this something done as individuals, large corporations, etc? Ok that was the past but today, who does this anymore? Where? How does one start?
I’m ready for school and i have experience in machinary,welding, building,etc. but where do i start?
Any information would be a BIG help cause I’m lost. I ready to go but i have no direction.

Thank you’s to all of you for keepin design alive!
