For as long as I’ve been following this site, it’s a shame I haven’t been involved sooner. But here’s why I’m reaching out now:
ID is not new to me, but up until completing my undergrad (in 2009) it wasn’t the career path I was gravitating towards. Over the past number of years those ambitions have progressively changed and I’m ready to go back to school specifically for ID. My undergrad degree is in Industrial Engineering in a program that focused on product development. In addition to that, I spent my senior year taking product design courses for fun (because hey, that’s why we got into it in the first place!) so I do have some basic background.
I’m looking for some guidance and feedback from the Core77 community on developing the basic ID skills to create an awesome portfolio (from scratch). Any specific projects or studies that you all found helpful during your schooling or career that you would be willing to share is greatly appreciated. Some of my fairly recent stuff is online at marcsweet.com, but these images were entirely just for fun. Now I’m ready to get down to business.
I have plenty of time and motivation to work on anything thrown my way, so expect frequent responses if things start moving! Thanks in advance for all the fun!
