Hey everyone. This is my first post here, and hopefully not my last. The situation is that I will be entering college once the semester of my senior year ends. I expect of majoring in Graphic Design, and will hopefully go for a scholarship or two at the Art University of Houston. (lolmoney)
First thing's first, I've been working with Photoshop, and some other Adobe products since my Freshman year, however I was never formally taught anything. The way our classes worked was we were told to work on certain tutorials, then present what we finished at the due date. This doesn't quite seem to be a good introductory way to teach, in my opinion, but it's what I've to expect in college, so best to start somewhere.
What is to come in college with graphic design classes? What are the basic skills I will need when I enter, and what should I learn beforehand? I don't want to enter a course with my current knowledge, only to discover I'm below what is expected upon entry, and fall behind.
Also, I'd post some work, but unfortunately anything I can find is from when I first started, so it's... yeah. I haven't had any graphic design classes in high school for a while, so I haven't had many opportunities to practice outside of class.
Thanks in advance!
