If you’re an every-tuesday email subscriber, you’re already aware my ebook on tips and advice for obtaining a full time graphic design job will become officially available later this month. In preparation of its launch, I wanted to dedicate this month’s Tuesdays to sharing portfolio tips I’ve learned from my own experiences in a free portfolio tips video series.

I’ve had a few comments and emails asking how I got started, how I knew graphic design was the right major for me, and what I would tell people who might be on the fence about a career in graphic design (and if jobs are available for graphic designers) today.
