hey all. I'm new here, and so far, I really like everything you guys have going on this site. Lemme tell you a bit about myself. I am currently 17 years old (turn 18 next March (yay!)), and am an aspiring graphic designer. I am enrolled in the second, and final, year of a Visual Communications course at my county's vocational school, after which I plan on going to Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica, NY to get my 2-yr. degree in, obviously, graphic design. Other than graphic design, I play a Peavey Patriot 4-string bass for my really cool band (no demo tapes yet), and I am addicted to the strategy game "StarCraft: Brood War". I enjoy taking long strolls on the beach, and I consider myself a hopeless romantic :) lol sorry, got a little carried away with myself. Anyhue (little graphic designer joke), thanks for reading my excruciatingly long self-description, and I hope to meet you all here in the forums.


P.S.-My name is Cliff :)

I'm sure I speak for everyone here when I say "Welcome". We'll look forward to seeing your work up on the block for public flogging. er... critique. Consider it your initiation.

Hi Cliff,

Nice to see another person from Upstate NY. I grew up in Schenectady, but I live out in San Francisco these days (for the moment, anyway).

If you haven't already, you ought look into a summer program run out of Ithaca for high school students that dealt with graphic design, especially video and interactive (albeit when interactive meant "flashy read-only 'multimedia'") design. A friend of mine went through such a program and really enjoyed it. I don't remember much about it, but I'll see if I can get you more details if you're interested.

I thought the first rule of Font Club was "Don't Type About Font Club."

And the second rule of Font Club is "Don't Type About Font Club."

but Brad Pitt is just a figment of our imagination, so we can type what we want.
