How to become a designer without going to design school | Karen X. Cheng

After attending business school I just don't know if I have it in me to go back into a classroom setting. However as a creative entrepreneur it is critical that I hone my design skills. I came across this article and was excited to see someone document the steps they took to self-educate. I'm a fan of paying your dues and perfecting your craft so, for anyone wanting a career as a designer, if formal education and training is possible then I'd go that route. However, if that isn't a feasible option, for whatever reason, it's encouraging to know that there are other routes you can take to reach your creative career goals!

Who knows if we'll make that dream happen but, for now, it's exciting to see the innovation happening in the publishing industry despite all the "print is dead" predictions.
