First off, thank you all for the advice it does help out in the long run and I’ll definitely take it in stride. All of you in one form or another are correct in where to gather resources and information on designing. Now I just need to get some paid projects.
I’ve been quite busy lately learning some new things. Someone asked me on LinkedIn if I used Bootstrap and I told them no and it made me mad so I learned it in about 2 hours. I actually kind of like it, makes scratch-work designing so much simpler and quicker. Anyways, Thanks again, much obliged.
