The average age at which kids start to use a computer is becoming lower, that is why I see sometimes great jobs made by fifteen years old guys. In my case starting to use Photoshop at 20 years was almost discouraging at the beginning. But surfing through the net I discovered one of the best graphic designers, who is of mine best preferred still now, Nik Ainley. In his about page Nik says that he decided to be a graphic designer only after he get his university physics degree.
At Student Art Guide high school students blog and present their projects that they create. This particular project is typography design. My advanced graphic design class create a Masthead logo design for magazine design. A masthead is a logo created primarily from type. A very essential project for student graphic designers.
