For the past 2 months I have been looking for a job and applying to a variety of places. Then two weeks ago I was offered a position at a graphic store here in town to be both a graphic artist and a production artist! Seeing that I have a degree in art communications, I was thrilled to have a job where I could use my degree!
The majority of my job consists of doing graphic art, but there are times when I help out with production. This past week I helped lay text for a 20′ x 8′ billboard sign. It was the largest sign I have worked on yet and was quite challenging at times but fun too!
In the photo below you can better see how large the sign is in comparison to the tape measure and my co-worker.
When I’m not helping out with production, I get to do the fun stuff…graphic art! There are times when I will lay out invoice forms, which isn’t the most exciting thing, but their are other times when I get to get to create t-shirts, business cards, banners, signs, etc.. and that’s where I thrive! Below are examples of the two extremes.
Overall, I am so very thankful for this position and look forward to all the new things I will create and learn!
