What advice do you have for new designers? Because I work with web designing everyday at work, I can't stress enough how important it is that you learn Search Engine Optimization (SEO) before you design your first website. Espeically, if your search engine placement is important to you or your clients. A site must be designed based on your SEO "requirements". If it's not, you can have problems down the road.

Web and Graphic Design is really fun. A great way to make money from home while taking care of your kids. Don't be afraid to ask questions, whatever the question is. We all started somewhere and had the same questions our selves. Enjoy and good luck.

Anything else you'd like to share? I've always been the type of person that liked to know how things work. So naturally, when I became addicted to the internet I just had to know how all these websites worked, and how I could make my own. So over the years I taught myself how to do it and I am still learning as I go along. I started out by doing small personal websites, then did my own for my business. It then grew into friends asking me to do their business website, and I eventually started offering some services through my store. Just recently I created my new website to separate my web services from my slings and other items. It's still a work in progress, but it's getting there. I especially love doing designs for people on Hyena Cart.

Hi all! Thought I'd introduce myself here.

Name: Michelle
Birthdate: March 1, 1982
Design Specialties: Print design, working on being not so horrible at web design
Website/Portfolio: mkulikportfolio.blogspot.com
Years in the Biz: Technically I graduated in 2005, but have been working freelance since about 2003.

What advice do you have for new designers? I think it's important to learn a program inside and out. Whether it's Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash or InDesign. Take all the tutorials you can. There's nothing more frustrating that knowing exactly what you want something to look like, know that the program can do it, but not knowing how!

Kids' names & birthdays: No kids yet!
