In design school, I wish I had known as much as I do now about building websites, typography, branding, packaging, RSS feeds and blogs, billing clients, presenting work, email and web campaigns, how to write a proper email to a client/vendor, how to prep things for print, how to properly research a project/client, how to keep my files organized and archived, and so on. That will be another article(s), but until then, Tom Faraci wrote a great article for GoMediaZine called Surviving Design School that’s 100% worth reading.
So what are your thoughts? What was most helpful? Do you already do those things or use those resources? Leave a comment on GoMediaZine and re-comment it here for other UG2 members. It’s not that much more work.
