oooh awesome. My father owned his own business and specialised in printing + industrial plates and stencils and had a large clientele. I would have continued but the new tech would have cost about 5m to renew/learn and to outfit everything, the machines he had were ancient!. To this day I regret not doing it Could have made a fortune even with a bank taking a large share of the business! But at least I have skills in coral draw and photoshop, never know when that will come in handy.Mehetabel wrote:Career-wise, I've been in the print/advertising industry since I was 17. Part graphic designer, part layout artist, part photoshop artist, part customer service (as of late). I'm currently in the Newspaper trade, soon to be made redundant along with my whole department (all work being outsourced to India due to low costs *sigh*) so I'm intending to go freelance as a photoshop retouch artist, which is my something I love doing.
I live in Auckland, New Zealand, turned 28 this year, and just got engaged a few months ago. Currently working two data entry jobs to make ends meet AND trying to get my own business venture off the ground. I'm more into the logistical side of things and there's always a high demand for that I hope one day I'll be able to provide enough to have a large family (enough to field a rugby league team at least)
My gf got me into knitting and I have to say it's been amazing for my finger and hand strength. Now I have zero problems playing the paino and other instruments. I made my first pair of gloves the other week and I don't want to stop wearing them (it's winter over here)Wakamaru wrote:
