Hey! Can you design my wedding invites, christmas cards, company t-shirts, new logo?

4. Constantly seeing something so horribly designed that you are forced to offer to redesign it.

5. Find yourself always noticing what normal people don't.

6. You find yourself applying to jobs sort of related to your field.


7. You have color OCD.


8. You're in the class for almost double the amount of time as other majors.

JPEG, PNG, Word? What's the difference?
