It's all about creativity of vision, patience and visual problem solving. Time to get educated. Although there may be some that make it to the industry just by talent alone, most, if not all of us I'm talking you and me here need some sort of certificate or degree to land a job as a graphic designer. Many employers won't even bother to look at you if you lack the piece of paper that shows that you have been trained and seasoned by some sort of graphic design related program.
