being a junior graphic designer at Roadshow Entertainment

Disappointed at myself was what I felt after 4 weeks at Roadshow Entertainment and now I ask myself this question "Am I even qualified to be a graphic designer even though I have got a degree in it?". The reason I question myself is because of my performance for the company, for the first week at work I had about 10-20 questions that I asked my colleagues, its really ridiculous actually with the pay that I am getting and the performance that I am giving is like robbing a bank.

I thought after working at the company for a few weeks I would get a hang and become more productive than ever but no it was nowhere near. This really got me wondering, what happened to the HD and D that I got from college? what happened to the "praises" I get from people? what happened to all the skills that I have learnt from college? where did they all disappeared to?

I finally realise the importance of work experience, its extremely important. Getting experience in the working world will allow us to see and understand what "real clients" are after and forces us to put our skills to good use, not only that but we will be forcing ourselves to improve and learn more design techniques to help improve our design which I am currently learning. Getting back from work, I have the urge to improve my design skills as I question myself daily at the office on why I am not getting the result that I was aiming for and how can I improve my current design? All these questions gives me motivation and motivation to do better for work will also improve my design skill and lifestyle as an individual.

I will aim to do the impossible and try to achieve the impossible, with goal this high I have nowhere to go but to improve myself and this is my journey...
