Okay so I’m a senior and my degree is in Game Art and >>Design<<. My last couple of years I’ve realized my interests are in game design, however I’m one of few and this degree, school, and teachers seem to push us students into the art track. I’ve noticed and raised questions myself about what design is and how to obtain it, and a lot of my teachers seem to have a traditional perspective of it.
Because I know what I want to call myself when I graduate, I’m on a path to learn, understand, and teach myself traits of a designer. This helps so much, and I can’t wait until I can pull my wait in this battle and get this problem fixed.
