    The ability within yourself. You can learn the fundamentals and how to hold a pen, but if you haven’t got it within you, education won’t help. You can be self-taught and match the very best, but you have to do the most important thing … practice. Everyday!


    Your best bet, is to study other designers in the field of your choice. If you are interested in graphic design element of video games, then study the designers in this area and watch their tips and tricks.
    A while back an art student was interested in how I did my paintings. I showed him a technique with the paints that in all his time at art college, he had never been shown, yet at that moment I had opened up a whole new doorway for him to experiment. If you’re serious in what you do, you will always be learning and looking at new techniques.

    As they say that practice makes perfect. Most of my knowledge about programming and web are self taught. I read books, ask friends who are equipped of knowledge in web and then try it on my own. It's a hit and miss scenario. But I'm getting almost everything somehow. I still have so much to learn. But I'm very hopeful and driven to learn though.

    You should have computer knowledge with Photoshop, CorelDraw, Illustrator software. To become a graphic designer you should have creative mind and knowledge. No more knowledge is required to become a graphic designer.

    First, you must have interest on art and know how to conceptualize. Photoshop for great effects on images, and Illustrator for vector images.

    I have heard and seen a lot of people are doing a course. But only a course does not assure one to be a good designer. Practice and experience are very important keys.

    First and foremost thing for a graphic designer is to have good color sense and designing skills.A formal training or course in web and graphics would be preferable.

    first a graphics designer must have a basic knowledge of drawing he must be good at it, which will make him creative and full of imagination ability these two are the major factors for a graphics designer.

    I think first of all you need proper computer knowledge or particular course in this field. SO that you can able to operate the software of you line which is very must to in this field. Second thing is experience which will come when you will work with any organization for some period.
