As a designer is sorta unique as I left college after my sophomore year for 3 years to work with a start up. My colleagues thought I was crazy but I went with my gut and took a risk. After the 3 years, I decided to head back to school to finish my degree and feel that the lost time was worth it for the experience. I have learned so much about being a designer and how a small business runs. I was not only the in house designer, I had to wear multiple hats and pick up slack where ever needed. This forced me to work in many different situations and environments. This type of experience could not have been done while in college and am very glad I went with my gut. Now graduated with a BFA in Applied Visual Arts and working full time for Gravitate (gravitatedesign.com) up north.
