I apply for a job. I am then called by a staffing agency to come in for an interview before I can be considered for the position. I go in and interview with them and they tell me about all the wonderful opportunities they can help me with.Then, I never hear from them again. Even if I apply for jobs through their site. I've even gotten two calls from a site I have already registered with (I used my nickname) After I tell them I have already registered with them I am told they will be sure to review my qualifications. I am an older worker(52) who just returned to school and got my AA in Graphic Design with a 4.0 GPA. I have asked people to review my portfolio and they say that it is good. I've applied to 600 jobs since May and am feeling really defeated. I don't even get called in for unskilled jobs. My question is, are staffing agencies just looking to pull new prospects in? That's what I feel like is really going on. If I didn't have help, I would be homeless, and it's a horrible feeling to have, when all you want is a decent paying job.
well I thought I'd kick it off by introducing one of the designers that have influenced me and in everything I do I have a tendency to refer to his work , Saul Bass. I guess it all started with a film directed by Hitchcock called North by Northwest and I kinda got carried away by the title sequence, if ever you have seen it it is an iconic piece of juxta-positioning and clever typography that gives you the essence of the movie on par with the directors own influence and thus Hitch having Bass do several other movies with him. But Bass was not a one trick pony he like Lowey influenced American graphics through the later part of the 20th century from type design through brand and into poster's and marketing. Me well I'm influenced by the illustrative nature of Bass's work and the clean lines of his brand work and I tend to favour a mix of the two disciplines when it comes to my own work. here are a couple of sites to get a feel for the great man http://www.artofthetitle.com/designer/saul-bass/ and http://saulbass.org/#portfolio so was he Spartacus ? who knows

Hi. I'm Noah. I have been working as a Graphic Designer for over 20 years and thought it would be really great to connect with other designers and share our ideas and experiences. Since we all work in the best profession there is, we already have a lot in common. Already looking forward to meeting you.
