Well graphic design has little-to-nothing to do with tagging. People on the tag forums think they know the slightest bit about graphic design, when they really don't. It's much different. Tagging is just an art hobby.
Yeah man. In fact I went to the Pratt Institute in NYC over the summer to study Graphic Design. But I don't tag much on the forums, though. A lot of our best members disappeared, so I don't feel like a lot of good critique is given sometimes.
