How to Become a Graphic Designer?
1) Make a lot of great samples.
2) Then search here how to make your name famous in google and get some traffic to your portfolio..
I saw yesterday a good thread about how to comment blog articles by your fantasy name eg. grapixdesign3r..thant name usually don't have in google search. Make your portfolio www.grapixdesign3r.com and it will get ranked high in google. And if you post into forums and blogs redirect them to your page as saying: I read a good article made by grapixdesigne3r, you should search him in google.. Don't put your URL into post because admin of the page probably won't accept your post then..
And ofc search related threads in BHW.
I hope you understand what I wrote because english is not my mother language..
You can sell your stuff at graphicriver or themeforest.
Get an adobe photoshop, enroll in a graphic design school in your area or find a PDF tutorial, the rest is in your imagination.
i learned photoshop by creating signature for various members in a graphics forum you can also watch videos of from photoshoptv etc etc
No offense to OP but this is the kind of thread that can be resolved by Google.
You can learn a lot from Google
Yes, enrol a school is the best way
"siihihi" I can't find your link ,
google said that it is invalid link ,
go to webdesign(dot)org.
Purchase reputable texts on design fundamentals...study as though you were taking a course in a good design program. There is no need to have a creative streak or "eye" for design... with practice, anyone can learn.
Join a course in Graphic Designing to learn software like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, In Design, etc. Don't worry about color theory or per-press; they can fix it at the printer's end. If you can not use the filters in Photoshop, you will never be a good designer.
Keep observing the designs being featured in newspapers, magazines, hoarding etc.
Practice designing daily on your system. Your design may not have a concept per se, but at least it will look cool. There are plenty of neighbors and people just starting out that will let you design for free. Practice makes perfect.
Try to use different shapes, color combinations in the designs you make. Make sure to use circles. Circles are key!
Research popular fonts, and design styles. Make sure anyone over the age of eighty can read it without their glasses.
Further your education. Really interested in Graphic Design? Consider some classes or a degree program. Academic settings can be inspiring and networking with others in your field is always a good thing.
Usually, to become a great graphic designer, you need to have
a passion for it - a strong interest in all elements of design.
You can learn the processes, and bang out some fair designs,
but just like a musician or any other creative, you need to be
completely absorbed in it and have an aptitude for it in order
to be great at it.
Speaking for myself, in the past, I used to draw logos and
cartoons when I was supposed to be using the Study Hall
period in school for doing my homework. Then, in the early
1990's when I got my first computer, it was a no-brainer
to transfer my real world passion for graphic design to
the virtual environment.

I'm interested in this.
I learned lot from internet and still I am learning.you can find great resources. The main thing is your interest.
start by duplicating other people work and move to self creativity
Learn adobe photoshop
Make sure that you are really interested in it
Otherwise it can get boring
Just be creative! If you enjoy it you'll learn faster, if you get stuck Youtube has a tutorial for pretty much everything. Good Luck!
You need the passion and interest that makes you do wonders and with these wonders you can achieve a lot and tell people what you are capable of.
Go to a design school because they don't just teach you how to use software, they teach you how to think creatively and develop your ability - plus you will have a good time!
Start with photoshop
Read Online tutorials, participate in forums related to graphics, start implementing it and soon you will start designing!
