Picking a path from design background
Hello one and all! I'm looking for some suggestions in picking a path as I begin my self-education in web design.
I've been working in graphic design and print over the last 15 years. I've worked in various print shops and until recently where I've worked at a news paper doing page layout and display advertising over the last 5 years.
Over the last couple years I've worked with a few people to create some very simple static sites and set up a wordpress site or two; nothing too spectacular.
The experience I had setting up the Wordpress site was a good learning experience and I would like to use it again in the future but I don't think that I want to simply jump into wordpress and call myself a web designer.
What say you?
Spend the time and refine and educate myself or jump in with a CMS and join the rat-race?
