I'm in exactly the same boat as you my friend - got a C.S degree, even though halfway through I wanted to do something else, and also hugely passionate about the creative industry.(Original post by study beats)
firstly, have i wasted my 3 years at university ?
plus the 1 year I wasted when I dropped out of engineering.
plus another 2 years doing the wrong A levels such as maths and physics and further maths
so have I wasted 6 years of my life ?
after my second year of computer science I wanted to drop out as I realised programming was no longer for me and I didn't like it....but I continued on just to finish it.
my passion is in the creative industry ..
what do I do now ?
how do i get all those years back ?
I figured the best way to get into the creative industry was to combine skills I already have (so as not to completely waste my degree) with things you wanna do - through creative agencies and working as a Front End Web Developer, User Interface Designer, Graphic Designer, Animator etc - anything where you can be creative with respect to the aesthetic of something.
Hopefully working for companies who do beautiful work that you admire will inspire you to keep learning, which then can potentially lead to other things. My hope is to design and develop websites, logo's, animations - get comfortable with a few different disciplines with a view to moving into architecture, film making or men's fashion design, depending on which route suits me best
Just out of interest, which aspect of the creative industry are you interested in?
