I've worked in various types of graphic and web design environments and roles.
Nothing can beat first-hand experiences, learning the subtilties of different work cultures. Best part is meeting individuals that you'll never forget; and learning what type of career activities make design enjoyable.
I value the benefits from these experiences.
In these work environments, I've had the chance to interact with different types of customers/clients and had an opportunity to experience different ways of approaching projects.
