1. Basic Questions

Hello survey-takers and multiple-choice shakers!
Let me start off by thanking you for taking the time to help me with my senior project and apologizing for that opening line. As I get ready to graduate, thoughts of designing for something other than homework are in my head. It’s this proximity to a job in the creative field that has led me to a subject for my senior project. By surveying professional designers, I intend to take an honest look into the creative field. I have included a series of multiple choice questions as well as some short answer queries. I ask that you fill out each answer in the most honest way possible, even if your answers are angst-ridden and filled with curse words. That’s survey pay dirt. Answers may be as long or as short as you’d like. If a question doesn’t apply to you for some reason, just answer it with “Not Applicable”. Thanks again for your help.
