Anyone else a graphic designer?

I have been in CO for about 2 years now looking for a full time job. I am now aware that the job market really is about who you know and not what you know. So, we are thinking of either moving back to CT, or taking a chance and moving to Chicago.

Does anyone have a design job in either of those two areas? How are the markets faring right now and which would be the best choice for doing print work at a design agency?

Re: Anyone else a graphic designer?

My wife is a graphic designer. She works for a major magazine dist. company. I know her work is somewhat slow but she designs wedding stuff on the side (The Fussy Designer, LLC) and that is BUSSSSSYY. I almost never see her as she sits up in her office we made her and works.

So wedding designs keep her busier than her magazine job? Maybe I'll look into wedding/photography studios then. Thanks for the info!

Ugh that really sucks. Do you use Flash? I have seen a TON of web design jobs out there, plus they don't pay too bad.

Well hopefully the job market will pick back up by the time you graduate.
