    I'm a designer of another sort I'd rather not say on the net. With a business of 37 years. I do my own graphic design, occasionally for others. We had a thing just last week where I said that Curtis - a professor in an art college, BTW - really isn't much of a graphic designer. And that maybe I'm the best of our crowd. And immediately said, "But not very good in the world of REAL graphic designers". So, as Minnie in particular said, yes, anyone can push shapes around in Illustrator. Being an actual DESIGNER of any ability is harder than people probably think.

    May as well talk some, nobody's going anyplace.

    First do some research into what graphic design actually entails. I have known too many people who think it is just drawing pictures, pushing shapes and colours around and wearing rimless spectacles. It isn't.

    I’m a graphic designer. I nailed my projects in college, I’m even great at web design (and I know some web development). 

    Anyone can learn adobe and the rules of design. BUT you have to have the creativity. That is something that you have to pick up on your own. So with that being said, no. Not everyone can be a designer. Creativity is a skill that no everyone has. Those who are creative are usually intelligent. 

    But I’m not in anyway saying you can’t be a designer. Give it a shot if you’re interested, if it’s not you then find a plan B :)
