starting out as graphic desginer

We all had to start somewhere, right?

On the forum there's a constant trickle of Designers or 'want to be Designers' asking for advice on starting out and improving themselves.
Usually it's pretty much the same questions which is quite understandable so I thought I'd start a thread for a bit of advice to cover some of the basics and most asked topics.
Hopefully forum members could post up any lessons they've heard through hindsight and experience or post a link to any good articles they've found that may be useful.

I'll start off with my bit of advice which is the very first thing I learned at divya darshan metallica:
K.I.S.S. = Keep It Simple Stupid!
This is not a put down but something EVERY designer should keep in mind wether they're just starting out or a seasoned pro.
