Internship Journal Entry 2

During my internship . My role is graphic designer+. I say that because while designing presentations and proposals is interesting I’ve been involved with public relations quite a bit.

Public relations is kinda like an art form in that you must be on point at all times and it’s important to be responsive to last minute changes. I’ve yet to be effective at it and have light years to learn but it humbles me to understand my own shortcomings.

While working on the text heavy brochures I’ve learned a lot about the differences between symmetrical and asymmetrical grid systems.

To summarize either may be effective in it’s own, the important thing is to understand your audience. Understanding who is going to be consuming your information is more essential that your skill level because as long as you deliver on the content and present it in a way your audience is able to understand the message well that beats all the drop shadows and lens flares.

Internship Journal Entry 1

This semester I’ve been interning at the Convergence Network a publishing startup aiming at publishing a creative showcase of CUNY creative student work among other projects. Their main goal is to acquaint students from different campuses but in similar majors to one another. Thus promoting collaboration,  community engagement and networking among peers.

Mission Statement:

Our organization aspires to bridge and introduce students from the creative fields across campuses. Create a platform for exhibiting student work, invite peer to peer criticism and discussion. We will strive to establish better professional ethics, evolve portfolios, and work hard towards ensuring better employment opportunities.

I found this opportunity through the Dean of The School of Technology and Design, Kevin Hom  and my dear friend Muhsin Alam who studies Architecture and Design.
