Design Journal entry # 20

Self assessment shows how well I can do a project by myself. How well my performance is when I’ve finished my project. How well I did my project. I will get credit for how well the project is. If I don’t have self assessment my project will be sloppy and unprofessional and I would lose points on my project. It the same for a job, you have to give your very best in everything you do.

Design Journal entry # 19

I have found three companies in New York that are not too far from home and are hiring interns for the summer.

Established in 88 is hiring for half-time unpaid interns. My mother was born in the Caribbean (St. Vincent) and I still have family there. I believe this will help me have a better understanding of my culture. Also I taking courses in design management so this might help me to see a glimpse of real world experience.

Traction Artist Management is hiring for photography. I’ve taken photos sometimes with a digital camera just when I see something I like. It’s a hobby. I’ve never done anything professional.

Hearty Meals is looking for a graphic design intern. I’m creative when doing projects and energetic. This could help me see what it’s like professionally.

All these companies are hiring for the summer.

http://cprhw.tt/o/2DRs6/

These images are images of movement. Anyone looking at them would see the image trying to guide the person’s eye to the area of attention.

http://cprhw.tt/o/2DJfK/

These images are of rhythm. They show the same elements used in the image, but not over and over again like in a pattern, but more randomly.
