Have you completed all your work (for the Fall 2016 semester) with your clients and closed all loops?
Yes, I’ve completed everything but my client for the Newsletter wrote me an email with a request to add one more submission for a faculty member. It wont be too much work to fix.
Are you happy with your results with the work you completed this semester? What was your favorite project you got a chance to work on this semester?
I’m pretty happy with the work I did this semester. My favorite things were the Black Solidarity poster and the New Faculty Welcome card (there’s just something about that red Cardinal that just makes me smile).
How are you going to prepare for next semester during the Holiday Break? If you are departing from the team, let us know your plans for 2017.
Wow, I cant believe I’m finally done with school. I’m gonna miss all my classmates and my FC family. My plans are to continue to work as much as I can while growing and building my life with my wife Rose. I hope to get a job in the design field as well. I’m not sure when I’ll start applying to jobs however. Overall, this semester was great and memorable, the Christmas party was AWESOME!!!! I LOVE YOU ALL!
My semester has been an extreme learning experience. This was my first design internship experience and although in the beginning I was terrified, I found myself fitting in as the months went by. I feel like I’ve accomplished my goals, which was to sharpen my design skills and knowledge, to do portfolio worthy designs and also to network with other designers on a friendly and professional basis. My clients gave me work that made me sweat but made me fit and ready for the coming rounds. This was a phenomenal experience!
I’m currently working on two final pieces for two different clients. I’m still working on the style guide for the Newsletter and I’m working on the AFR Course Poster and Brochure. I’m working diligently to finish all I have as soon as possible, but I know that good design should never be rushed. I’m pretty happy with the finished work I’ve completed, however I humbly accept the opportunity to make room for improvement.
My plan for the summer is to land a BTTIP internship in order to continue to grow as a designer. My hope is to go get hired as a full-timer. Also, I plan to do a lot of photography, I already have some neighborhood clients in line for photoshoots. More importantly I plan to work on developing my own design style using typography and photography. By the time the Fall semester comes around I should have some work ready for my Portfolio class.
Thank you all!
