Today was fifth, the last day of training.
We have done 2 individual projects and currently finishing our group project.
The project is to create Logo, Stationary, Website etc. So we have to think how each piece will relater to other one and have consistante visual identity.
The training helped me to learn a lot information in just 5 days. I learned more about Adobe Suite, how to communicate with a client, work in a group and most important I learned more about my weaknesses. Understanding is the first step on the way to improve .
Today we finished our Creative project, and started working on our Finale project.
The Finale project is a group project, so at start it was kinda challenging. We all have different design style and vision so first we all tried to come up with visual identity.
But then we figured it out and now each member of a group has own task .
This experience is very helpful because in real
1)What did you learn?
Today I learned about researching and completing an infographic design.
2)How is it going to help you?
It is going to help me because I will be ahead when I end up taking the infographic design class.
3)What do you want to learn?
I want to learn different layouts which can display information to an audience efficiently.
4)How was it working in a group?
Once again, we offered each other helpful advice to improve upon our work.
5)Did you get to know your partner?
I spoke to my partner briefly. We offered our opinions on each others designs.
Today I learned how to apply crop marks and bleeding if needed to a document and other steps that will be helpful for printing
Today I learned more about File naming and Organization, Printing Specs and Client Relationship.
This knowledge would help me in my work flow, make the process faster.
Today I had more time to know my partners, we shared our ideas about each others posters for City Tech Writer. It was nice to receive feedback,It helped me to improve my poster.
Now that my semester is over, my focus for next year is to develop my portfolio, sharpen my skills on Adobe Design platform and improve my flexibility on various desktop models. Looking back I can honestly say that learning from and bonding with my co-interns and supervisors has been the highlight of my experience working at FC. For those graduating and to our upcoming designers, my words of encouragement and advice would be to never stop learning and to remember what first sparked your desire to pursue design. As long as you remember why you will never lose your drive.
I have came across one challenging project while working with FC. I’ve manage to accomplish the project after becoming more proactive in my communication. It’s was hard as well as a learning experience. I enjoyed seeing the end results of all of my projects. Sometimes when I’m working in the midst of an developing idea, reality doesn’t always mearsure up with the visuals. A prime example would be my group project focusing on campaign for state awarness of Pink Tax. My partner Simone Alexis worked deligently through research, potential headlines/tagline and marketable giveaways. Although we’ve manage to come up with great results we forgot to factor in cost. We ended up researching various companies that provided limited to extensive services for their price range provided. This was my first experience stimulating the business aspect of my career of choice. Overall I find that FC has left me opened to more opportunities in terms of growth in design concepts and clients relations.
What did you learn today? I’ve learned how to communicate ideas and concept effectively in order to remain on the same page visually as my peers
What challenges did you face? the challenge I’m facing is multi-tasking, being able to stay aware of my surroundings whilst being immersed in the design process.
In what way were you able to help each? We were able to provide useful critique and offer new perspectives to better our current concepts.
What did you learn today? I’ve learned about the inner workings of working in a team. That it’s important to look ahead and create contingency plans.
What challenges did you face? ( how did you plan to overcome the said challenge?) Today’s main challenge was turning intangible ideas into something more concrete within the span of one day and a few hours.
In what way were you able to help each? We were able to contribute and volunteer workable concepts to ensure that we got something to show before we leave the office.
