Bio

Hi! I’m an ambitious Communications Design student in my second year at City Tech and I work as a Creative Coordinator at a corporate Hospitality office in midtown Manhattan part time. I work on social media, assist on photoshoots, and set design for corporate events with the Creative Director. My hobbies in my spare time include reading, crocheting, and archery.

I’ve always been drawn to art and design ever since I was a child learning from YouTube tutorials on how to draw but decided to pursue a STEM career due to stability and societal pressure. The passion was never there and so I switched to COMD where I think there’s a good blend of tech and art. I’m inspired by modern and old architecture, renaissance paintings, and photography.

My Courses

COMD3504 COMD Theory SP24 (Thurs 2:30pm)

COMD3504 COMD Theory SP24 (Thurs 2:30pm)

An in-depth introduction to communication design theory, this course examines theoretical perspectives of design practice within the larger discourse of design and visual culture. Communication models, the nature of representation, the dimensions of context, and semiotics are explored through critical readings in key documents from the early decades of the twentieth century to the present.

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

This site is designed to help you find fieldwork/study situations of approximately eight hours per week at an internship site approved by the Department Internship instructor such as an advertising agency, graphic design firm, corporate design office, publications art department, photography or illustration studio, TV or multimedia production company. Students will be required to keep a learning journal of their internship in the form of a blog using Openlab. A portion of the class will be devoted to presenting and sharing experiences with classmates. Students will learn how to assess their talents, update their resume, and promote themselves and their work through social networks. Students will be required to setup and maintain at least two social media networks such as: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. The instructors for this class are there as mentors if you have not yet found an internship before registering for the course. However, the instructors do not find an internship placement for you. It is your responsibility to find a position that fits your personal career path and help you transition to full time employment upon leaving the halls of CityTech. Ideally, you will use this site to find an internship the semester before taking the COMD 4900 class.
