Bio

Hello! My name is Ammar Krcić and I am currently a student in New York City College of Technology in the Communication Design major.

My interest in graphics design started when I was midway in my high school career. The high school I attended was The Cinema High School for Filmmaking, the first ever high school in the United States to teach filmmaking for 4 years. Many asked why I just didn’t continue with filmmaking if I love it so much, my response was that I’ve learned almost everything I need to know about filmmaking and what I would love to learn even further is graphics design.

While I attended high school, a friend of mine was working on a personal project of his on photoshop, manipulating a certain image. I found it very interesting so I asked him if he could show me a few things in design and he gladly did. As soon as I learned those few things, I jumped into learning graphics design. I went on youtube to learn how to manipulate images, to make illusions, etc. and I continue to do so to learn more things. After learning a lot about design on the Adobe programs, I helped my father on his web magazine, Bosnjaci.net (Bosniaks.net, the English version) with projects that vary from different kinds of materials that are on his websites and because I love it so much I continue to help him. Doing so, I was able to help my father learn a few tricks on photoshop and he really loved it.

During the summer, I applied for an internship at CAI (what used to be known as, Cicatelli Associates Inc.) for the Communications Department and was accepted to work there. Naturally, I was elated because I was able to get some experience in the field while I was attending college so that I can put what I’ve learned in the job in my classes. Since working in the field for a few months, I have a sense of what should be expected of myself when I get into the industry after college.

My goal is to become a successful designer in the field and to continue learning even more programs and steps into design to build my resume, to improve my experience in the field so that I can be even more ready for the industry.
