Bio

Hello, my name is Alice Garcia, I’m currently majoring in Communication Design. This is currently my second semester at city tech, I want to continue to learn more skills along the way and develop more from my previous semester. Before my decision to major into Communication Design I wanted to major in computer science but my thoughts changed when I convinced myself that the major wasn’t for me to do computing. Communication Design on the other hand, made me remember that I always liked to draw even if they were just doodles on paper. Drawing was probably just a hobby back then but now, I think of it as my inspiration on what I would like to continue to study. When I think of drawing I feel free to do as much as I want even though I thought about my foundation drawing being too hard, it was more or less becoming easy for me to learn and take it as a new achievement into my major.
During my last 2 years of high school I recall being involved into an activity after school. I had not only learned about photography but also about logos that we see/use in our daily life. Although I learned to play around on some websites in which you can place a word text into a shirt or other items of your choice. I got to play around with photoshop and perfect on images. Communication Design has made me learn a variety of things I can do and create if I put my mind into it. Sometimes when I can’t think of new ideas, I always try to find inspiration to be able to work it out into the computer. I learned to work hard and not give up on what I want to accomplish. The communication is shown through the art done by people such as me and other creators of their work piece.
