Bio

My name is Amaris Marte; in my second year of college studying of course Communication Design. At first, I was studying Computer Information System but realized that it wasn’t something I wanted to continue studying because of how much I like to create and do artistic things. I did like the coding part of Information Systems but felt I wanted to learn something new and improve on my designing skills. Now that I switched majors I find it to be much more exciting and motivated to learn more about designing.

Before I did have some knowledge on Photoshop but none on Illustrator and now that I’m learning it’s challenging but fun to learn. I now find Illustrator more interesting as well as InDesign not so much Photoshop but I continue to learn as the months go by. To know a little more about me my favorite activities I enjoy are drawing, playing videogames, reading, and exploring new places that I haven’t been before. I always like to see new places in different parts because I get to learn and try new things such as food and other things; I do like traveling as well with my family and hopefully by myself one day to enjoy a better experience.

My Courses

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.
