Bio

My interest in graphic design sparked when I started to draw more designs instead of actual objects or people. I always loved creating designs and crafting since I was 8 years old, it took me into another world because I was only focused on art and thinking of ways to make it look more appealing. It’s really interesting to learn new ways to design because I was never interested in doing art with technology, but now I think designing through technology is a more broad and competitive way of designing. Since technology is taking over, it is also making designing much more easier because personally I think that most of the famous designs in the world today would not have been possible to make without technology. It is fascinating to go to a gallery and find out how different artists created their work, and it is something I enjoy doing.
I have taken other classes in this major such as; Typography 1,Graphic Principles 1, Graphic Principles 2. From these classes I have learned to expand my ideas and create something that has a bit of me in it. Instead of strictly making what the professor showed us as example of the projects we needed to do. It really took me out of my comfort zone because I was so used to making exactly what the professor wanted, and now I just try to follow along the guidelines while I create my project. I feel that Communication Design is a very broad major that is expanding more and more every year.
