Bio

My name is Alain and I recently just moved to New York from Georgia to pursue a career in design. I’ve been dabbling with graphic design and artistic endeavors since my pre-teen days. Everything I know, up to now, has been self-taught. I found a love for drawing then ventured into learning Photoshop. I later found interest in video editing, learning After Effects and Premiere Pro. Afterwards, I found love for web design and creating user interfaces. My most recent passion has gone back to illustration and learning vector design. I am proficient with Adobe Illustrator and it is my favorite design program to use. I also have been freelancing for the past 7-8 years, learning how to solve problems and also bring results. After I graduate I hope to start as a junior graphic designer and work my way up to creative director of a notable agency or firm.

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.
