Bio

I am a Senior pursuing my Bachelors’ in Communication Design with a focus in Illustration and have about a year of experience in the field. For the past 4 years I have developed strong skills in graphic design to create posters, packaging, and social media content. During this time I have learned that the target and objective is the most important part of any research behind a project in order to effectively reach that audience. I have applied this process when designing for Posters and booklets for events and lectures at my school.

I rely heavily on the main concepts for whatever project I work on to help inspire my design choices. Beautiful design is everywhere but defeats the purpose if it can’t speak to the people it’s targeted to. I enjoy creating art with watercolor painting as my main medium, but also digital paint using various programs. I love to read fantasy books and play video games that tell immersive stories, and am inspired by the beauty and mystery of outer space which I try to include in my work.

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.
