Bio

My name is Ashley Varon. I am a student at The City University of technology in New York City. I am currently majoring in Communication design with a concentration in web design and minoring in mathematics. I am taking a graphic design course because I believe it is a challenging profession and will allow me to engage with my brain to become more creative. My goal for the course is to gain a new perspective to the world and pay more attention to small details everywhere. What inspires me the most is minimal designs. I am a strong believer that less is more and while this technique may look simple I believe it can be difficult to design with so little. My preferred design process would have to be coding on a computer, but I like to sketch out designs before being able to view and create them on a computer. I would like to look into collaborating with a textile company because Iv been surrounded buy that type of environment in the past and I was amazed at the design process.

This course challenges students to think and strategically apply campaign ideas. At this stage, students choose a media placement and incorporate it into the solution. Project based assignments from concept through final digital output are an integral part of the course. The course also introduces the collaborative relationship between Art Director and Copywriter. Student teams brainstorm, develop copy, art direct and pitch ideas in teams. Students will explore the dialogue between products and services and how to communicate their benefits and features to the intended target.

COMD1100 Fall 2017

This basic design and color theory course explores graphic communication through the understanding of the elements and principles of design, as well as the design process, including idea development through final execution. Students develop basic skills in two-dimensional design, color and content creation while employing the design process of research, sketching and experimentation. Communication designers use the concepts explored in this course in disciplines such as advertising, graphic design, web design, illustration, broadcast design, photography, and game design.
