Bio

Hello everyone! My name is Brandy and I am currently a communication design student at City Tech. My career goals is to become an art director and be able to work through different mediums. I enjoy watching animation, playing video games, being around animals, learning new things and meeting new people. I love learning not only new artistic techniques but just more about the world in general. There’s still so much I don’t know and finding the answer to those unraveling questions is fun. With this major I hope to become versatile and hone many skills to create amazing content.

When I first entered City Tech I have only heard about what communication design was and it sparked my interest. Now from getting more exposure from this field, I’ve come to really enjoy it and want to make a career out of it. What I love about this major is being able to create messages or ideas through more than one style that speaks to people. Being able to bring out imagination to real life whether it from mine or someone else’s vision fascinates me because a lot of interesting ideas dwells within people. I hope to not only create content that makes me feel satisfied but reaches to other people.

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.

“I went into photography because it seemed like the perfect vehicle for commenting on the madness of today’s existence.” — Robert Mapplethorpe This course surveys the history of photography from its beginnings in the early nineteenth century to the present. We will examine the use of photography for aesthetic, documentary, and “scientific” purposes, stylistic shifts in photography related to aesthetic concerns, and varying interpretations of subject matter based on social and cultural concerns at specific moments in history. We will also consider the relationship between photography and the visual arts in general, which culminates with the primacy of photography as a medium by the late twentieth century.
