Bio

My name is Christopher Wong. Currently I am studying Communication Design at CityTech.

When entering college my goal was to major in Cartooning and to minor in graphic design. I went to SVA to pursue my Cartooning goals. It was not until several years later that I decided to delve more into graphic design when I began to work for a jewelry company (Steven Vardi Inc). I have a lot of experience in photoshop from drawing my comics, tinkering textures files from videogames, and from all the art classes that I took at SVA. I was hired by the company to be a courier, it was when they learned about my photoshop experience that set me into graphic design. They saw that I put photoshop as a skill in my resume and decided to give me small assignments to see the extent of my abilities. These assignments were just minor touch ups on jewelry pictures. They liked what I did and my position changed from a courier to a sort of editor. I began to create all sorts of banners, graphics and ads for them, as well as retouching their jewelry pictures. When they wanted something created or edited I would be the person they go to. This made me want to go more into graphic design. I want to further improve my skills professionally so I can be better at my job and open up more opportunities.

Now as for my favorite designers that is tricky, the reason is my tastes are more on the cartooning side. I’m still more of a cartoonist at heart then a graphic designer. I love drawing with my hands than work with a computer. You can see and feel passion when you draw the picture with your hands. Using a computer is great to enhance your picture but when creating things I feel its a bit more cold. I love J Scott Campbell’s work, Amanda Conner’s work is great as well. I love character designs that are simple and colorful. I’m not a big fan of art that strives for realism, its too bland in my eyes.

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.
