Bio

Hello, my Name is Derek Tolentino, I got my AS in Animation and motion graphics from BMCC, After graduation I decided to go on to pursue motion graphics in City Tech and get a BFA in Communication Design. I believe that I have learned more and have gotten better in my craft now that I am more focused in my field of study and with that, I have more to offer as well as show. Using creativity as a platform to express myself and my thinking has always been the foundation of my life since I was a young kid in elementary school, and ever since It has been an essential element of my everyday life and with that, I invite you to see the way I think and perceive Design from my point of view.

I would say that I am an innovative thinker with an AS in animation & motion graphics. I enjoy design because the possibility of creativity can go beyond what we perceive. Alongside studying communication design I enjoy illustrating as well.

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.
