Graphich Design

Bio

My name is Jay Garcia and I am a student at New York City College of Technology. This is currently my second year at this college and I strive to achieve an associates degree in the Graphic Design Field. Ever since I was young, art was always a way I could express myself and it was always a way I could pass some time. But as I committed more time to the art and really mastered a few of the techniques, I was able to really make progress in this field and thought this was potentially something I could do in the future as a career. I really enjoy the variations of colors that exist and how powerful they actually are when used correctly. Not only that but I do have a fascination with the modern day technology that is being made, that’s why I saw Graphic Design was a way to get the best of both worlds. I can show off my illustrations and color use, while use modern day technology to do it. Hopefully in the near future I am able to further develop my skills as a graphic designer with some work experience.

Some other things that I do outside of City Tech and art can vary highly. I am a Jack of all trades when it comes to sports, but I prefer mainly football, basketball, ping pong and swimming. Ever since this pandemic has started, I have invested some more time into online video games, and I have become very competitive in many games. But no matter what I am into, I know that if I just put my mind to it, nothing should be impossible to overcome.

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 twodimensional 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.

COMD1162 Raster & Vector Graphics, Spring 2021

COMD1162 Raster & Vector Graphics, Spring 2021

Basic concepts related to the two fundamental digital graphic forms (raster and vector graphics) and learning best uses and practices for each. This course covers basic digital imaging terminology and techniques including size, resolution, color space, file elements, measurements, file formats, and scanning software and hardware. Class projects require students to explore the meaning of communication through design and how it correlates with client satisfaction and target audience. Students become proficient with both raster and vector applications, such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
