Bio

My name is Jennifer, I go to City Tech and my major is Communication Design.

My enthusiasm to be a graphic designer was caught when I was a sophomore in high school. I had a few coding classes and for some projects we were put into groups and each classmate had to do different tasks. Therefore, this was when I volunteered to be the designer for the game. I personally love to draw, although somehow when I normally draw/sketch it tends to come out looking cartoonish— and that’s what made mine stand out, because it was my signature style— it was never intentional, it just occurred; and from that moment I realized I can make money out of it and as I researched more I learned there’s a career for it and it wont be a job I’ll hate to do!

College helped me grow a lot as a student and learn so many things I didn’t know. For example, with classes like Graphic Design Principles I and Raster & Vector Graphics, I learned programs like Illustrator and Photoshop. Every little or big project we did I learned each day. Whether it was creating your own logo, or making your own book cover, it taught me. Photography, music, dance and other artist, like Yuko Shimizu ( Japanese Illustrator) inspire me when I feel stuck on a task. I also then start to from collages and if I like it i’ll move on to my next steps. This would be where the illustration part would come into action, and I would say it is my favorite part because they can be edited in any way you would like.

Altogether, I hope to gain more knowledge throughout the years and some day work in a TV/Production, illustrating/graphic designing many different characters for a new show, so stay tuned!!
