Bio

Hi!

Welcome to my e-portfolio page! My name is Krystal, but I’m often referred to as “Krys” . I’ve always had a passion for design and my pursuit to be one of the best in the field has only just begun. I am currently attending NYC College of Technology, pursing a Bachelor’s in Communications Design. Although this will be my second degree, my degree in Criminalistics at John Jay College (which is obviously very different), has definitely helped prepare me for this Design field – in terms of perseverance, prioritizing/meeting deadlines and working well under pressure.

I strongly believe that there is nothing more fulfilling and rewarding than doing what you love. Even though you stray or try to run from it (as in my case), there will always be that gravitational pull tugging at you – to do that one thing that you were born to do. I’ve always found an interest and truly enjoy designing and making things with my hands (such as painting, 3-d form etc) or with the aide of a computer. I never thought I would see the day where I’d honestly proclaim my love for school…but that day is here! Nothing is more satisfying and gratifying than excelling in what you love doing. My sensei always says, “Do what you love and love what you do. Once you do that, then the money will chase you, not the other way round”…I intend to do just that!

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.

We will touch on the history of info graphics and will find ways they are appearing in new technology. This course is thought-provoking, encouraging students to stretch their minds into new territory while drawing upon basic skills of typography, color and composition.
