Bio

Hi, my name is Lilian Martinez and I am currently enrolled in the New York City of Technology and majoring in Graphic Design. What interested me in graphic design was during high school, my graphic design teacher showed me creative works by other designers such as Paul Rand and Chipp Kidd. I am interested in advertising design and illustration. I love seeing works with a minimalistic image or chaotic composition. Having to see so many artists with different styles of works inspire me to become one of them.

I was born and raised in Queens, I’m a carefree person who has a lot of hobbies. I enjoy going to galleries and museums in my spare time with friends and love music. I have an interest in Van Gogh and Edvard Munch’s work specifically. Photography is another interest of mine. Specifically how an image can express how someone feels and the background of where the image comes from. I would like to work in a company that offers creativity in different platforms and applies the skills that I have learned to become a successful graphic designer.

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.
