Bio

Hi, my name is Lilian Martinez and I am currently enrolled in 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 artist with different style 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 museum on my spare time with friends and love music. I have an interest in Van Gogh and Edvard Munch 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 apply the skills that I have learned to become a successful graphic designer.

Students will develop an understanding of the basic forms of the human body, how those forms are connected and move, and how to draw those forms proportionally. Students will also consider how the human form relates to the world around it, developing a clear understanding of how to create a composition containing proportional figures within a space according to perspective. Sensitivity to line, volume, light and shade is explored. Communication designers use the concepts developed in this course in disciplines such as advertising, graphic design, illustration, broadcast design, animation and photography.
