Bio

My name is Mohamed Basse and I am student at New York City College of Technology. I am majoring in Communication Design with a concentration in web design. I want to focus on UI/UX development as I feel my problem solving skills would serve well in that space. I am familiar with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Premiere Pro. I’ve taken courses in programming such as C++ and Java.
I’ve also taken introductory courses in graphic design such as foundation and figure drawing, graphic design principles, and Film/video production. I’m influenced by artists who take their work seriously and who want to push the envelope creatively and critically. Artists like Kanye West, Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Ive, Beck, Leonardo DaVinci. I browse a lot of video content on YouTube. I watch creators like Marques Brownlee, Casey Neistat, Philip DeFranco, and ETC Show. I also follow a lot of photographers on Instagram,

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.
