Bio

Hey there, the name’s Nelson Guzman and I was born in Dominican Republic and currently live in the Bronx. I’m currently studying to become a Graphic Designer.

What has sparked my interest in Graphic Design has been the cover art you see whenever you stare at a DVD or VHS Movie case, video-game Box Art, and the cover art that you see in most music Albums whenever you pass by the entertainment isle in your local Best Buy or Target. I’ve always found myself seeing the designs people come up with in that area of graphic arts, studying them, and comparing them all.

Currently the Skill sets I can offer is some photoshop and illustrator. I’ve come from a Theatre High School so things like acting, improvising and adapting is a skill I can provide. Also just generally pretty good at nerd stuff like playing video games, like esports and high scores. I also have a lot of experience in creative thinking and brain storming with others, both academically and just general fiction writing.

My Slogan/Tag Line is ‘Cerebral Bridges’

This basic design and color theory course explores graphic communication through the understanding of the elements and principles of design, as well as the design process, including idea development through final execution. This is a course in visual literacy and the design process: How we see, how we analyze the effects of our vision, and how we craft a design that will have energy and content. All projects will include thumbnail sketches, discussion and research. A weekly scrapbook will be kept. Media used are paint, paper, ink, pencil, ruler, knife, glue, and digital software for expressing graphic ideas. Numerous critiques will take place throughout the course and students’ active engagement in group discussion will play a vital role in establishing an atmosphere of collaboration and shared learning.
