Bio

Hi, my name is Obed Ledezma and I am currently majoring in Communication and Design at New York City College of Technology. I am 21 years old and I enjoy traveling. I was born and raised in New York City. I currently reside in Uptown Manhattan, Washington Heights. My favorite foods are Thai and Peruvian. When it comes to art and design I can relate to art a lot more. The Designing aspect of it is newer to me but I am willing to learn and gain knowledge on the subject. Art is something that has been around my life for as long as I can remember. My favorite forms of art are photography, music, designing, and painting.

My passion for communication design started during the summer when I downloaded a free trial of InDesign. I was designing logos and templates on InDesign and getting more familiar with it all while having fun doing it. When I got to college I realized sooner or later that this was the field for me. As a student, I want to be able to learn as much as possible and gain knowledge that will help me further my career and lead me to have an everlasting and successful career within the art world.
