Bio

My name is Sebastian Chapman, I am from Caracas, Venezuela. I moved to the United States when I was 13 and have enjoyed school since then. I have been lucky to work in many different fields, and to meet people from all walks of life. I believe that a creative mind is essential to live. I have always had an interest in creative arts, media platforms, computers, video games, and a thirst for finding easier solutions to any problems.
I believe that our imagination has no limits, and I enjoy conveying different concepts and ideas thoroughly with the help of many tools, analog or digital. There is something special about capturing something that is so human like art while using a non-human medium: software, tablets, computers, etc. My academic interests are in creative designing and marketing. I enjoy meticulous tasks that require attention to detail. I enjoy working on different projects and always having a fresh take on them.

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.
