Bio

My name is ShanShan Yu. Currently working for my bachelor’s degree in communication design. When I first enter City tech, I have no idea what I have interest in. I wanted to change to hospitality where I have friends who are taking the major. But for some reason, I just stay COMD. However, as I process through the course of communication design, I feel like I enjoy the classes that I am in, and thankful for not switching my major. Since I didn’t have an interest when I enter, now I feel like I enjoy doing editorial design. I hope I would work on editorial design or graphic design path, since my art skill wasn’t that good to be an illustrator. However, I might work hard on practices and try to make it another habit.

There are many kind of art, I play with watercolor when I have time, I also enjoy coloring books from Johanna Basford. I also follow artist from Instagram. For example, Qing Han(Qinniart), I love her work as how she can use watercolor to create art pieces that look like digital. Recently, I discover a photographer on Instagram from Tokyo called Mao Kokubu. I am not sure if is a he or she, but I love the color schemes that the photographer has going on. These pictures don’t look photograph, it looks like a painting or something.

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.
