Bio:

Hello my name is Tashaun Hester. I’m currently a student at The New York City College of Technology studying Graphic Arts and advertisement design. The reason why I chose this field is because I’ve always had a fascination with all types or art and how they actually bring society together in a sense. So much of what we look at and think about is influenced by art and design and it excites me to a degree that it can be a career can be made out of it.

To simply influence the world around me is my goal. Whether it is by Image, the way I act, muscly produce or even say. I don’t see art as only image as it is in everything. Anything that displays emotion can be considered art and through your emotions and ideas you can even change the perspective of other people.

Growing up in Far Rockaway, Ny I feel like I have a lot to say and I try to let it known. I’m in a local youth empowerment group called the rockaway youth Task force who’s goal is to help the younger generation become more aware of political matters and their community through civic engagement. I think it’s very important to know your surroundings for the good of your future as well as others. I’ve participated in many things such as voter registration drives to even simple things like block clean ups. Through this organization I’ve seen my self grow into a better person and I want to use the skills I acquire in school to only strengthen at aspect of myself.

Aside from that im into a large variety of different sports

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.

COMD4764 Design for Mobile, SP2017

COMD4764 Design for Mobile, SP2017

When the internet was first created the only place content could be displayed was on a smallish, computer screen with a limited color palette. Many people still design and create their interactive documents to match this paradigm. The problem is this is a completely outdated way of looking at the display mediums for interactive content. There are three major phone and tablet operating systems each with a wide range in the screen sizes of their respective devices. There are two major computer operating systems again with a wide range of screen sizes between them. Add in wearable devices, internet equipped appliances, digital signage, and email as a communication and design medium and your content has the possibility of being seen on an ever increasing and disparate set of screens. To deal with this new reality Responsive Design was created. Responsive design is more than just a series of design or layout techniques. It is a holistic process that begins in the design and planning phases and carries through into the development phase. To work well a responsive strategy isn’t something you tack on at the end stages of a project, it has to be in the minds of the designer/developer at the beginning.
