Zijun’s Profile

active 1 month, 1 week ago

Hello! My name is Zijun Huang and I am currently studying Communication Design at New York City College of Technology.
When I was a little girl I accidentally joined an online group chat that was about Editing pictures. This was how I started to get in touch with Photoshop. I was very happy at that time because we could discuss design and art. However, this was not how I discovered I should major in Communication Design. Last year I was still in another College and majored in Computer Science because Computer Science was very popular and I did not know what I interested in. While I was studying in Computer Science I also enrolled in a few Art classes in order to relax. I found that when I was doing my homework for my art classes, I felt more enjoyable, so I made a decision which was changed my major.
After I changed my major and transferred to city tech, I found that there are more tools and applications that I could use other than Photoshop. I learned some basic skills in how to use InDesign last semester, and our instructor also taught us typography. Typography was more interesting than I thought, it could carry emotions by how we design the outlook of the letters. Learning how to manipulate these applications to express things in my brain is fascinated.
I am interested in the field of advertising and photo editing. I am looking forward to see myself increase my skills and creativity so that I could express more thoughts and ideas to people.

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.
