Hello…

*havent posted in a while¬†due¬†to the fact I honestly don’t know what to write on here*

My third semester is almost coming to a close and, to be honest, I can’t wait for it to end‚Ķunlike last year this semester does feel different or new it just feels, like a monday morning, you know you have to do it but at the same time you can’t bring yourself to enjoy anything. Thats not to say my classes made this year bad or the workload bothered me‚Ķnothing like that. I guess it was just the fact that college is stating to feeling like a place to go for a couple of hours,¬†go home (pretty much like high school) and do it all over again the next day. Who knows how the rest of college will go for me i just hope its at least better than now.

The night before – 8/24/16

So tomorrow begins my second year at college… honestly I don’t know how to feel about that. I should be excited but right now I cant sleep and I’m dreading that awful bus ride. I guess my summer wasn’t that bad…but I cant shake this feeling that¬†I didn’t do anything this summer. I guess its just me but its whatever cause this year I’m determine to make this year worth something… I¬†don’t know how but¬†I will…

Anyway here’s what I did:

  • Europe in 12 days
    • London¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ¬†¬† IMG_3693

I realized now¬†I haven’t put much on this e-portfolio but now that school has started¬†I feel more incline to update this site as much as I can…

So let me reintroduce myself…

Graphic Design Principle look back (finale)

This is one of the first projects I attempted to do involving 50/50 black and white. I don‚Äôt know what the point of this project was. My experience with the project was that it was very difficult. My reason for calling it very difficult is that because I didn‚Äôt understand it, plain and simple. I couldn‚Äôt wrap my head around how to do it, let alone how to even start it. I know that my project doesn‚Äôt exactly embody the feeling of 50/50 black and white. The hardest part wasn’t doing the measurements or transferring the design to bristol. The hardest part was finding patterns that would be acceptable or even just barely something I could use . To be fair and very honest this is ¬†the hardest project I was given.¬† I decided I wouldn‚Äôt redo it because I felt it was not worth redoing if I couldn’t get it the first time how would I get better the second time.

This is the second transparency project. I don‚Äôt know exactly what the point of this project was either. My experience with the project was that it wasn’t as difficult as the first one was. The reason is that because I started to understand more of the concept of why I was doing it. I know that my project doesn‚Äôt exactly embody the feeling of transparency the way it was meant to be. To be fair and very honest this was¬†the closest I could get¬†without further ruining the project itself. After doing the project I started to realize there were little things i could fix. In he end,¬†I decided I wouldn‚Äôt redo it because I felt that my experience with the project and understanding where¬†that I messed up would later help me to better understand how colors work with each other.

This is one of my transparency projects. I don’t know exactly what the point of this project was. My experience with the project was that it was difficult. my reason for calling it difficult is that because I didn’t understand the concept of why I was doing it. I couldn’t wrap my head around how to do it. I know that my project doesn’t exactly embody the feeling of transparency. To be fair and very honest this is probably the closest I could get to how I thought it should look like. After doing the project itself I started to realize where I went wrong. When¬†I realized what I had done and where I went wrong I decided I wouldn’t redo it because I felt it was that my experience and seeing that I messed up would help me to learn what not to do and how not to do it.
