In my freetime, I design.12.31.2011I keep re-discovering how blessed I am to have a found a major that fits me so well. Not only are my classes interesting, but I do independent projects outside of class, like now. While Ive been on break, I made a mini prayer book, and have completely redesigned my website. Ive also done some work in Photoshop, and recently Ive been creating Vera Bradley-ish patterns in Adobe Illustrator. Graphic design is so versatile its not just one job. It includes anything from layout design, to creating logos, business cards, letterheads doing photography, illustration, web design, clothing design, anything.
I dont get bored with this at all. Ive learned how to do so many different things, and I am super excited for a potential career in this field. I saw in the newspapers that graphic design was voted one of the most fun jobs, and I believe it. I really do love what I do, so much so that I work on projects over my Christmas break, just because I want to. I want to learn more about all the computer programs, about photo editing, about html code, about fonts, about what makes a design visually appealing. Im so blessed to have found the major for me, and I cant wait to continue it next semester.
