I’m finally back to blogging after a one year absence. I definitely needed a breather, but now I’m refreshed and ready to roll!
Upon receiving an AAS at Mt. Hood Community in Integrated Media: Graphic Design in summer 2009, I decided to take on Portland State’s graphic design program in the fall. It’s been a good year at PSU, and I appreciate all the talented new eyes on my work by PSU instructors and fellow designers. The experience gave me the chance to calibrate my level of design amongst university students. PSU also gave me the opportunity to explore my artistic side through drawing and more practice at digital illustration.
However, with few transfer credits applied at PSU, I spent my year there as a sophomore, so I’m once again shifting gears aiming towards either a certificate or an AAS in web design & development at Portland Community College. It’s time to wrap up the education, put a full skill set in place and work.
My immediate center of attention is building my freelance graphic design business. With summer break from school for the first time in three years, it’s time to update my blog and website with both student and professional work accomplished over the past year. So here we go!
