I have been interested in technology and specifically design since high school. The origin of the design of everyday things fascinates me. Good design, bad design, I began to wonder where it came from, how it came to be where it was. Who were the people who designed the things that I use every day? I love the idea that somewhere along the line everything had to be intentionally made. Since then I have been gaining the critical and creative thinking skills necessary for good design.
I am currently a Computer Graphics Technology (CGT) at Indianapolis University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) which allowed me to explore many different areas of design. CGT has given me experience with graphic design, coding, 2D and 3D animation, and has encouraged me to always keep honing my skills. I am constantly reading about my field, looking up YouTube tutorials, and trying new techniques. It’s important to not lose the mindset of a student. Reading everyday is crucial to keeping up with where the industry is at and to keep a holistic idea of where we’re going.
