First, I would like to say that I am so sorry that I haven’t been blogging much lately! I was so busy with my Senior semester of school, graduation, and the job hunt. Fortunately, I have lots of news to tell y’all!
I will start with some of the past updates you deserve to know. My Typography Textbook took me forever, but it is possibly one of the better designs I have done. It took me all semester to collect the research and design the layout, but needless to say all my hard work paid off. I received a great grade on the project and got a lot of props from my professors.
Also, after wrapping up all my projects and designs I am officially a college graduate! I received my Bachelor of Arts for Art, Graphic Design, and a minor in Art History. I also landed a job as a Graphic Designer right after graduation.
I took a week off after graduation to relax and get ready for the grown up world. Now we are current, and up to date. I have a job at Team Creative Fire in Sioux City and am a part-time graphic designer. I also am still doing my nannying and doing freelance design on the side. I am still searching for a full-time graphic design job, but until then my Boss is keeping me busy.
One of the biggest problems I had after graduation was getting myself set up for the graphic design world, but a few days ago I made my first big purchase…a MacBook Pro with Retina Display. I LOVE IT! I haven’t been happier, but I can say that it was a big chunk of change — so worth it! Also, I joined the Adobe Creative Cloud and am currently downloading all the programs I need so I can start really designing. I have some very big projects coming up for work and for freelance. So – this means you will be getting several posts from me again! I am going to try to post a new blog every monday until I get into the habit, then I will probably amp up to twice a week!
As for now, I am taking all suggestions for apps to get for the MacBook or my iPad that are Design worthy! So let me know what you suggest and maybe I will even do a few app reviews! Until next time, I hope everyone has a wonderful monday!
