Designer, Photographer, & Artist

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!

Toodles Interweb!

"I wish more people felt that photography was an adventure the same as life itself and felt that their individual feelings were worth expressing. To me, that makes photography more exciting." ~Harry Callahan
