I am a junior and I need to begin a foundation of employment that better resembles my career goals. Working over five years in restaurants, I haven’t been able to gain the true experience in graphics. Graphics design has fascinated me throughout life. I am quite comfortable in that field of work. The related classes I’ve taken at CMU include ART 105, ART 115, CPS 165 (web design), and I’m currently in ART 135 (computer graphic design). I never got lower than an A- on major art assignments. In high school I had over four semesters of art education. I have an eye for what looks good and the drive to achieve it. For three years now, I’ve created and sold my own custom built longboards (skateboards), of which custom graphics were generated solely by me. These graphics were printed and custom die-cut on vinyl, which I can flawlessly apply to proper surfaces.
