Farewell

I can't believe how fast this class went by. I really enjoyed putting my portfolio together, and also being in the lab again for class. When I first started this course it seemed like it would be awhile before I made it here to my portfolio class, and now.... HERE IT IS, AND NOW IT'S OVER. It was a pretty good experience for me overall, and I will take what  I learned from it and apply it in the future. I have no more lab classes after this, so it makes me kinda sad. I will miss having design courses from now on.... but I'm gonna look at the bright side of things!! I'm about halfway through and I've gotten attached to the lab, and designing.

Always Willing To Improve


I've found that constructive criticism has really helped me with my Interviewing skills and also other things. Most of the time we dont get to succeed in the areas that would like to because we don't know where or even how we are steering ourselves wrong. So it really helps to have that guide, and that person that says, " I think your approach to this isnt benefiting you the best. Why dont you try this?" In my interviews I learned that your body language can really play an important factor along with how you verbally interact with the person who is interviewing you. 
I'm always willing to improve myself in more areas than one, so going through my Mock Interviews really helped me to see what I need to brush up on. I plan to use any helpful information to help me succeed as much as i can.

Interviewing & Resumes



I am glad that we are covering interviews this week. It really helped me to improve my skills as an interviewer and as a person evevn more. I have already had both of my Mock Interviews, and i learned a few more things during the process. I cannot wait to try them out in a real life interview, so i will be working on my skills even further to make sure that i do my best by the time that day comes. 
As for my Creative Resume'  , I found it kind of hard to think of an idea at first, but once i glanced at a few examples, I knew what i needed to do to make my resume' a reflection of myself. Also they are a lot more fun to put together than a conventional plain type of resume'. Until next time....

Back in the lab - Portfolio Time!!

It feels good to be back!! I missed being in the lab for a minute!! Anywho, I cant believe its time to dive into putting my portfolio together. I think a portfolio is essential to a graphic designer because it can show off there skills as a person, part of their personality, and most of all their creativity and longevity. And with that being said Those are the exact qualities I want mine to display. Time to put this thing together!!

Peace,

ALMOST THERE!!

So it seems that i'm getting more comfortable with flash as far as movement and timign goes. I still need quite a bit of practice, but i'm headed in a good diretion so far.

Timing can be tricky, but with a little patience, you shouldbe able to get the hang of it at some point. The only thing with Flash is, that its a pain in the butt sometimes and patience is sometimes the last thing on your mind.

Practice makes perfect.

I'll get there soon.

i don't love it... but i don't hate it either :)

well I've gotten into flash a bit more and its really not that bad. i now i don't love it, but a the same time i don't hate it either. my project is looking pretty good, but I'm tweaking it to the finished product.

the only problems I'll be dealing with is to record audio for it and add that in the sync with the actions and frames that I've created in flash. i think even if you hate flash, you'll be able to at least tolerate it a bit and spend several hours like i did just recently and really get into it and experiment and try different things.

FLASH is getting a little easier..... 2ND ROUND.

so far... so GOOD!! it's getting a little easier since I've gotten my hands back into flash. it's still frustrating, but it feels a little easier after getting some help.

sometimes its hard to focus because i don't know where to to start sometimes.
i have an idea of what i want to do, but to put it into action for FLASH is a whole different story.

wish me luck!
