Here I will give an introduction of myself, along with how I began designing. My interest came about 3 years ago where I belonged to various online communities designing signatures. This gave me a basis of graphics, type, colour and presentation. After a few months, this soon evolved into a wider range of work when I set up my own small design company online.
After advertising my site, I started having a flow of requests for web layouts, banners and logos.This taught me a lot about design and helped me understand the applications used in the industry. My communication and business skills were also improved during the period as well learning about the sort of design work that I would be expected to create during my career.
- Adobe Photoshop: 3 years
- Adobe Illustrator: 2 years
- Quark Express: 2 years
I am currently studying on a National diploma in Graphic Design course, which involves many different aspects of design such as:
- Visual Studies
- Illustration Graphic
- Design History
- Desktop Publishing Multimedia Design
- Website Design
- Image Manipulation
Aside of designing for clients, I am also learning to code my web layouts in valid css/xhtml. When I feel confident about applying css, I plan to add it to my list of services.
