Coming to an End

Standard

It’s odd to think that in a week we will be done our second year of Graphic Design. I can remember the first day of second year like it was yesterday. Between all the design challenges I’ve faced, the late nights and early mornings it has been a busy but interesting ride. It has also been a ride that has gone by rather quickly. When we started this blog at the beginning of second semester I thought it would be a good experience to explore more into the design world. I am very active in social media and blogging already, so having a blog isn’t new to me.

What was new to me was discussing design in my blogging. I am heavily influenced by music, whether it be in my photography, or design. I have a blog dedicated to my experiences with music but I have never had anything specifically for design. I’ve always been very confident when talking about music because of the background I have with it, and knowing that you have people that are interested about what you’re writing gives you the confidence to write it. Before we started this blogging assignment I didn’t think anyone would take interest in what I had to say about my thoughts on design. I’m glad we had this assignment because it has shown me that there are people who will read what I post and that it works the same way as different online communities.

I find enjoyment in sharing my experiences and thoughts on the things I am interested in. I think it’s a great way to learn from others and to discover more things in design. I’ve read posts and read up on design on websites before, but I had never done so much research behind different things. Through the research I did I have discovered many new and exciting things and ways to further my learning in design.

I can’t promise that I will stay to any set schedule or pattern for continuing this blog, but I would very much like to continue posting on it. I think it’s a great experience for new designers and a great way to put ourselves out in the design world. Through our second year of Graphic Design It has been a crazy ride. I’m ready for our third and final year, to continue learning about what I love to do, but for right now I’m most excited for our much needed break.

Thanks Jess.
