Who am I? This is a big question that I found difficult to answer as I am unsure of a path after university and I don’t feel I have a distinctive style at the moment.
I am a Graphic Designer because :-
I live in a world where as a graphic designer I was brought up with advertising has been there for us. I have used the rise of social media to influence my designs. I intend for my designs to link to the world we live in today. I want to inspire the modern world we live in.
I believe that graphic design is the future and if it wasn’t for design we wouldn’t get around in the world. I want my designs to be seen by people even if its a small percentage.
With the increase in social media I want to create design that links directly to that. I want to make animation, film and designs that influence younger people to become influenced by my designs or my message.
As non designers they think there are more imprtant jobs out there. Design is everywhere and people are unaware that graphic design includes signs for streets and building, book covers, film, television and other media.
My style of design is simplistic but use of colour is a strong part of most of my designs. Colour makes a statemnt and make the overall design eye catching
I try to use colour that arent always seen together to give the design it own unique stamp.
I want to enjoy what I do and make it my own.
Graphic design allows me to be free and the abilty to do whatever I want.
Inspiration: Shepard Fairey Eddie Opara Milton Glaser Joe Sugg
I was born creative and I want the world to know
This is my manifesto that I have piece together to show who I am as a designer and what I felt has helped me to become who I am.
Feedback on our Manifesto
After a hour tutorial with Ian explaining who we are as a designer he explain that its okay not to know what we want to do yet. The idea behind this digital me project is to create a CV and portfolio that can always be changed its a peice of work that will never be complete.
After coming away from this tutorial and looking online I have found a interest in designing for online website mainly fashion like ASOS and boohoo. This get my interest in fashion and design. I feel that this is more me than working for any graphic design company. I want to work somewhere I will enjoy.
