UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA (UCO)
Graphic design is a very fulfilling and ever-growing field. As a junior graphic designer and student at the University of Central Oklahoma, I see each project as an opportunity to hone my design skills and help my client reach their goals. I appreciate that graphic design is a discipline that challenges me to solve problems and generate solutions. Being a designer also allows me to communicate beyond verbal and written communication. Graphic design expands my means of communication to written, verbal, and visual, allowing me to better serve my clients. Visual communication is arguably one of the most effective means of presentation. With this tool in my possession, I can expand my effectiveness and voice. Practicing this will help me become a more well-rounded professional, not just a professional designer. I also enjoy playing the piano at my church, dabbling in photography, cooking, mentoring young boys, and coaching basketball.
IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS AND CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
