Career Exploration Paper

For someone who works in the field of Graphic Design, they wouldn’t call it a job, It’s more of a hobby if you are truly passionate. It lets you explore your creative side and let’s you see what you can create. You’re always doing something different, it’s never the same thing. That’s what interests me the most, a lot of jobs have the same kind of routine. Thinking about how I would need to do the same thing over and over again just makes me sick. Even though it isn’t the best job when it comes to pay, it does come with a lot of freedom for when you want to create something different. The reason why I think I can succeed in this field in because I hate being like everyone else, I like to see what is different and

I have listed 3 of the type of designing I would be interested in. A graphic designer who designs for companies, or who designs logos. Would get paid roughly $53,000 a year. A video game designer would make $81,000 a year. Those kind of designers go through more training and more time in order to do what they do. Animation is one of the key things that they have to master in order to be in the field for video game designer. Some of them create the backgrounds or the the movement of a character. There is a lot of details that go on with a video game designer’s job. The last one is Cinematographer, they get about $48,000 a year. They are more focused on the art of making motion pictures. For instance, movie directors or music directors well try to film with different angles or effects. This will make it different than other films. People can make a film look good with high quality and different angles and it seems way better than someone who is just filming random …show more content…
You don’t really need one in order to be a good graphic designer. As long as you have good work that you can show a company that you want to work for than they should want you. But some people do have some degrees, which is not a bad thing. Some of the degrees people have are a Bachelor’s degree, some only require you to have a associate’s degree or certificate. And of course you need some type of training, in my opinion it would be recommended to have some type of work you can show in order to make your chances of getting hired or getting into a specific program that you want to get in even better than other students. The point for showing your work is to show that you are interested in this field and that if you are given a reasonable due date than you can make anything look really good. Some of the of the interesting facts that I learned about graphic design, is that they have this program where they help prepare you with actual work and you can get a certificate that can help you get a job better than some other students. The ages range is from 22 to 65 years old for the students, students have access to the silkscreen and letterpress print shop and woodworking studios. Some of the based classes would include animation, web design, expressive typography and environmental

    There are not really any set in stone educational requirements to be an artist, but it is very well appreciated by potential employers. If an artist has specific credentials, as well as an extensive portfolio that prove that he or she really knows their stuff, that artist would be very well off in finding a job. Now don’t get me wrong, an artist can go to college and acquire a very well respected degree, but if that artist’s portfolio is not up to par with the standards set by their credentials, then that artist may have a tough time finding a…

    The way Lamott explains how a first draft is the down draft, is something I find very interesting, yet struggle with in my own writing. I often struggle with being emotionally stable towards my work; never thinking it is good enough. At times it’s pure bliss and excitement over the creation which I have achieved, and other times its immense hatred toward the writing, or the assignment alike. I often struggle with simply getting my ideas down on paper no matter how incoherent they sound. When I take the time to prepare really rough first draft, get all my thoughts on paper, and revise, my stress level is severely reduced, and my emotions, along with paper quality, are greatly enhanced.…

    I request that you accept this proposal for my final project in Writing 465. Overall, I would like this project to benefit underclassmen students in the graphic design program at Winthrop University by providing a mentor program to assist, guide, and care for them as they prepare for the Specialization Review. The development of this mentor program would create a less stressful environment. The mentors would also help improve the student current portfolio and offer a better understanding of classes before and after the review. If students are more comfortable and have someone to look up to, they are more prone to stay in the program, pass their review, and graduate on time.…

    Learning to clean as I go would be really beneficial to me. Sometimes when I see a client waiting on my I feel as though I should rush in order to meet with them as soon as possible. I know that’s not the correct way of doing things, but I know how it feels to wait on someone and I don’t like it. This is a skill that I am working on and I am sure that I will become better at it overtime. Often times I put myself in my clients situation, when I should be more focused on what I am doing so I can provide better services to my…

    I had not thought of this as an influence on one’s work, but for the graphic design industry, it is major! Designers have to create fresh ideas and make them appealing to their customers without being discouraged by the glamorous works of others. With Miss Sorensen just beginning her business and journey, she admitted that her skills are not as keen as the professionals who have been involved with graphic design for decades, and said it is easy for her to feel dejected when comparing her work to theirs. Another challenge she admitted to dealing with in graphic design is her customers’ demands. Many people conjure up an idea in their mind and think this idea is spectacular, but then see it on a physical display and are disappointed with the outcome.…

    A lower cost would be the most ideal in the location. Office space: Even though my business is mostly retail, I want the option of office space. This way the financial aspects of the business can be handled in a different area than the selling of the product. Some of the major competitors in my area therapy centers. These businesses are located fairly close to my business, but since I won’t be offering therapy until the future, and I offer essential oils, I am not worried about how close they are since our businesses are different.…
