Personal Statement: A Career In Graphic Design

Decent Essays
Since elementary school I have always been interested in design. I would spend countless hours in class doodling different logos, and cartoons. I thought to myself what kind of career could I have with something that I love doing. I though long and hard but never really found something that I LOVED that had to do with art. I eventually discovered that I want to pursue a career in graphic design. In high school I took a class in graphic design and completely fell in love.

Some of these pre-packaged solutions include programs like Small Business Administration virtual campus, which basically offers courses, workshops, publications, and learning tools aimed at helping entrepreneurs. Because my business is going to be aimed at customer service and graphic design I would go with a different approach. I would use on-the-job training for my employees. I think that this would benefit them because being more hands on with computers, Photoshop, and the customers will help them in the long run. There are different kinds of on-the-job training, which includes understudying, job rotation, and peer training. One-the-job training has several steps that need to be taken. The first step, prepare the learner. Make the learner comfortable and make sure that they understand what they will be learning. I would explain to my employee that we would be designing logos, billboards, TV commercials, and other forms of communication to our clients.

The employee would then sit in the room with me and take notes …show more content…
This would not be a problem with the department of labor laws website. The United States department of labor has a wizard on their website that answers most question that I could have about my business. You simply put any question that you have into the search bar and it will do its best to help you. I think that I would use their website because it easy to work and less time consuming.

    My first ever art experience was doodling on a piece of paper when I knew how to hold a pencil.

My focus in this school, The School of Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), is visual communication. I am preparing for the portfolio review this semester and hope I can enter the department.…
