my favorite design finds, current art projects, and more


[ 6 picks ] cyan - magenta - yellow - key

what does that stand for?? CMYK! aka the color model of print design. aka my best friend and worst enemy? haha maybe. but i actually became a graphic design major (well studio art major with a concentration in design) because of magazine layouts, which is what i thought i wanted to do. which is all about CMYK.

see, i started out at the university of maryland in the journalism school. i took two semesters of classes and was like EFF THIS. i just realized, as much as i love fiction or novel-style non-fiction writing, i'm just not trying to write about gov't/politics all day long. maryland's journalism school is awesomeness but it just wasn't for me.
so i switched majors to studio art only for the graphic design classes (of which there were -count them- FOUR). but i had to take lots of other classes (drawing, 3D art, etc.) to apply for the design concentration. and then i realized - wait i can draw! i can paint! i am artistic?! yup, i had no idea until sophomore year of college hahaha =_=

in any case, i didn't get to learn web design nearly as much as i would have liked! so my designing abilities are sort of limited to CMYK capabilities. i'm really good w/ html though~ i had my first website on angelfire at the age of 12. and i did that one website for my computer graphics class too. so maybe RGB and i will become good friends someday? haha only time will tell...
