When I was in middle school, Qzone was a very popular blog platform that time, and girls loved to change the organization, layout, or add pictures and anything else we want to beautify our blogs. I did not know what DESIGN is at that time, but I really knew that I love changing normal things more special and I could spend much time on it. Also from that age, there was an app in China which has some similar function of Photoshop, and I would use it to edit almost all of my photos. Now with the development of technology, there are more apps can play similar roles as Photoshop and I download a lot to tone or to adjust images. After I graduated from middle school, my dad bought me a Nikon camera as gift, since then, I fell in love with photography. Therefore, when I had to chose my major, I was thinking why not learn something I have strong interests and do something I really love as my career? then I chose Graphic Design (though I declared Magazine by mistake). I feel extremely proud when the white paper turn into a complete design production, and I love to play and combine types and images to make everything look pretty. However, I still need professional knowledge and skills for more advanced designs, so I hope I can be more prepared after taking graphic design courses.
I’m so glad you found your way into MPD and design, Ivy, and I’m really looking forward to helping you discover and develop your talent.
