The question is to answer, “Why graphic design?” I will respond with, “Why not?”
Though I have never been super “artsy”, I have always been creative. As a kid, graphic design was never been something I considered doing “when I grew up” but I look back now and wish I would have found design sooner.
When I first visited SU as a high schooler, I came to see the architecture and interior design programs (I have always admired design in all forms). However when I applied, I wanted to get into the sport management program. Then my sophomore year, I added a dual with PR. During my short time in public relations, I took GRA217 and that was it– I had found my calling. And I haven’t looked back since.
Though graphic design is amazing, I’m not sure this is the type of design (haha get it? Typography?) I want to be doing. Coordinating and creating display/set design for a brand (i.e. Anthropology) is my dream. Through this course I hope to learn more design principles and expand my creative process. I want to practice more designing for emotions and feelings.
I’m looking forward to helping love typography a little more every day. … PS … One of my second cousins — who’s just a little older than you — is a brand set designer. She loves is.
