I will be graduating from Canadore College as a Graphic Designer in April. A few years ago, however, I wasn’t even contemplating going back to school. I was a Department Manager at Walmart and promotions were within my reach. I was planning to stay at Walmart but a series of unfortunate events changed my plans. Those events include the deaths of a couple of friends and the deaths of David Bowie and Prince, as well as a few other celebrities that I admired. Then my wife and I went to Montreal in May of 2017 and stayed at a place across the street from Ubisoft, a company that makes computer games like Assassin’s Creed and Watchdogs. Suddenly, the idea to do something with my artistic ability seemed like a possibility. Two weeks before classes started, I applied for college and the rest, as they say, is history.
The elements of Graphic Design that I love is, well, most of it, really. But I do like the motion graphics and editing film together, as well as making e-cards. I am able to help others make websites, but I am mainly good at Photoshop. I also can make business cards, movie posters, photo manipulation, menus, and postcards.
