A plethora of topics really, but depends on whether it is for a project I am doing or something in my spare time. For designs, I tend to look a lot at typography and Bauhaus designs. I don’t limit myself to just that though, inspiration can be found in the oddest of places.
Just the other day I was watching a YouTube video on the earth and ended up coming up with logo ideas for an identity project I am working on. Also, music plays a large role in my work. Like everyone, I have days silence in the idea department. Sometimes it just takes the right upbeat feel of music to bring it out.
I enjoy reading, watching movies, spending time with my loved ones, traveling when I can, and experiencing things. Although, if you ask anyone I know, they’ll tell you I don’t go anywhere without collecting a well designed flyer or commenting on the layouts of anything and everything. Design is a way of life for me.
Currently, for classes, I am working on a poster design for the A flu as well as a display to draw your eyes to the hand sanitizer dispenser… I’m also, getting together my portfolio and resume. Two days a week you’ll find me in the Tetriz, LdMs’ printing center, and I write for this blog as well as have my own Blog of Inspirations. I am also working on freelance designs. I think that sums most of it up.
I’d say I am more focused on the print aspect of design. You know; posters, booklets, flyers, business cards, identities, and such. However, I also know some CSS and HTML and thus have been tinkering with that aspect of the net. I will be forever learning and adding to my specialty and building new ones. 🙂
Currently, I am listening to B94 on iTunes radio, a radio station in the states, and the song Paparazzi by Lady GaGa is playing. I must say, I really enjoy her theatrical videos and performances.
When I am working, in general, I tend to be listening to music or watching something. Rarely do I prefer silence when I am designing and just about always be caught with a bottle of water and snacks surrounding me. If you hang around lone enough you might be able to spot me dancing and singing in my seat. Haha.
Welp, at least you pick easy questions, Fonts. For my future in design, I want to find the firm “for me” so to speak. The firm that feels like a home away from home. Where not only is everyone a co-worker but a team with a friendly environment.
Growing up, I was raised that you go to college to train for your career and when you are picking your major you choose a passion. This way you might actually want to wake up and go to work every day because you enjoy it.
On a grander scale, I want to have the ability to do freelance and have my own firm that is the environment of fun and inspiration. I am always over flowing with ideas and want the opportunity to implement or explore them freely. I want to create designs that inspire others and effect people.
In the personal arena, I want to follow my passions; have a grand library, but not too grand, travel and eventually have a family.
Well fonts, thanks for the… hmm… exposure, I am going to get back to creating now… oh but before I go, feel free to Tweet me at TABdesigna Ciao! 🙂
