This week, I tested out Piktochart, an infographic, report, and presentation making website with tons of templates to choose from. Through highly customizable options and beautiful themes, users can create professional and highly effective graphics.

I created an infographic on Avinash Kaushik’s blog post “Experiment or Die. Five Reasons and Awesome Testing Ideas.”

Introducing Artie – The Latest App in Art

This week, I created an app called Artie, for art lovers and those who wish to learn more about it. I used Appy Pie, which is an app building tool that offers customers a range of services and functionalities to help them create their own app.

My app is on the market place here and is also available in a desktop version.

Developing Your Personal Brand Statement

With an eye for design and a passion for print, I design with customer-focused creativity.

This week, I developed a personal brand statement by looking at my current and past experiences. I considered the following:

  • What are some of my essential qualities that I want my audience to know about?
  • Are there particular qualities which will make me stand out from the others?
  • What are my long term career goals?

As a graphic design student with a strong interest in art, I have a sense of design and continue to develop my design skills through school assignments and projects. I highlight my customer-focused approach to my work, which comes naturally to me, and helps me to stand out. It can be difficult to maintain such an approach while working, thus I think it is relatively unique quality. Currently, I am dedicating my time to building my portfolio and learning about the graphic design industry, with a focus on print material. Thus, the emphasis of my “passion for print” is accurate and essential.

Besides content, I considered the following: length and use of literary devices. One sentence is concise and sufficient for communicating my personal brand statement. I illustrated my personal qualities by using alliteration in “customer-focused creativity” to create a powerful statement. Undergoing the thought process of considering skills,  qualities, and long term goals of mine, in addition to length and word choice, I came to the creation of my own personal brand statement.
