I signed up for Codecademy and took some lessons on how to build a website. Below are 4 of the badges I earned through crash courses on how to build a website using HTML and CSS.
Here are screenshots of some of the code I wrote throughout the lesson:

This week, I worked with Harman Sohi on a PSA about protecting your personal information, such as social security numbers and passwords, while on the web. Take a look at the video below!
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.
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.
