My life up to now

Where I’ve come from

From an early age, I have always been interested in design I used to draw roughly about 4-5 hours every day, I used drawing as a way to relax and feel more at ease with my self as a person. As years past I learnt more about drawing and the creativity behind drawing. This made me want to draw more and become a designer of some kind.

By the time I was half way through high school, I learnt allot about personal computers how they run and what they can do, because i wanted to explore this for me self, I bought my own drawing software for my pc called “Paint ShopPro” this allowed me to create my own drawings as well as having fun creating them in a new environment. Since then I have purchased more software such as “Adobe Photoshop” this software is very similar to “Paint-Shop-Pro” but allows me to use more creativity in the drawings I do.

After high school I decided that I wanted to no more about pc’s and the environment in which they are used so I did a course at Wakefield college called “GCE In Applied ICT” this taught me allot about pc’s and how they are not just used for design and fun, I learnt how to successfully build and create my own pc as well as learning all about networking, web design and the laws that are used when accessing a pc. This is when I learnt that I could fuse my talents for pc’s and design via web creation however in this course there was very limited web creation available and the only software I was able to use was front page, this is when I knew that I wanted to know allot more in this particular skill so I decided to apply for a full web design course.

Where I’m going

I am attending Wakefield college at thorns park. The course i'm doing is "HND in interactive media". From this course I hope to gain enough experience and qualifications to start work in the industry. I would also like to learn new ideas and creations which will help me get there, along the way I will to pick up allot of inspiration which will enable me to improve in design and help me get the job I want. In the future I would like to work in the industry of web design for a few years, this will give me great experience for setting up my own business in design.

How I’m going to get there

To make sure that I get the things I want in life I will work to my full potential, making sure that all my work is to a high standard and always in on time. To make sure that all my work is in on time I will be creating a time planner which will enable me to work in my own pace as well as finish all the work on time.
