Anmol K. Dhamrait
As a Faculty Commons Communication Design student, I create poster, postcards, and brochures. My visual communication design skills will enhance my project management skills and creativity. One of my most fundamental aspiration is to become a graphic designer. Once I have mastered these tools in visual communication, I can impact the world through my creative designs. Also, I love to observe colors around me and I do yoga which makes very energetic early morning.
Interning with Faculty Commons, I have several clients I am responsible for and communicate with to help produce deliverables that meet their needs. With the help of the design team and Professor Jordan, my time here has allowed me to improve my design skills and be more confident in my work. Having talented co-workers has helped me to grow. I can't imagine a future without graphic design. My aspirations are to combine my love for graphic design and illustration and help bring about positive change, whether it be in my community or worldwide.
College Assistant and Designer
As a designer for Project Wayfinding, I created a unified degree checklist for every department at New York City College of Technology. I worked as a project manager and marketer for Open Educational Resources. Working with Faculty Commons has taught me to manage my time efficiently and to be versatile when communicating with different clients. Fun facts about me are that I am very meticulous about my work and I like plants.
By interning at the Faculty Commons, I fully utilize my design knowledge and the opportunities motivate me to want to learn more. As a graphic designer, I engage with my clients and provide them with design solutions. This internship opportunity has improved my design, photography, and communication skills. My future aspiration, once I graduate from City Tech I want to become a professional graphic and web designer at a creative agency.
As an intern at Faculty Commons, I design for various efforts around the campus as well as photograph events. I work closely with clients to bring their vision to life, usually designing posters, brochures and bookmarks. My work in Faculty Commons has helped me to develop my portfolio while honing my skills as both a designer and problem solver. As someone interested in social media I plan to use the skills I develop to create an audience for my work. My goal is to learn various artistic mediums to promote my music and animation. One fun fact about me is I want to explore many different artistic fields rather than stay on one path.
As an Intern at Faculty Commons, I have learned that communication with a client is crucial to becoming a successful graphic designer. I use my design skills to help my clients bring to life their posters, editorial and promotional projects. I treat graphic design as a field of visual research. And I look for opportunities to incorporate different styles in building my portfolio. Working along with a great design team helps me to improve my skills. Faculty Commons is a place that helps me to become a multidisciplinary graphic designer. My goal is to make a positive impact on social and cultural issues.
College Assistant and Webmaster
As a webmaster, I oversee and maintain Faculty Commons website to make sure content is up-to-date and correct. Faculty Commons has allowed me to build great communication and working skills with colleagues and faculty. It has also helped with my time management skills, as several projects are being worked on simultaneously and need to be managed in a timely manner to meet deadlines. My aspirations for the future is to be a better web developer and designer that pushes the boundaries of what can be achieved on the web. One aspect of my character that I would like someone to know is that I like to do urban photography!
As a Graphic Designer and Illustrator interning at Faculty Commons, I communicate to audiences with interpretative media. Through my storytelling expertise, I aspire to develop my skills in video production and illustration as a storyteller through proficiency with video and illustration media platforms. Once I have mastered these skills, I can effectively convey stories and ideas to my audience. One peculiar fact about me is my indecisiveness; however, my indecisions have enabled me to make solid, conscious decisions.
The task I performed with Faculty Commons included communicating with clients, making concepts for their ideas, and designing and bringing their ideas to life. This internship is helping me learn Adobe Suite and necessary skills for the workplace. These experiences have helped me develop my interpersonal skills and has improved my communication in a team friendly setting. My aspirations for the future are to become a professional graphic designer in a professional corporation or as a freelance designer.
