What program did you just complete?
Introduction to Website Design & Creation at Tech Talent South.
What did you build during your time in the course?
We had a lot of freedom about what we could build in class.
While I was working on my portfolio site, I created another about Popsicles, which is inspired by my favorite popsicle stand ‘King of Pops’. I wanted to create a website that is iconic and very colorful to target a younger audience. I designed several popsicle icons to use. During the class, we learned how to use Bootstrap and I applied that to the project. I explored Bootstrap Carousel and Bootstrap quite a bit.
What’s next on your list to learn?
What’s your ideal internship/job?
Because I have a background in graphic design, I always think of the importance of the design aspect. Even though I want to start working as a web developer, I would still love to work at a job related to graphic design. A solid design studio will be a good job for me, as well, as I have experience working as a Art Director. Also, UX/ UI Design and a strict coding internship/ job would give the additional experience that I need.
Interested in startups?
I respect startup companies, even though they might not facilitate a complete system yet. Depending on the philosophy, I would be really interested in working with them. To help a company I respect, I would fulfill their needs and help create new ideas.
Post graduation plans?
During class, I started to reinterpret a friend’s site – ‘Brainfood Studio’. It is almost complete now and I would love to take on any other freelancing work. I’ve also been trying to come up with concepts for my own website and projects to practice coding. I create new brands, design logos, marketing materials, and websites to put in my portfolio.
