Haven't been able to update my blog in a while due to all the events that have been happening. Last Friday marked the end to my school life and the beginning of my real one. I've enjoyed my years at San Francisco State University and I have met some of the most amazing and inspiring people through my stay there. I truly want to thank all those who have supported me throughout my journey at SFSU and helped shaped me to become the designer I am today. I wouldn't have thought of becoming a Graphic Designer until I switched my major from Photography to Visual Communications and I am really glad I did. The possibilities and opportunities lately I've gotten have been ideal and perfect in every way. During the commencement, I started to have flashbacks of when I first set foot in the halls of the Fine Arts Building, not knowing anything about any of the Adobe programs except for Photoshop. Or even the array of supplies graphic designers utilized like X-Acto knives, spray mount, drafting pencils, etc. I've learned so much and I regret nothing. One of the coolest things happened at our commencement too! Larry Baer (CEO of the San Francisco Giants) spoke at the ceremony!! His speech felt as if we won the World Series as he kept mentioning the Giants and so on. After the whole shabang, the tripod aka the best friends I've had/known since Kindergarten, Roger and Jeff, along with Icia and Camille, went to BJ's to celebrate and it was the icing on the cake to making the perfect day happen. We all caught up with each other and cheers to the next years in our lives. So what's next on the agenda? I am currently building my portfolio up with designs which isn't from school to show people my own sense of style. I will also be taking up concert photography again and planning on going to this year's Warped Tour. I am excited to see so many bands in this year's lineup and its been a while since I've gone to a concert so it'll be refreshing. And... I will be going to LA as a post-graduation trip with Roger and Icia which I am very excited about! Well, I guess that sums up my life for now. Until then!
Stayed up allnight working on this video for the DAI pre-graduation reception and I am pleased that everyone enjoyed it and thought it was well put together.
I wouldn't have gotten through school as well as my whole life without these two in my life. I want to thank my dad and mom for always being there and letting me follow my dreams without judging me or forcing me to change my choices. I love you both.
Here are the 2nd half of the people in my life who I want to thank for helping me through my stay at SFSU. Without these bunch of people, I don't know I would've made it out alive. Some of the best friends anyone can ask for. (Derek, Ryan, Sam, Dana).
Can't forget about Luis! Glad to see him back since he lives out in LA. These are the people that got me through Graphics 1, 2 and Digital Media 1. I will never forget out times fooling around and listening to music on turntable.fm. This is definitely not the end of us, but the next chapter. (I want to thank all the friends I've made in the DAI department too. I haven't forgot about you guys and even though there are a bunch of you, you know who you are!).
Missing some of the fam but I am glad my big sisters came out and supported me! FAM > Everything!
Toasting to the real world! (Beer Sampler from BJ's)
Came home and found this little guy in my house. My nephew's new dog (which he hasn't settled on a name yet). Welcome to the family!
Haha tried to do one of those Hypebeast Essentials photo with my grad. stuff. (EPT Honors rope, Grad Cap, Diploma Holder).
