The first two weeks of the rest of your life...
I'm the new guy. New to the city, new to graphic design, new to the EdLab. Nine months ago I left a lucrative but tedious job as an electrical contractor in my hometown of Seattle to relocate and study graphic design. After experiencing the American marvel that is New York City, I fear that I may never feel fully content in any other place but here... My first two weeks here at the EdLab have been positive leaps as well. What I've enjoyed most about my experience thus far has been the approachable, receptive nature of the program. I've worked on numerous projects already, from Ian's animation-heavy brainchild Future Imperfect to collaborating with Chia-Ling to brand and advertise an upcoming series of art exhibitions. I've been able to get a few bites of everything. This open, "buffet-style" setup has fit my transition nicely, as I survey where I might best fit into the design world. It's also been refreshing to work alongside inventive, driven people and to be a part of the creative process that goes on here. Looking forward to the rest of the summer!
