My strengths all seem to come from learning through my Diploma level of Btec Graphic Design. Studying Fine Art and Graphics has allowed me to generate and develop ideas through sketchbooks. In these subjects I have used photography and photoshop to an beginner/intermediate standard, I also invested in a 13³ MacBook Pro by Apple which I love. It helps me generate art pieces that has received a lot of compliments. In Graphics, I have had to reflect on ideas so that I could meet the mark scheme. I think my passion for learning comes from my attitude in high School, I was brought up in a positive environment with lots of encouragement that helped me a lot with school. I may not have had the best grades, but I have always had an enthusiasm to learn and especially for art.
When I come up with an idea I dont really see any ways of improving them. This needs to change during the year, I need to learn to develop properly otherwise my ideas are not going to be fully realized.
In the next 3 years I am going to have a lot of opportunities, mostly set by the university and others I have to set up myself. Live projects are going to give me a good idea about how to deal with clients and what their feedback is going to be like. Student life is going to help me socially, might make me a bit more confident in myself and help me over come my shyness and the fear of speaking in front of crowds which will then help my work.
I feel that maybe, if I let these threats get out of control, it will affect my performance when working. The idea is to recognise these threats or fears and control them in order to produce my best work.
