Media Designer at some place
Comox Valley Canada
My name is Nicole Dennis; I’m currently a student at North Island College studying web and interactive design. I have been working on my degree with my big orange PC laptop for the past two years and I intend to graduate in April 2012. My favorite computer language I have learned so far is PHP. Currently we are working on using the YII framework which has been making dealing with databases to be a more pleasurable experience.
Prior to beginning my degree with web I worked independently as an Illustrator and designer for print exclusively and attended Art school, majoring in Illustration and print design theory. My experience as an illustrator is mainly in traditional media, acrylic paint and graphite, doing fantasy illustration for casual clients. Recently I have purchased the brand new Corel Painter 12 and am attempting to learn to use it well enough to produce some high quality colour paintings. So far I am really enjoying the program; the paint profiles made available in Corel painter are nothing short of amazing.
For design the programs I enjoy working with most are Photoshop and Illustrator, I have been working with these two programs on a regular basis since CS was released. I adore all designs with clever typography, info graphics and textures. Also I have the firm belief that Vector graphics, smart objects, and blending modes are the best thing since apple pie.
