What I’ve been up to: Graphic Design

I have not made a blog post in a very long time and I’m not gonna lie, it’s because I’m lazy and enjoying the parts of my summer when I get off work. All I’ve been up to is working and stuff. The diversity of things I can write about are so diverse I’m going to split them up into different posts. So here is my first little topic: Graphic Design! 

Before I decided to become a Business major in college my senior year of high school, I always wanted to be a graphic designer. I heard they don’t make much and it is a dying trade though so I opted for Business instead. However, at work I do lots of stuff that involves graphic design like banners for landing pages and nice little product ads. 

The most fun I have with graphic design is definitely creating backgrounds and abstract stuff. I have always loved cool squigly lights in backgrounds and always wanted to make some. So I tried! Below are some of the designs I made (through tutorial and original). All of it is really just meant to be practice to get familiar with using different tools in photoshop.

So yeah that’s all I’ve done so far with my designing. Really hard to plan out an awesome abstract design! You can leave feedback if you feel the need to but I mostly just wanted to showcase my beginner projects! =)
