Realizing that the best thing about my job in the communications field was creating layouts, promotional materials, and advertisements, I jumped at the chance to study graphic design when given the opportunity to go back to school. At MATC, my skills were updated and upgraded. I learned about package design, typography, concepting, digital media, and the latest in Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. I discovered just how much I enjoy all of it, especially the creativity of design and the challenge to do it well. I’m eager to use my newly expanded skillset in the workplace.
