Welcome, or rather welcome back, to CherisaDesigns. This is basically a relaunch of my old blogs, All Things Ennui, Ennui Comics, and CherisadDesigns. The hope is, now that I’m older and wiser, that I will better organized and focused rather than the haphazard, scattershot nature of the previous blogs.
To begin, this site is dedicated to two things, my portfolio and graphic design. Don’t be fooled though, graphic design touches on almost any and everything in today’s world. So an article about the latest video game or movie shouldn’t be unexpected. I suspect at least until the end of the year, most of the entries will feature my art, mock ups of covers, ads, poster, email blasts, kinetic type, and more.
Ah, but I get ahead of myself. For the new and for those who’ve forgotten, I’m Cherisa. I’m a graphic design student and this blog, as mentioned before, will be to show off my design skill and arts, and help create dialogue on design and art. I currently attend Penn Valley and I hope to graduate sometime next year.
I’m skilled in Photoshop and InDesign. I’m working on creating original work in Illustrator. I hope to trade tips with all of you. As such, there will be a month update on important things I’ve learned in class. Hopefully, we can all help each other.
Anyway, I appreciate that you took the time to take a look and I hope you’ll continue to look and comment on this blog as I update. The current plan is to have a weekly update on Saturday about a range of topics. To begin, I’ll start with my graphic design notebook.
