Hello. As this is my first blog post, I shall introduce myself. I am Cody Coffman, a senior at Key Learning Community. I have been drawing since I was 5 and have been lucky enough to come across the field of graphic designing. Over the past year, I have taught myself to design logos, album art, social media banners, and various other stuff along those lines.
Although I taught myself to design, I have grown a lot more since my time as an apprentice at SuperPixel. As a class for my senior year, I have to go out in the community and get “on the job” training for a field of my choice. I just happened to run across SuperPixel and I couldn’t be happier. The whole team is great to work with and it’s just a great environment to learn and have fun.
So far in my experience, I have been asked to do various things for this business. The first thing I did was review a couple websites to catch and fix bugs, like display issues on mobile devices. I have also done various things designing-wise such as my most recent project which was designing a YouTube banner for a company called Reaction Strike (shown above). Along with that, I also have designed PowerPoint templates, created textures for people to buy, and I have been working on some vector icons as well.
Overall, I hope to gain experience designing stuff for companies and what not, and experience working with such great designers. This also gives me a chance to build up some work for my college portfolio, so that doesn’t hurt either. This is a grand opportunity for me to have and I am going to cherish every moment of it.
