This blog will contain all of the lecture notes and tutorial/studio work done for Graphic Design: Interactive Digital Media.
My name is Gabriella and I am a student at Western Sydney University studying a Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication). As a designer I want to make that challenge peoples initial thoughts about things. It’s important as a designer to keep learning and growing and that’s what I aim to do.
I’ve had the privilege of having hands on experience with Adobe programs as well as being able to run social media accounts and run graphic design teams for students in high school.
