Making Yourself More Likable at Work

I really liked that reading, you may notice some things that you haven't notice before and try not to do it, besides people is not gonna like you for doing it, you might hurt them without noticing, so you have to be really carefull and be yourself at work, to have a good environment you have to create itl.

An Interview

1. Could you please define graphic designing in your own words?
For me is to create something that is atractive to people, get them interested in the product or in other cases, create a good appearance of something that was not appealing to the public.

2. What influenced you to pursue graphic designing?
All influence that a teenager could get, television, to see great publicity when you have an interest in that area. But also, i always loved art, drawing, and some other things that made me think Graphic design was the career for me.

3. Could you please describe the educational process required to become a graphic designer?
in my opinion, will be to have creativity, learn how to use the most advanced programs, and try to make things diferent to what we see every day.

4. What are some of the skills that are involved when designing?
Drawing, know how to use computers, creativity as i said before, and to find fast solutions when a problem appears.

5. What job considerations were you looking for after you completed your education?
i would love to work for a company that works for other companies fixing images, logos, and all the appearence of it.

6. What's something in your student life that you enjoy the most.
Weekends :D , free hours, but inside my student life i would have to say english class :D

7. What is the most difficult aspect of graphic designing?
When the teacher doesn't like the concept that you are taking to design something, and you have to work with one you really don't like.

8. What are your plans for the future?
Move to a country where graphic design is appriciated.

9. Point out your most personally gratifying moment in graphic designing.
After seeing all the work i had to do is done, and i'm happy with the result.

10. Why would you recommend graphic designing as a career?
i wouldn't recommend it, if you like it already and you are good at this type of things, i could tell you that i really enjoy it, that is a lot of work but you learn a lot without having to smack your head againts a book, that most of the part you have to be really patience, and that is something that is worth learning.
