Hi, my name is Noah Prior pursuing a BFA as a graphic designer with a minor in film studies. When pursuing this type of field at Colby-Sawyer, I found myself leaning towards certain Adobe programs than others when I am designing. Some of these programs that I am more comfortable with are Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, and InDesign when needed. Another medium that is important when conducting my design work is photography which can be incorporated into my design work.
When thinking of my design philosophy and making process, it can be a little tricky. My design philosophy is based on not following the standards of design: being unique is more important to me when I am designing a project. Following the standards can sometimes make me lose my creativity. Yes, there is a need for structure and organization, but not to a point when it comes to my design philosophy. My designing process starts by getting inspired by other designers within the project that I am working on. I try to come up with a specific word when brainstorming a current project to get my head flowing on ideas.
One thing that I enjoyed about Colby-Sawyer College is the fact of having unlimited use of studio space when working on projects.
