Interactive Design

Hey everyone! Nicky here πŸ™‚

This summer so far has been a mix of relaxation and a good amount of hard work. At my summer placement at Formative Innovations Inc. the skills that I am gaining and the work I have completed is amazing! From projects such as web design, branding, video production, editing, and layout design, IΒ worked hard to complete them while acquiring new techniques and ways of thinking.

With this being said, I am able to place some of the work I did on my portfolio, including a few web pages I drafted and helped develop.

Feminist

Hey everyone! Nicky here πŸ™‚

This past semester, I made a pretty “edgy” video for my expressive typography class.

In the video, I explore the meaning of Feminism for me as a woman in my world. I have always had an insecurity with my body, which started probably the beginning of 7th grade. I have small breasts, bigger hips, a wider waist, a bump in my nose, which made me feel extremely unattractive. The perfect image of what a woman should look like has always haunted my mind, to the point of these thoughts becoming obsessive. This made my self-esteem decrease.

Now, after reflecting on who I am and how people actually perceive me, I see now that I am beautiful because I am my own person. This video is a reflection of my journey to finding my inner woman.
