A Personal Connection

While exploring the relationship between graphic design and public relations in my blog series, I have been able to more deeply reflect upon the values truly important to me. Knowing what I enjoy in my fields of work is most satisfying considering it took most of my undergraduate career to decide what I am passionate about.

Graphic design and public relations both require meticulous editing. Editing copy and critiquing a design are some of my favorite parts of the work process. Pursuing both fields has taught me to self-revise, an ability crucial to constantly improve.

Above all, both fields not only require, but they celebrate creativity. Although my family favored a medical career for me, or anything else they deemed more practical, it was a great relief to find two pursuits that combine functionality and innovation.

The exploration of the relationship between graphic design and public relations has enhanced my appreciation for both fields and confirmed that I am doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing.

    Yeah, the experience of writing these blogs have been highly beneficial for me as well. It is cool to see what topics we have gravitated towards and what naturally seems to have our attentions.

    The aspects of leaving it up for the class to see was an interesting dynamic because we knew that other designers would be looking at it, and I think that helped a lot in searching for topics that were both creative and unique to our roles as AVT students.
