Introduction: Sandra Frankel

Hi All,

My name is Sandra Frankel, by now everyone should know that I am the spontaneous, at times loud, and small girl in your Experience Design class. I love to travel I have been to a few countries since I was young. I was given birth to in the coldest of winters in the year of 1991, this all took place in my hometown where I was born and brought up, in Stockholm, Sweden. Ever since I have known that I am the youngest in my first family I not only like, but love to have my voice heard therefore expressing my opinion(s) comes naturally to me. As the youngest, I’m not always taken as the serious and motivated woman that I am becoming. And as a Designer of any type, your voice has to be heard.

At this time in my life I am currently pursuing my major in Graphic Design. It all began when I decided to check out a workshop in the year 2007 called Experience Design. One of the hosts was a current Graphic Design Manager at Citytv; she showed us some of her employees’ creative works. At that workshop I got a chance to have a one on one Q&A with her and from there my inspiration blossomed, and my doubts of other career paths were over.

In 10 years I see myself traveling the world getting inspiration from many different countries, their cultures, their history and so on. One day I would like to work for a Graphic Design company such as, Citytv or any company that allows creativity to be acknowledged and explored. And from the experience I receive I would love to become a freelance Graphic Designer, traveling the world and hopefully making an impact, that may make a difference in the world. I set high goals for myself to show that anything is possible. And as I always say: “If they can do it, so can I”

Graphic Design has become my focus of interest, and in the past couple of years I have studied Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign. As well as photography, it has become one of my favourite types of mediums, because I can capture a moment that is occurring, and if I’m not satisfied I am able to upload pictures and edit on Photoshop. I also take into account drawing, painting, and exploring any surfaces and materials to create interesting productions. I also know how to use Microsoft Word, Powerpoint and a little bit of Excel. I would really like to learn how to use Adobe Flash, Adobe Bridge, Adobe Dreamweaver and to learn how to make websites.

I hope that gave you an interesting tidbit of myself, and I hope to get to know you all for the next couple of months 🙂
