My name is Jarod Pereira, and I am a first-year Graphic Design student at New York Institute of Technology. I’m from Queens, New York and I’ve always been an artistic person growing up. My high school was a CTE school, which offered shop classes that would cater towards different career paths, and I ended up choosing Web Design as my shop class. This is where I learned the basics of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Dreamweaver. Now that I am pursuing Graphic Design, I have been continuing work using these applications, as well as in Adobe InDesign. My favorite classes that I am taking so far have been Computer Graphics I and Painting I, which is an elective.
