Coding never lies, comments do!!

Coding never lies, comments do!!2

Hi, I am Nabanita Chakraborty. I am a student of ARENA ANIMATION,PARK STREET and my journey has almost come to an end.

After schooling, everybody told me that my ultimate career timing has begun. But I didn’t only want to do graduation, I was also interested in doing something creative and different. So I decided to do my graduation from a private college and also researched on a creative career. Then I found Arena Animation, Park Street. I noticed that APS is a very popular and reputed institute of Graphics, Web Design and Development. I was inspired by getting the ex-students feedbacks and comments and they are already well-settled in their own field.

Then, I joined Arena Animation, Park Street, and I started my GWDD course. Web is very special and interesting to me. Initially I was scared but gradually I fell in love with the subject. After starting I realized that it’s really interesting and very easy if you understand. Doing coding is ultimate relaxation to me.

Apart from studies, I also learnt team coordination and team work on the day of our Monthly Activity. On that day, we didn’t study, we showcased our creativity, our hidden talents. We got to know our GWDD family members and friends closely.

The faculties of APS are very helpful and inspiring. My teacher was very helpful and very supportive. His teaching style was really awesome. Not only course subject, he taught me how to become a good Web Designer and Developer and also how to become a good human being. He gave me guidance and helped me to achieve my goal that is why I got my appointment letter within 3 days before my course ended. I am very thankful to my teacher and faculties for helping me throughout my entire journey in Arena Animation, Park Street. Thank you APS for always being there for me.

I will miss my friends, my Pinocchio Lab and my entire APS family a lot. Thank you for this breathtaking and amazing experience.

Hello! I’m Bhaswati Ghosh. I’m going to share my journey of 15 months course in Arena Animation, Park Street.

As a student I always have an interest in creative fields and never wanted to choose the stereotype career options. Now-a-days Graphics & Web designing is a great career option. So I choose to enter this field to become professional. Joining Arena Animation, Park Street is one of the finest decisions that I had made in my life.

The very first thing I want to share about Arena Animation, Park Street is, the atmosphere is very friendly. All the faculties are very helpful & they did answer all of our questions without any delay.

I feel lucky to get admitted in Graphics & Web designing & Development and learning web design & development under the guidance of my respected Sir. He is one of the best persons I have made in my life till now & the ultimate source of my motivation to be focused on my goal. He never teaches us in bookish oriented manner & keep encouraging us every day to learn more and more new things. His teaching method not only helps to improve our way of studying but to become a good human being. I’m very thankful to get the immense support, encouragement.  Above all GWDD is like a family. We also get the opportunity to express our creative skills, to work as a team in ” Monthly Activity”. It has been a truly unforgettable journey with GWDD family of APS.

Thank you APS for giving me the platform which I needed.

MY EXPERIENCE IN APS WITH GWDD

Chetna

Hi! My name is Chetna Kumari and my course has almost come to an end. Right from the time I started researching institutes during my college days, Arena Animation, Park Street, was among those I was targeting. The things that caught my attention was its reputation, position and experiences of the ex-students.

Graphic Design has always been one of my creative interests and when I joined APS, not only were my skills sharpened, but I also discovered hidden talents that I had within me. Apart from studies, I also got the opportunity to showcase my talents on our Monthly Activity Day. I learnt team coordination and team work and I also got to know my friends better.

The faculties of APS are very sincere, dedicated and approachable. Every time I missed a lesson, I got the opportunity to do extra classes and I was provided with the study material the very next day. The course assignments did an extremely great job in strengthening my skills.

My teacher was very helpful and very timely in answering all my questions. Not only did he teach me how to become a good Graphic Designer but he also taught me how to become a good human being. His passion for the subjects, he taught me, really inspired me. I am extremely grateful to those who have been part of this beautiful journey and of course, APS, for making me the person I am today.

My experience with APS has been a wonderful balance of skill, fun and friendship.MY EXPERIENCE IN APS WITH GWDD

“TALENT UNUSED IS TALENT WASTED”

BLOG PIC

RITIKA GUPTA,GWDD,ARENA ANIMATION,PARK STREET

Hello Readers! Thank you for appreciating my last blog. I am here with yet another topic to put light upon.

When someone is born, he/she enters into the world with their distinct attributes, which in a way, are different than others. These attributes include talents, which becomes a person’s asset for a lifetime. God bestows everyone with some talent or the other but it is a human’s sole to duty to polish it and take it far.

As we start growing up, we gradually start realizing our talents and the fields we have interest in. Some convert their talents into their careers, while others leave behind their talents for their careers. The choice is definitely of an individual whether or not to use their talents. Being successful is very important in today’s times, Money, wealth, standard of living , everything depends on how successful you are. Being successful can earn all these things for you. But let me ask you all a question, can being successful really buy you happiness? My answer would be “No”. We find happiness in what we love doing and what we are best at. If a person loves dancing but spends all day working in front of a laptop just to earn, he/she doesn’t make time, to actually work on their talents. This may bring them their monthly pay but their self-quality gets deteriorated. In a hoard of being successful , we often ignore what our inner-self wants.

One may feel that many talents cannot bring desired success. Yes, it’s true , but out of 24 hours in a day or 7 days in a week, we can take out sometime to polish and make use of our talents. Likewise, I am learning Graphics and Web Development & Designing, but I make sure to take some time out of my busy schedule to write blogs, poems, quotes and even dance, basically to do all those things where my talent lies. A talent left unnoticed, will become obsolete with time and may vanish one day. I can give various examples for this, my father can sketch really well, but due to his business and family duties, he hardly gets time for sketching. He has locked his passion for sketching somewhere in a deep corner of his heart and the key is lost. Would you like this to happen to yourself? I guess none would want to experience this . So before the time runs out, make time for the little talents God has sent you with and employ them for your happiness.

I would conclude with my self-statement that “Talent is that Gift of God, which comes with us, grows with us, and gets old with us. So before it dies, let it live to its fullest”.

WHY SHOULD A GWDD STUDENT FOCUS ON UI/UX DESIGN?

chetna_kumariWHY SHOULD A GWDD STUDENT FOCUS ON UI/UX DESIGN?

UI design stands for User Interface Design while UX design refers to the term User Experience Design. User Interface Design is the design websites, software applications and machines with the focal point of user’s interaction and experience, the aim is to make the user interface simple and well organized. User Experience Design is the process of strengthening the customer satisfaction and faithfulness of enhancing the usefulness, ease of use provided between user and product.

UX design includes every aspect of a website, from site navigation to individual page layout. It’s calculated to create the optimal interaction between your business and your potential customers, and it’s informed by analysis of current user behaviors. Good UX design is seamless, smooth, and useful — achieved through the attention to the finest details as well as the big picture.UI design is a balancing act between technical functions and visual cues meant to keep users on a page, on a site, and choosing the behaviors you’re looking for — making a purchase, signing up for a newsletter, and so on. The key to UI design is the understanding of what your base is looking for and helping them to find it easily. It only makes sense, therefore, that UI relates directly to conversion rates. Slow load times, hard-to-read type, complex navigation, and confusing site architecture quickly turn users away, while clarity, elegance, and simplicity — the hallmarks of good user interface — make conversions more likely. Aside from this, the typography also plays a significant role in enhancing the usability of a website.

Actually typography forms 93 % of all website components and needs special attention from web designers. The textual content has a great role to play in making any website appealing to the online visitors and therefore it should be optimized for readability, convenience and graphic balance.

When design focuses on user experience and user interface, it delivers measurable results, in the form of more conversions on sales pages, increased frequency and number of sales, and a more profitable bottom line. That’s real value. And it’s the real importance of good design.

“A SUDDEN INSPIRATION”

blog_ritika_gupta“A SUDDEN INSPIRATION”

Ritika Gupta,GWDD,Arena Animation,Park Street

Hello Readers,

I am back with yet another different story up on my blog (an inspirational one this time!).As we all know inspirations can come in the form of anything and anytime. Be it small or big, an inspiration will always leave a lasting impression on your mind. Sometimes, they become the reason for changing your viewpoint towards certain things in life. They empower you in ways manifold and enriches you with enthusiasm.

Here’s one such story from my end that I would love to share with you all. As known to all, these days women are matching steps with men in all the spheres of life. Be it career, business, education etc., women have excelled in all these platforms. But still in our Indian Society ,male majority has continued to be on the dominating side. A few days back I went to a personalised gifts store for my personal work. As I entered the store I found lots of varieties of gifts and items neatly kept and arranged, three men stranded to attend us(one out of them I mistook to be the owner). I went ahead and told them my requirement, on knowing so the person attending us told me to follow him to the office as he wanted me to meet the owner of the shop. As soon as I entered the office I found numerous staffs busy working on their computers. Few peons loitering here and there. And a stern-looking middle-aged woman instructing everyone. I was amazed to see the lady, as each one of the staffs were being led by her among which the majority were males. Soon I was in the lady’s chamber sitting face-to-face with her. She told me she was the owner of this firm and she has been handling it all alone since 10 years, has 27 male employees under her and 4 female employees. By today she has spread her business in almost all the major regions of India and that too solely. I was taken aback by her achievements, works and her leadership quality.

I even told her that she must be an inspiration to many women in our society and congratulated her on her achievements. After certain discussion and negotiation, I left the place, but her words and works accompanied me along.

I felt extremely inspired and motivated after my encounter with her. She came as a sudden inspiration to me, that will have a lasting effect on my mind. She is definitely an example of women empowerment in today’s time. Even I wish to run my own business someday and put my skills to the best use. I would also like to add that she was somewhat around 45-50 years of age, and is a big example for all the women of her age-group.

“A day without a mobile phone”

By  Sanchita Sharma,  GWDD Student, Arena Animation ,Park Street

 

blog-sanchita“A day without a mobile phone”

I am damn sure a second just after u read the blog topic your minds ran away wandering what a day it would be without your one of the most used asset in today’s world, your cellphone. This blog topic however was a result of a sudden ongoing conversation with our mentor Somnath sir when I too ran my mind of how my day would be without my cellphone.

Technology nowadays has reached a cloud’s height where all your life’s queries,the communication criteria,the fun side everthing can be reached with just a finger touch.A phone at present has been made so eligible that it can fulfill all your minutely detailed needs without going anywhere whether the need being booking a transport for your everyday travelling to connecting to the smiling faces of our loved ones,from playing games to sending an important email to a client everything is at your reach with this smart device.So now if I would imagine my day without it would be terrific.My morning starts with the yelling alarm breaking my best to weirdest dreams all at once forcing me to quit the leisure time and move ahead for my day. The uber booking schedule to move for work ,listening to songs while travelling ,co ordinating for work with colleges one among the major work of mine. Leaving from class comes the “care call” my mumma’s call concerned about my safety. Moving ahead for playing the everyday role of a dance instructor the important playlist set for classes which requires this gadget too.The everyday girl gossip without which a normal girl feels almost incomplete ,obviously you’ll agree with me on this.Not to forget the most important social media apps facebook,instagram,snapchat and whatsapp which is now almost equal to everyday’s meal.So in short the list is huge and I can keep writing and writing about it.Therefore my day would be super tedious without my dear phone what about yours ?? oh!!! you have started thinking already!

‘LIFE BEFORE AND AFTER JOINING GWDD’ by Ritika Gupta ,GWDD,Arena Animation,Park Street

pic

Hello Readers,

There comes a few events in our lives, which changes our lifestyle, our habits, and the way we look up to things that comes in our way. These changes may be negative or positive. Few changes may build you, while others may totally destroy you. Changes comes either to make us or break us. And one such change came into my life which I would want to share with all my readers.

Before joining GWDD, I worked as a Dance Instructor at Sangvi Dance Centre but due to some major health issues, I had to quit dancing. And hence, the gap between leaving this job and joining GWDD at Arena Animation Park Street happened to be nearly 6 months. These 6 months were the worst 6 months of my life where I had nothing to do. My self-confidence became zero and I used to sit idle just wondering what really I can do with my career. My morale gradually gone down and I felt no less than a loser. One fine day, my Dad made me realize that I had a creative skill in myself which I can use in building up my career further. And after days of research and self-interrogation, I finally joined Graphics & Web Designing and Development (GWDD) at Arena Animation Park Street. Since that day my life completely changed. I regained my confidence back and I started enjoying my classes and learning something so fresh and new. Everyone in my family started appreciating my choice of choosing this course. My teachers made me realize my potential and filled me with an utmost zest of creating something new each day and becoming successful someday. I started working on my assignments and even started my own page as a Freelancer on Facebook, thorugh which I started getting orders for works. And finally, I was earning again, be it in small amount, but the happiness was unmatchable. I was no more idle and never called myself a loser again. I am very much happy and really feel blessed that I chose GWDD as a career.

I would like to conclude with the statement, “Changes are a way of life”, because if we live the life in the same genre, it will become monotonous and uninteresting. To add the spice in life, changes are necessary. And the way this course changed me, I wish and hope that one day I would definitely stand up on my own feet, and make everyone around me proud and happy.

Art of getting what you want:

bhaws

By Bhaswati Ghosh,GWDD

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

– Walt Disney.

This is one my favourite quotes and I try to follow this. We are very familiar with “Hard work pays off”. So one thing is  sure that dreaming is not  enough. To achieve something we need to work hard, have to be focused . As a kid almost everyone has to face a very common question, that  is “boro hoye ki hobe”?( What will you become in future?) . To be very honest  I don’t have any specific answer . Every parents have a desire to make their kids as  a doctor or engineer in near future . But I am very lucky that my parents given me that opportunity of  freedom to choose. And personally, I myself don’t want to follow the same path. I’m willing to explore something new, something creative, in which I can use my own ideas,where I have the scope to express  myself. Work by following same old rules each n everyday it’s not my cup of tea.  I can work hard for a purpose which will give me satisfaction at the end of the day. I know walking down a new path is not easy, there will be obstacles, and there will be chances to get lost. But taking risk is better than regretting .I will try my best, I have to.

The work of the graphic designer is to make sure that the graphic designing  conveys the emotions and answers all .Nowadays  in this field there is lot of scope. Graphics & Web designing  is a great career option. So I choose to enter this field & to become professional. That’s why I got admitted in the GWDD (Graphics, Web designing & Development) course in Arena Animation, Park Street.  With the immense help of my teachers, I’m gradually learning new things every day. By attending the seminar, master class getting lot of information about the graphic and web industry and its technological side, which will surely help me to achieve my goal. I also want to mention the monthly activity we do , that helps me to gain the basic idea of what is “team work” . I am a newbie in the web platform, looking forward to learn more from my teacher and to become a professional graphics & web designer under  their guidance.

Lastly I want to share what I truly feel, that failure, getting depressed, criticism is part of life, we can’t skip this. But belief in yourself, courage to struggle, maintaining safe distance from negative people & thoughts  helps us to keep going , that’s the art of getting what we want. NEVER GIVE UP.
