My First GWDD Activity Experience

Avani Jatia, GWDD, Arena Animation, ark Street.

Hi! I am Avani Jatia, a student of GWDD at Arena Park Street.

It was that time of the year where everywhere there was light and joy. So to spread the same message we decided to light up our activity board with full of excitement and enthusiasm. Arena Animation, Park Street has this trend of decorating the activity board based on the festivals. On 11th of October, the students of GWDD came together to work towards this. It was my first activity experience. As the theme was Diwali the students decided to make the art board bright and colourful. We started off by making a design of Rangoli at the bottom of the board. Keeping the Ganeshji and Lakshmiji as the main highlight, the rest of the board was filled with firecrackers and Swastik. The day was filled with creativity, music, laughter, teamwork and hard work. In the afternoon we all had tasty lunch with our teacher. Rangoli is a symbol of joy and happiness, which is why we decided to cover it with glittering, sparkling and festive colours. Our teacher not only teaches us to excel in the field but also to become down to earth and a good human being. The Pinocchio lab is not a classroom but like a second home to all the students.

I had the best experience and it taught me how to manage pressure and work together as a team. From the experience I also learnt time management because by five o clock the board was to be completed and put up on the first floor activity board.  At the end of the day our effort paid off and it gave us a lot of satisfaction. This day will never be forgotten and I am looking forward to many more.

Pooja Kumari Singh,GWDD,Arena Park Street

Hi,This is Pooja  Kumari Singh student of  GWDD course. I want to share my journey  at  Arena Park Street.

After my graduation, people suggested me  to do something stereotype course, but my bend of  my mind was  towards  web. Then I came to know about web designing course at APS and I decided to go to APS for  GWDD course. Then I attended few classes over  there and decided to be regular student and it felt like home to me.

At Arena my life is totally changed.  In web I came to know about the importance of Graphic and Web Designing. Our sir helped us from starting. He brings out best from us  and encourage us everyday He scold us because he care for us. He always motivated me to do practice and research more in class. Gradually, coding  become  important part of mine. Here ,no one can scare coding,programming.It is one of the life’s best lesson, not become only a web designer or web developer but also how to become a logical person.

Here I learnt about team work  and coordination. We sing, eat, do masti  and do work together.  The environment of APS is very friendly and faculty are also very helpful. The  associated web professional has a very good experienced and he share  knowledge without any boundary,  liberally with us. He is not only our faculty, or mentor, more than that , as a friend.He goes out of his way to help with any questions not covered in the course content. He puts his efforts to make his students career from the very first day of the course.

Its really  great institute for learning. I am thankful to APS for giving me a goal that I always wanted to achieve. Now I realize I have made the right decision to join APS.

THE AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL GWDD FAMILY!

THE AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL GWDD FAMILY!myphoto

Riddhi Modi, GWDD,ARENA PARK STREET.

 Hi! I am Riddhi Modi, a student of the GWDD family at Arena Park Street.

It has been a surreal experience for the past year that i have been here at the Arena Park Street Institute. I started the GWDD course half heartedly since I wasn’t really interested in this field so initially into the course, i wasn’t putting my heart into it. But as time passed i realised that the entire team behind GWDD, that is the students and the teachers, work like a family and the warmth, affection, love and appreciation that i received from them made me gradually feel like I am part of that family. This emotion of belonging brought a major change in me. I felt like I was a part of something productive.

 

The GWDD family is a one of a kind. Everyone here as a unique presence. We laugh, eat, work, study and do many other activities together. Everyone here is always ready to help you with any kind of work, be it personal or study related. We share ideas, plan our work, do research, and solve problems among ourselves. We all await that one day in a month when we all come together for our monthly activities, do something creative, eat, drink, listen to music and have fun and forget all work pressure and deadlines. The doors to this family always remain opened for all the members. People don’t mind spending their entire day in this room and still can’t get enough.

 

The head member of this family is our teacher, and he is our leader in every sense of the word. He is one of the most passionate teachers i have seen until now. He loves to bring out the best in people and motivates us to achieve higher than we think we our capable of. He believes in each one of us which in turn makes us believe in ourselves. He is diligently strict, generously friendly, courteously funny, ideologically adventurous and considerately affectionate. He has the best interests for everyone keeping himself and his priorities at the bottom of the list.

 

Initially i would always be late to class and wasn’t very interested in whatever was going on but now I make sure i’m on time and look forward to going to class now and showing my work to people who appreciate my hard work wholeheartedly. They make me feel more confident about myself and give me hope for a brighter future. This family has changed me mentally and behaviourally in a good way and that makes me feel I’m at a better place in life, than i was a year back. I’m grateful for their love and support and wish to always be a part of this WONDERFUL GWDD FAMILY.

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.
