Hello viewers, let me introduce myself before narrating my story. Myself Joyita Paul, student of Arena Animation Park Street, pursuing GWDD(Graphic Design and Web Development) 2ndsemester. I would like to grab some of your attentions towards my blog that am creating for the very first time, hope you will find it interesting while exploring it out.
Although sometimes most of us feels uneasy to pen down our thoughts through words but if you have them, there’s always a chance that you’ll find the way out. But I will try my best to share every single experience of mine related with my second home that is none other than Arena Animation Park Street.
Well am feeling very lucky to get such a platform where one can share his and her thoughts without any kind of hesitation. So, without any further do let’s get started with the purpose behind this blog.Few days have passed since I have started my 2nd semester classes by following the path shown by our mentor Mr. SomnathChakraborty Sir. Every day I learn something new and zara hatke under his guidance. In this blog I will share my experience that I have gained in a recent seminar that we GWDD & DADM students of APS have attended with the subject matter Typography and Blog.
As exciting as the topic the seminar was also a brainstorming one conducted by the two most awesome personalities around Mr. Somnath Chakraborty Sir and our Chetna Mam. Saturday 21st September, 2019 it was when the seminar was scheduled to increase our creativity through their valuable speeches. The seminar was divided into two sessions. The first session was about Typography arranged by Mam and the second one was about Blog taken by our Sir.
The fast session was about Typography where Mam explained us the meaning of it and it’s importance in the life of a Graphic Designer. Mam taught us very simply yet very uniquely, she made us learn about the definition of Typography and it’s origin. During her session she made us aware about the usage of fonts and the colour theory that we should apply inour works and one most important suggestion by her “whenever you stretch a font somewhere a graphic designer dies.” Really such a beautiful explanation was been delivered by her which made me very much inspired. She also arranged a workshop for us so that we can enjoy her seminar and most importantly so that we may not get bored by hearing her lectures. She made two groups where she gaveus two themes one is Durga Puja and the other one is Christmas then she asked us to create our own fonts according to the given themes, and the winner will win the new version of Silk Cadbury. After hearing the word “Cadbury” everyone got excited and started their works on making the fonts, after few minutes the workshop got over and the winner was announced and was awarded the Cadbury. Trust me I have never came through such lovely seminars till date. And that was how the fast one got ended with beautiful vibes in our heart.
The next session was on Blog hosted by our Singham(Somnath Sir). He is the Singham of APS from Thor Lab. The ways he makes us teach is very much different than others. He makes things understand to us practically rather than theoretically. He is making us prepared for the industry so that while working as an employee we will never face any kind of difficulties. Somnath Sir always says that “if you can cross my interview than you can easily cross any other interviews out there.” This man is our silent guardian who will never pretend that how much he cares for us, but from inside he is protecting and supporting us. Through his session we came to know what is a blog and what are it’s importance. He advised us how to choose our subjects to write in and what will be it’s contents. He never forces anyone to do something but he only notices the one who has the urge of achieving something. Through his seminar he made us laugh and also made us realise about the importance of GWDD and DADM course in our life. That was how he ended. After Somnath Sir, RuiaSir came in to share his thoughts.
Ruia Sir took very few minutes in explaining us the purpose of preparing our Curriculum Vitae. He showed us some examples and told us to prepare our CV’s on time. One most important thing he told us that we must have to complete our portfolios on time, so that it will be easy for us to achieve our dream job.
That was how the seminar day came to an end. All of us got very inspired by such seminar. Well I fell it is never possible to express the entire feeling about the seminar through some limited word stocks as this are the emotions that can never be expressed completely. I feel such seminars are an absolute need for a student’s personal branding. Attending such seminar makes me feel that I have picked the right road to walk on and this road will one day make me reach into my destination. Thanks to APS for arranging such boost up seminars for their students.
I think people who are creative are the luckiest people on earth. I know that there are no shortcuts, but one must keep faith in something greater than them, and keep doing what you love. So always do what you love, and you will find the way to get it out to the world.
That’s all for today, will come back with my next blog filled with many new experiences. Thanks for reading it out.
