“BELIEVE, TOIL AND RE-DISCOVER”Debdatta Pal

Debdatta Pal, GWDD, 2nd SEM (APS)

Hello readers! I am Debdatta Pal, a student of GWDD. While my course here is at the verge of completion, I would like to share my experience with you all.

Often there comes a moment in life when we may become so clueless about the path to continue our journey with, that our frustration and disappointment reaches a pinnacle. Well, I did face such moments and I guess many of you have as well. When stumbling among options to take forward my career with, one fine day I came across this very course, GWDD in Arena Animation – Park Street’s website. Even though I had some knowledge of Graphics but initially I was not much aware of the entire procedure of Web Design and Development. But when I gradually started learning it here, a new liking towards this subject started growing in me. You can say the subject is kind of addictive. The more I am engaging myself into it, day after day I am getting attached with it.

As everyone says, learning never stops. Whatever might be our passion towards, believing in ourselves and working hard immensely for it, is the ultimate key.

I have learnt that while trying to meet the deadlines, I could bring out the best of myself. Through learning GWDD, I have started to acknowledge so many of my positive sides I never knew I possessed. It’s as if I am able to unlock a new aspect of myself every day and thus re-discovering myself in the process. Also in the past months, I have got an opportunity to participate in a logo contest organised and certified by the Uttarakhand Government which has further motivated me to work harder.

A journey is associated with proper guidance and support. And my journey here wouldn’t have been possible without my parents’ support and my mentor Somnath Chakraborty sir’s guidance.  His vision and knowledge are what making this journey enjoyable and resourceful for me.

In today’s fast forward world, everyone thrives to get a work done within a blink of eye and thus making things as digital as possible. Hence, a career in Graphics, Web Design and Development is a perfect choice where there is scope of utilizing the gained knowledge in making a better tomorrow.

The Effects of The Social Networking Sites On The New Generation

An article by Soubhik Nandy

Today’s World is a global village. Everyone is connected to one another by the internet. In the past, the communicating and sharing among people was restricted by distance. But now, that procedure is very fast. This is the period of social networking. There are many social networking sites. Such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and so on.

Social networking is a tool used by people all over the world to communicate and to share everything. However, this kind of technology is more harmful than good. Social networking affects our lives in many ways, including our communication, self-expression, loneliness & friendship.

A lot of students love to spend time with social networking sites. Because, social network provides them the freedom to do whatever they want. They can upload whatever they want. They can talk to any other persons. This is the why they can’t concentrate in their studies. Social networking sites are affecting the students largely.

The excessive use of these sites, is affecting their mental as well as physical health. Students don’t take their meals on time and don’t take proper rest. The parents should check their children when they use the internet for wasting their valuable time. They should be on guard about its usage. The thing to remember is that a student’s life is about studying, learning, and gaining variety of knowledge. They should be good person. But they are getting involved in social media.

One of the main problems arising out of social networking is identity crisis. The type of actions taken by the users and the kind of information they are adding to their profiles are forged and they tend to lose their own identity. Many cyber experts are worried about this identity problem. The lives of people, especially students is largely influenced. So we should eliminate its overuse.

why I choose Graphics and Web Designing as a career

Samrat Ghosh explains:

WHY I CHOSE GRAPHICS & WEB DESIGN AS MY CAREER

I am a student of Graphics and Web Designing from Arena Animation, Park Street.

This is my first blog. The theme is why I choose Graphics and Web Designing as a career. Hmm! Being a creative person it was my dream to do something in creative field. It may be Freelance Painting, maybe it’s Animation or it may be Graphics. Before joining this course I studied B.Com (Honrs.) from Vidyasagar Evening College but somehow I thought that the stream is not for me. I was studying but not learning anything; going to College every day, solve the equation, match the Balance Sheet but there was something missing in my life and I recognized that my “Heart” was elsewhere.

My parents always say that whatever you do if you don’t do it from the heart it becomes useless. So, after completing my graduation I discussed & shared my views with my parents & teachers who are my guider, motivator, & friend and finally decided to join Arena Park Street.

But the question is why GWDD? Actually Painting is my passion & hobby from childhood & I tried to join Govt. Art College; gave an entrance exam but didn’t get a chance. Here was another option for me to join GWDD because when I was reading the courses overview, I seemed it would be perfect for me. I would try to complete my course very sincerely & can get a job in a short time period. I am still undergoing my course, Graphics part is almost over, now I step forward to Web World and I try to my level best.­­

Last of all, it is a great pleasure to talk something about my teachers. Saptarshi sir who is my Graphics teacher, providing excellent education quality to his students. He is very helpful & friendly. Now I join Somnath sir. He is a wonderful person; outside is very hard but deep inside it’s transparent. Thanks to him for inspiring me to write a blog.

WHY I CHOSE GRAPHIC DESIGNING

Oyindrilla Biswas shares her thoughts on the subject

My interest in Graphics kindled from where I was working earlier. Earlier I neither had any idea nor knowledge about Graphics Designing. After completing of my graduation I joined a private company as a junior accountant. The company was into print media. The whole day I used to see other employees busy playing with colours. Though I was a junior accountant over there, I used to get mesmerized and attracted towards those colour games. Ever since I have been eager to learn this game. However, no one helped me to learn the ropes.

Despite knowledge about the Industry I lagged behind and I kept following the senior graphics designer. After observing my passion and dedication towards graphics, one day my manager called me up and offered me to join as a junior graphics designer. Within a fraction of second I accepted the proposal and this was my beginning.

Then I got a project to do Mahabharata in the form of digital painting which has now been published in the form of a book. I worked very hard under the guidance and supervision of my senior. Till then I had very limited knowledge on graphics but I learned the tricks of the software through intense suffering, on my own.

But I wanted to gain more knowledge in Graphics. Then with due permission of my parents I joined Arena Animation Park Street. Many people suggested me to go to Arena Park Street as it provides best graphics course in Kolkata. Through this source I came to Arena Park Street and joined GWDD (Graphics, Web Design & Development). Though I am not a good artist and also I don’t have any drawing skills, but I loved to think about new designing. I used to research on the internet about the latest trends in graphics designing and their technologies. Today I love Graphics more than anything else. I enjoy playing with colours, I enjoy doing Graphics and now Graphics has become my Best Friend and a best part of my Life.

Graphics as Imagination

An Article by Bhartesh Jajoo (Student of Arena Multimedia – Park Street)

Graphics is not only an art, but it’s also imagination which makes you see the unique things which are not available in the world, but available in the mind of the people which makes them available in the world. Day by day, we see the new things. How it comes is from the ideas of different people. People are representing themselves as artists by their unique drawings.

A Drawing by me

There are some people who can’t express their feelings in words, but they can let you feel it through their imagination by Graphics. From the normal drawings on the paper to the legendary paintings are the types of graphics. Graphics are not only the software, but the creativeness of the people in any kind of thing which can let you see those things are graphics. Graphics are alive in the mind of the people.

Web Designing & Development as Career

An Article by Ankita Bhattacharya (Web Student at Arena Multimedia – Park Street)

The 21st Century saw an explosion in commodities and services. Our growing economy has created millions of buyers. In today’s hectic and complex lifestyle websites provide one of the most powerful tool to connect buyers with sellers. This is more relevant in light of our PM Narendra Modi’s “Digital India” programme and Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s vision of connecting every Indian village with internet by 2020.

As per Google survey of 2013 only 45% of small business houses in India has their own website. Hence smaller businesses are not maximizing the benefit of their internet presence, but it should be pointed out that those taking advantage of it are really experiencing significant gains. So why are so many still missing the boat? The main reason that it is important for business to have a website is how people are likely to find one. These days most people will go online search for a product or a company before they make a purchase. The points above justify the selection of web designing and development as a profession of today as well as tomorrow.

The World Wide Web was introduced by Tim Berner’s Lee in the year of 1989. Sir Tim Berners Lee is a British Computer Scientist. The different areas of Web design include Web Graphic Design, Interface Design, Authoring, including Standardised Code and proprietary software, User Experience design and Search Engine Optimization. On the other hand, Web Development involves in developing a website for hosting via internet or intranet.

This unique profession which calls for-

  • Graphic Design Theory
  • Communicative Skill
  • Business Sense
  • Creativity

is taught at- Arena Animation, Park Street.

One may take up the course considering both job opportunity as well as satisfaction of a creative soul.
