PEHLI BAAR HAIN JI

Hello readers. I am Manjyot Kaur. I am pursuing my bachelors in commerce from St. Xavier’s College (Autonomous), Kolkata along with my certificate course in Graphics, Web Designing and Development (GWDD, 2nd Semester) from Arena Animation, Park Street.

This is my first blog about my first seminar at Arena Animation. The subject was Typography and Blogging itself. Hence I got the motivation to write this.

The first session was on Typography. Starting from what are pictograms and phonograms to anatomy, every bit of information on it was beautifully explained by our teacher. I never knew about the em-space  and en-space. Various fonts which we incorporated in our graphics are obsolete and some are not even appropriate to use. Answers to some of the questions were known but not most of them. Our teacher had explained each element of the anatomy of any font. I never thought that letters also had anatomy like our human bodies do. The end of the session gave us a feeling of frisson. We had to create our own font. I never thought someone would ever ask me to do that. Somehow we did it and there was one winner like in the every race.

As and when the second session started, we all were eager to know the commonly heard term, ‘Blogging’. I have tried writing blogs before this. However, after the session, I would rectify myself. We got to know about various sites like WordPress and how blogging is a trend these days. The definition of blogging in one line would be ‘sharing your stories online by writing them’. Blogging is a crucial element of digital marketing. As a web development student it is important to know that content is king of any website. Hence this session was crucial for us.

At the end, we were also provided with information about making your curriculum vitae. This was like cherry on the cake.

I believe that gaining knowledge is a continuous process and lessons outside class are very important as we cannot learn about a subject wholly in restricted timings of our classes.

SUDDEN HOW! LIFE BECOMES GET A NEW PHASE

Hi Guys, I am Bhavna Agarwal student of Arena Animation Park Street, Digital Advertising And Digital Marketing(DADM)(2nd semester).This is my first blog through which I want to share my views with you all, about my transition from first phase to birth giving phase(from 1st semester to 2nd semester).

As I was so far from Arena family, I didn’t know how’s the four walls of Arena will treat me if I get enroll myself in this institute.

So, when I got enroll myself in December, 2018, from this time my life has become changed. Guys, I have done B.Tech in computer science from Luckhnow University in 2014. After that I had done my post-graduation i.e., M.B.A in computers and HR in 2016. Actually I have a very distinct story. When I completed my B.Tech, I wanted to get placed in some professional life. I had given many on campus and off campus interviews, some has given me correct evidence and some negate me. But in the end of my B.Tech, I got selected in an interview for a private organization, in Delhi. Then suddenly what happens, my family has been shifted to Kolkata due to business norms. That time I didn’t know anybody in Kolkata as it’s a new place for me. I have never been there before this time.

Suddenly by God’s grace, I got a chance to I enrolled myself in Arena Animation Park Street. Now, I have started to enjoy my course as I was so enthusiastic to know graphics and marketing. In spite of all the academic work, I had learned some extra-curricular activities and to became a part of Arena family. All the time software tools and their working struck to my mind to make me what to do next. When I get free time, practice chases me.

Though I am a house wife, I have to do all home chores. Not all but I do cooking, have to give my sometime to each and everybody, some socializing, my personnel work and all other things which every girl follow after their weddings. In spite of all, it’s my pleasure I am enjoying every needle of this course. I listen my mentors, I involve almost in every activity of APS.

Now my first semester has been completed and I am walking towards my second semester, our seniors have welcomed us with a nice balloon decor in THOR Lab. They were guiding us, what would we have to face in 2nd semester. Seniors told us that you people have to be concentrate on your work because Somnath Sir is very passionate towards his work.

I think, what I did in past it’s not sufficient and I have to build myself strong, reliable and tolerant. Earlier I had learnt tools and techniques but right now, I have to implement them with my great efforts. Now my life has become changed again. Earlier, I was down to earth personality but I have become idealistic.

I thought, I have to substitute myself to become strengthen, patient and passionate one to survive in this adventurous world. My thought process has changed entirely after entering in this dreamy world. Earlier I was introvert but now I am an extrovert. What a wonderful well of knowledge and experience tapping inside me is making me fantastic. And I think there is no greater skill in life than patience.

At the end I’d like to say Life is very short. You never know when it will get change. So, guys do everything in your life whatever you want. Whatever runs in present, opportunities comes in future.

THE NUMBER OF INSPIRING PEOPLE YOU MEET ALL TIME AND THE RANGE OF ACTIVITIES AND ENTHUSIASM TURNS YOUR LIFE AROUND SO MUCH

Perks of being a APS DADM Student

blog image

Hey everyone! I am Meghna Gupta2nd sem student pursuing DADM (Digital Advertising Design & Marketing) course from Arena Animation, Park Street. Along with this I am doing my B.COM  (bachelors of commerce ) from J.D Birla Institute.

I’m very excited to write this blog as it is the first time ever I’m ever writing a blog. My journey in APS has been beautiful and life-changing. Every day I learn something new and interesting. In this blog I will share my experience about the recent seminar I attended in APS on the topic ‘Digital Marketing benefits in GWDD (Graphic, Web Design and Development).

As interesting as the topic, the seminar was also exhilarating. The seminar was held on 21st June 2019, and was conducted at the ‘Thor Lab’. We all know how marketing has evolved globally by going digital and it has become an important part of every organisation. With India going digital more the concept of digital marketing has come into the picture. The seminar was conducted by my mentor, Somnath Chakraborty Sir. He has a different approach and doesn’t believe in teaching theoretically. He makes us understand everything practically and has always been preparing us for the industry. He explained exactly what is digital marketing and what are the different aspects connected to it and how it is useful in every career and why every firm today needs a digital marketer. He often says, “digital marketing is an ocean”, an ocean of techniques.

A firm requires a digital marketer for it’s promotion, brand building and buying and selling of goods efficiently and many other activities. He made us acquainted with the term “SEM” (Search Engine Marketing) and “SEO” (Search Engine Optimisation) which are major parts of digital marketing.

He further explained the various ways to optimise a website and the factors such as text, content, images, videos and inbound and outbound links affecting the rank of website in a SERP (Search Engine Result Page).We also had the honour of having our centre head, Ramesh Ruia Sir to share his knowledge with us, which was extremely useful. He told us how the population is distributed among X,Y & Z generation and how to hit the right target audience using a right digital platform.

He unfolded the importance of ‘content’ in a digital platform. He said, “At the end everything comes back to the content.” He also gave examples from his own life and what role did digital marketing play and also explained the concept of Google Analytics. Both of their discourse on the topic was very engrossing and enlightening.

Between the seminar, we got a break in which we all classmates seniors and juniors really bonded with each other and had a nice time. The day ended with a relaxing chai and samosa session with my seniors and Somnath Chakraborty Sir.

Thank you APS for arranging this captivating seminar. It made feel that I chose a right career for myself by choosing DADM as my course and made me realise the need for a  digital marketer in the society.

Experiences That Matters

Experiences That Matters27332733_210656996163164_8341032753999385392_n

Hello everyone! I am Shrrija Das 2nd sem student pursuing DADM course from Arena Animation,Park Street.

This is my very first blog which basically pens down my experiences I have had so far in these very four walls of Arena Animation. I can undoubtedly assure you that the last 10 months of my 1st sem(comprising of Digital Advertising Design) here were nothing but an enriching experience about learning something new and assimilating my thoughts and ideas into one place.

It is before joining Arena, that I had this idea, that someone who has great knowledge about painting and designing could only go for these type of courses which wasn’t totally wrong but wasn’t totally right either. This course will not only allow me to learn something new in the fields of designing but also help me out with marketing as I am pursuing Bachelor Of Management Studies from St. Xavier’s College,Kolkata and would also become an icing on the cake for my resume.

It is also believed that –“Knowledge is the only thing that this world can’t take away from us”. And I always go by this notion.

Coming to the faculty members, my 1st sem mentors were Sayani Ma’am and Deepak Sir. They taught me Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere, Adobe Audition respectively. Both of them were equally supportive and it is because of them that I could learn how to get my scattered ideas and creativity together.

Often, Ma’am used to say –“ Make it simple, but significant .” Trust me, this saying works wonders if you understand it.

Talking about the 2nd sem(comprising of Digital Marketing) taking place in the “Thor” lab, it has only been 5 days with Somnath Sir and I can tell that he is one of a kind. He is also known as ‘Singham’ for a reason, but he is very persistent in his work and that is to teach us the right ways in building a great core straight for the industry, which shows that he truly cares for his students. From the very first day, he has told us that Digital Marketing is not going to be as easy as what we have learnt in 1st sem and that it is not about tools but he will be there for us whenever we need him only after we try to solve the problem ourselves in the first place. I believe, with his support by my side and by listening to what he says I can work on my loopholes.

I have also attended a seminar conducted by him which proved to be an effective one and I am also looking forward to attending more of it. Meghna is my classmate, we have started our classes together and she has always helped me out with the problems I have faced so far.  A wonderful initiative was also taken up by the seniors, Burhan Mullamithawala, Mariyam Dharar, Rupankan Bhattacharya & Salini Pal to welcome us as the freshers to the Thor lab, where we learnt many things about the lab and got to know about sir a little more and that what we should do and what we should not. Overall, so far it has been a great experience and I am really happy to be a part of Arena Animation, Park Street. I am looking forward to having more great experiences as long as I am here.

Always remember to “Be thankful for everything that happens in your life; it’s all an experience” – by Roy T.Bennett.

Thank you for all your time to read my first blog. I hope you like it and stay with me for my upcoming blogs.

“Tum GWDD activity ke piche ,GWDD activity tumhare piche, too much fun”

Sattwik Banerjee,Arena Animation,Park Street,GWDD,_2nd_Sem

Hello readers!, a very warm welcome to all. I am Sattwik Banerjee, student of  Arena Animation Park Street, GWDD(2nd) Semester, wants to share my experience with you all about our recent GWDD monthly activity. which was  on 25th January, and the theme  was ” 70th Republic Day Celebration “.

Every month we decide a topic for our activity, make a proper layout regarding the same and execute it to the best on the final day with my GWDD family. Every month I wait for our monthly activity. This is not just an activity, it gives us refreshment which is needed after a full month of frantic schedules and work pressure. We start planning our activity a week before the activity date, an event is created on social media platforms and every student of APS is invited to the upcoming activity. This time, we got a golden opportunity to show our love and passion towards our nation India . If you missed my first blog check it out in the link below :

https://arenaps.wordpress.com/2018/08/10/my-gwdd-is-my-identity/

Now let’s see how me and my family execute the work. As usual all of us gathered in our  “Thor Lab” (our classroom) by 09:00 AM under the strictly informed by team leader and we started unwrapping our props and bags. We started, clicking a snap and posted it on social media, warmly inviting everyone to join with us. All of us already had a proper planning in mind, according to which we all were supposed to proceed.

My job was to make a perfect base and make a tricolor flag. My team mates were busy with their respective work. Our team took part in the activity with an energetic approach. After a while, we took a chai-break ( Source of our energy ) which was needed to maintain our energy levels for the activity. We were listening to patriotic songs while working .

” Aye mere pyaare vatan, Aye mere bichhade chaman
Tujh pe dil qurabaan ,
Tu hi merii aarazu,  Tu hi merii aabaru Tu hi merii jaan…”

When clock struck 1:30 PM , we had lunch break. This was the foremost part of our activity because we took lunch together including Somnath Chakraborty Sir. After completing our lunch together we were again back to our work, but this time with little pressure because time was passing by like speed of bullet, and Somnath Sir warned the deadline time that we could completed our work within our deadline at 5 PM. But we break the myth by completing our work within time. After completion our day activity, we take a group photo with our model.

Our team worked really hard and we paid our tribute to our country through our activity . Our final work was executed well as planned.

Burhan Mullamithawala , GWDD, 2nd sem,Arena Animation  Park Street

Hey guys! My name is Burhan Mullamithawala and I am a 2nd semester student in GWDD. I know it’s going to be tongue twister for everyone to pronounce my surname but you will soon get a knack of pronouncing it properly.

This is my very first blog which I have written in my life. I would like to give you a sneak peek into these past 8 months in Arena Animation, Park Street.

Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” – A quote which has changed me for the better in these past months.

I am a B.Tech graduate from Netaji Subhash Engineering College, Kolkata.  Then my mother came to me with this idea about website designing as I had earlier shown interest in my school days. I read through a lot of other job prospects and I found GWDD to be most prospecting, so I joined Arena Animation after careful consideration. After joining Arena Animation, Park Street I saw what I was missing out on after my school days.

During my 1st semester my faculty were Deepak Sir and Sayani Ma’am. They taught me Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Coreldraw very efficiently .They are one of the coolest most supportive teachers I ever got. They helped me in every step of the way. But I didn’t know whom I was going to come across next.

My teachers did say that my 2nd semester is not going to be a walk in the garden as the course was going to get tougher and more over the teacher helming it is someone I have not met in my life before. I hoped for the better and it’s been one month now in my 2nd semester of web designing and I can easily say that I have found a great teacher in Sir Somnath Chakraborty. He is very diligent towards his work and more than that he truly cares for the future of his students. He’s strict when it comes to completing our work but that is only because he wants us to push our boundaries and expand. He has an unconventional way teaching. Something I have seen very rarely in my life. He scolds us with his bizarre eye and hand gestures when we are not concentrating on the things assigned to us by him but he pampers us too with all his love. I have already started making brands for my portfolio and I believe I’ve become more hardworking under his guidance.

I have also attended two seminars till now under Somnath Sir, and they have been very productive for me. He makes sure that each student gets the most out of it and challenges us to ask more questions.

He also tells to us to connect with our seniors for our work issues or any matter that’s riddling us. My seniors Kaushik Dalui and Salina Marandi have guided me in my problems related to my brand and portfolio designing. Mariyam and Annapurna are my classmates and they’ve been very helpful too when I had problems in Adobe Flash. We have become a good team in this past one month. We joke around too which eases mollifies the stress as our Somnath Sir says that bookish, robotic life will not help us in life and we should live a little outside our academic life.

I can easily say that I’m very happy to have joined Arena Animation, Park Street and more so I’m very fortunate to have got such supportive mentors and classmates who are always there to help. I have become more open about my problems and I do not have to look far for their solution anymore.

Thank you for taking the time to read my first blog. I hope to write more in the coming months. Stay tuned!

Impossible means I AM POSSIBLE

Nancy Agarwal, GWDD, 2nd Semester, Arena Animation, Park Street

So,here I am Miss Nancy Agarwal to put down my thoughts and feels about my journey to GWDD till date- in my first blog. Before moving ahead I would hold gratitude for each and every person individually who is taking the initiative to read my blog. Well, it has been eleven months, since I got enrolled in this course, where the first eight months I was indulged in graphic designing (1st semester), came across various software like Illustrator, Photoshop, CorelDraw. And then I became a member of the 2nd semester which involved the most crucial rather significant subject that was the web designing.

The first eight months went off very smoothly as it was all about learning tools and menus and off course held a little essence of creativity in it, but it was all the same like learning and retaining and nothing diverse as such, for which I would like to thank the faculty members Deepak sir and Sayani ma’am who really assisted me in learning these variety of software. Precisely, I learned certain things but did not enjoy those eight months, and also “as a person I remained the same”.

Now let me impart you guys one thing about myself that I am , rather I was a very fearful, impatient and sentimental kind of a human being- hanging on with all sorts of negativity in my mind and an introvert kind of a human.

Frankly speaking 2nd semester transformed me( in and out)-it aroused my interest towards my subject, my humanity ,and most importantly I could visualize myself somewhere in my works. Starting from my orientation till today everyday-there is a new gesture that Nancy gets too embraced each day. Though this is a very slow process but an effective one.

“Slow and steady wins the race”

It enriched me with more and more of patience, erasing off my negativity and fear that I had in my subconscious mind (24 X 7) , making me a better human being. And all of this would not have been possible if SIR- Mr. Somnath Chakraborty, my mentor and teacher would not have been there. He is one of the best teachers I have met till date. He is very devoted and passionate towards his students and works. It is his shout and anger that has transformed me to a creative person rather just being a book worm. It is his words that fill me with zest to work passionately and eagerly. I am able to put on my efforts sincerely towards my work just because of his motivational and inspirational speeches that he gives in his every class which helps me to deal with my subjects in a serious manner. Still there are lots to learn and lots to retain. I will try my level best to act patiently and respond fearlessly to this tough but not the impossible journey of GWDD.

So, with this I would like to take a leave before we meet again (very soon) in my next blog—until then thank you guys, take care, stay happy, stay positive and most importantly listen to yourself before listening to others.

Thank you!
