It all simply begins with a girl, a hand full of creative skills, BIG plans AND LOTS OF COFFEE.
I am Claudia Galdones. Filipino. Aries. Doggy-Mama. Creative. That’s basically me in a nutshell, but let’s dive into the details.
Since a young age, I have always been a creative individual. From playing the piano to sewing clothes and making miniature things for my dolls, I think it’s safe to say I’ve done it all. But I think the greatest creative medium I’ve taken on is the graphic arts. Being a Graphic and Web Design student at John Abbott College really expanded my knowledge and allowed me to develop new skills. In a way, it is turning art into something “living” on the computer. Packaging, illustration and publication/print are some of my favorite aspects of design (click here to see some of my print works). However, I also really like to do web coding and photography.
Outside of graphic design, I enjoy fashion (sewing), makeup, crafting miniature things, playing musical instruments and drawing. I also take pleasure in cooking/baking and stories. Additionally, volunteering has always been a passion of mine. At the moment, I currently volunteer at my church as a catechism teacher and choir singer. Some of my other interests include the environment, vintage style, exploring (new places), architecture/home renovations/makeovers, and astrology.
My main goal for stage is to gain experience in the design industry. But, I am really looking forward to meeting new people and learning new skills. I hope to stage with a company that aligns with the same values I have including respect, integrity, equality, and positivity. A company with a happy and uplifting work environment is also something ideal. I am open to new challenges and really any aspect of design whether it’s print or web. As an individual, I am constantly working on myself. I look to see where I can improve so that I can reach my greatest potential. I am very hard working and I always put maximum effort into everything I do, so that I can achieve maximum results.
After I graduate from college, I am going to take a semester off. I just personally need a mental break from school. During that break, I will be working as a part-time designer whether it’s with a company or freelancing. At the same time, I plan on traveling and working on a side business with my mom. But in January of 2021, I plan to pursue university and get a bachelor’s in business (either in marketing or entrepreneurship).
