Ever since I was young, I’ve always had a passion for art and design. I was captivated by the design of video game logos and the cover art you would find on the physical copies. Something about the visuals on a cover giving you a hint about what you we’re about to play or listen to has always interested me.
In CEGEP at first, I didn’t quite know what I wanted to do. I knew I liked art, but I also really liked working with computers. After taking a Photoshop and basic HTML course as an elective I knew what I enjoyed doing, Graphic Design.
When I was younger, I never worried much about the future. Things worked out for me and I found that I never had a difficult time in deciding what I wanted to do or how I wanted to do it. It’s only in my last semester at John Abbott College where I really felt the pressure of making decisions for my future. It required me to sit down and actually make a plan.
My name is Eric Lachance and I have been learning graphic design for the last few years. I am looking for some experience although I intend to continue my education in the field of animation next year. During my studies, I have excelled and greatly enjoyed the design and technical parts of my field. I have done a lot of different work which challenged me but helped me learn a great variety of skills. In my program, I was taught to use numerous programs efficiently. The only thing I don’t enjoy as much is making websites despite being capable of doing so.
My name is Nich Guilbault, and I’m a dedicated designer and illustrator with an interest in classical animation. Having grown up on animated films like Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King, I’m passionate about visual storytelling and storyboarding.
I find the use of expressive movements, body language and composition to communicate complex ideas fascinating, and I carry this appreciation over into all of my design work. Likewise, I strive to ensure that all aspects of my print or web design pieces express a unified “story” or idea.
