During my first year of school, I had several classes on Media Design & Branding, and the knowledge turned out to be very useful over the next years. I have become well practised in the use of InDesign and have used that skill to create varied promotional material for my Taekwon-do club. I have also created folders for the opening of a new thrift shop in Groningen. Media Design & Branding is not something I am currently considering pursuing professionally, however it is something I rather enjoy doing whenever needed in my personal life.
Working with these programs and on these types of products has naturally taught me more about the main principles of design. I have developed a better eye for colour use and lay-out for example, and it has enabled me to create more aesthetically pleasing products both in this type of work as in game design.
