Up Close & Personal (AESTHETICS IA#3)

Essay: (Based on class reports)

The reports/artists that I will be covering are “AHB”, Ms. Nova Villa, and Mochie Cuyco.

First of all, they all have their similarities and differences. One of the similarities are that they are all professionals already and were once students just like us, and they all worked hard to be where they are right now, and the most important thing of all is that they all pursued their goals/dreams. As for their differences, not all of them have the same impact on society, since they do not have the same occupation, so basically they play different roles in the community.

AHB is an artist/painter who also partly owns a coffee shop, so her role in the community is to let people see the beauty of art, and to appreciate it and to provide quality service. On the other hand Ms. Nova Villa is an actress/comedian whose role is to entertain a large audience and make them happy. As for Mochie Cuyco; Cuyco’s job is to design brand logos for companies and such, according to Allyson Otis, a senior art director, “ In my mind, the role of a graphic designer in today’s society has remained the same over the years: to communicate an idea, brand, or story in a visual manner. I do, however, feel that a graphic designer’s job has become more difficult in that it must stand out amongst the clutter that consumers are continuously being exposed to.” (Reference: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/graphic-designers-role-multicultural-technology-driven-allyson-otis)

All these artists have great qualities, which brings me to the question: “What qualities would I want to imitate as a professional in my career?”

The qualities that I wish to imitate are:

  • Passionate
  • Creative
  • Humble (being open to criticism)
  • Resilient
  • Hardworking
  • Open-minded
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
