I plan on continuing my education in graphic design before searching for a full-time job. I told myself before coming to John Abbott college that I want to learn as much as possible. Not only to increase my knowledge but create more opportunities for myself in the future as a vector artist.
I consider myself to be a very straightforward person, I’m optimistic and open to new ideas like my art style. I’m very caring and patient with others, and when it comes to my work, I like to take my time because I’m passionate and have high expectations of myself. I like to set goals because it helps me stay organized and motivated in all aspects of my life.
Hi there, I am Brittany Horvath! I am currently a student in the Graphic and Web Design program at John Abbott College.
Ever since I was very young, I have had a passion for the arts and creative expression. Through the Graphic and Web Design program, I have learned how much I enjoy being digitally artistic and creative. I have discovered a passion for photography and photo retouching; my favorite things to photograph are cute animals and beautiful things found in nature. As for design, I enjoy creating business cards, posters, and social media content. The go-to applications that I enjoy using the most for design are Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. In my spare time, I enjoy taking photos (mostly of my cat), playing video games, and listening to/playing music. I love to sing all sorts of songs, and I also taught myself how to play the piano!
Being organized, empathetic, patient, and respectful are things I highly value in day to day life, and in which I apply these values to my work ethic. I am a firm believer in using patience, positivity, and enthusiasm through all situations and problems. My personal skills are problem-solving, both socially and technically, organization and time management, adaptability and motivation to learn as I am tech-savvy and love learning and using new tools and programs.
For my upcoming stage, I have a few set goals I wish to accomplish. My main goal is to gain valuable experience working in an office environment. I aim to improve my knowledge and skills in design in a more professional environment and learn all the ins and outs of the industry.
A company best-fit for me would be one who values teamwork, good communication, diversity, and honesty, while still leaving room for fun. While I believe I would enjoy working with any company that matches these values, I am very interested in working for companies in the industries of fashion and beauty, video games, or anything related to animals. I would be bringing my technical and design skills, my enthusiasm, and a positive attitude to my stage, with the goals to contribute new ideas and overall positivity to the team. After graduation, I aim to work full time as I have no current plans to go to University yet.
