For those wondering what this post is about, the title says it all. I came across Brian Ling's Blog (http://www.designsojourn.com) a few weeks back He's offered 5 lucky designers to be mentored by him. I know that I mostly work on automotive designs but Ive been thinking about branching out for a while now.
Here is what what I responded to his post with:
I am in Dallas Texas United States and I am a 1st year Graphic designer. I have always been interested in design in general. I am trying to improve my portfolio to get into Art Center. I am interested in just about every aspect of design. Currently I work on minor graphic designs for a hardware and plumbing distributor. I am also an assistant in marketing. The company I work for is geared towards architecture and interior design. Looking at all the amazing products designed by Phillipe Starck for Hansgrohe and Duravit was what really pushed me into industrial design. I want to design everything right now and I want you to help achieve that or at least narrow it down a little. I just stumbled onto your blog a few weeks ago and I enjoy your posts. http://daneychhang.blogspot.com/ http://dannychhang.deviantart.com http://twitter.com/deysc Ive just recently started a Linkin account so its not fully set up yet. I'd like to think that I am internet savvy. I have been on deviantart a little more than 5 years. I am looking forward to getting a response from you!
So that was my response. I really do hope I could get in though.
My next post will be some sketches Ive working on for a competition for IDsketching.com
