Samantha Maxwell Letter to the Judges

  1. 1. 1550 Owens Store RoadCanton, GA 30115April 19, 2012Judges, Senior ProjectCreekview High School1550 Owens Store RoadCanton, GA 30115Dear Judges:My name is Samantha Maxwell. I enjoy reading, writing, and music, but most of all Ilove art. Ever since I was very young I knew I wanted to pursue art as a career, but it hasonly been recently that I have fallen in love with graphic design through my experiencesas editor in chief of the yearbook. Soon, I plan to attend college as an art major with aconcentration in graphic design. Upon completion of my degree it is my goal to work foran advertising firm designing ad campaigns for emerging companies.For my product, I chose to create visual identities for companies of my own creation. Myresearch paper on the history of graphic design was a key step in developing my personalideologies about art and graphic design while learning about the historical context ofcertain methods of design. This project was, at times, daunting, especially when it feltlike I stared at a white screen for hours. However, overcoming these roadblocks havemade me more well versed in design technology and have helped me find my identity asan artist.I am extremely happy with the topic I chose because it directly relates to my chosen fieldof work. From this project, I have verified that graphic design is the right choice for mycareer. I can truly say that after the completion of this project, I have never been moreexcited to begin studying art and design at the college level. Though I know I willundergo more struggles as I work my way towards my ultimate goal, I can always lookback on the work I created as a part of this project and be proud of the results.At first, I dreaded the senior project. However, as soon as I started to work on myproduct, I realized it is truly one of the most valuable and enjoyable projects I have everworked on. Though it was a lot of work, I learned so much not only about graphic design,but also about myself and my work ethic. Thank you so much for your time and yourconsideration of my project.Sincerely,Samantha Maxwell
