1.  Now we practice how to find a job online:

This first job caught my eye for some reasons.

Entry level job http://jobs.trovit.co.uk/index.php/cod.frame/url.http%253A%252F%252Fwww.creativejobscentral.co.uk%252Fgraphic-design-jobs%252Flist%252Fnottingham%252Fjunior-graphic-designer-948515.html/id_ad.2Rz1bX1Hd1i/type./what.entry%20level%20graphic%20designer/pos.2/org.1/pop.1/publisher_id./referer_id.1/t.1

I think this is a good job to begin with because it pushes the knowledge and skill limits of what I have been preparing.
Soon I will get my degree in Graphic Design, I can work in CS4 and Microsoft Office, and I’m well organized, very through, social, expressive, can do team works and the ability to deliver high-quality work to deadlines.
Been an art director comes with a great responsibility to make desitions and manage a team of graphic designers, and I hope in the future to accomplish the requirements for this job or a similar one.
2.  A person that i look up to in the graphic design area

One of the american icons in design is Paul Rand who was born in Peretz Rosenbaum, August 15, 1914. He was a well-known American graphic designer, best known for his corporate logo designs. Rand's education included the Pratt Institute the Parsons School of Design and the Art Students League. He designed many posters and corporate identities including the logos for IBM and ABC. Rand died of cancer in 1996.
