Marit Jansen - graphic design student
Notebooks, journals, the corners of high school textbooks – they were always filled with small illustrations throughout elementary and high school. I’ve always known that I wanted to study something with art and creating, so I could get a job in the creative sector. Graphic design was appealing to me, because I wanted to learn how to digitalise the art I made in my sketchbooks.
Being able to digitalise my art, and to create designs using all sorts of programs, opened an entire new world for me. I’m always learning new skills and approving them. Aside from creating good designs, having fun is still an important part of my work to me. On study breaks, I like to draw quick 1-5 minute illustrations.
I’m currently in my third year at Grafisch Lyceum Utrecht.
Skills - programs and languages
Almost all of the programs I work with are Adobe programs. The most used ones are Adobe Indesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Xd and ProCreate. Aside from those, I can also work with Adobe Animate and I can design websites using WordPress.
I speak Dutch and English.
I’m an optimistic person and like to think in solutions instead of problems. I am quick to think “outside the box”.
