Interview with Sally Awaldi:
What is the main reason you chose Graphic Design as a career?
Since my childhood, my hobby has been drawing. I love art, and my favorite medium is oil painting. I used to paint many landscapes and portraits, Also I like to draw many cartoon characters. I developed this hobby and became an artist who displays my work in a group gallery. Also, my background is in programming computers, as I studied programming computers, so the computer is my thing. When I decided to collect these, my favorite in one career, I found graphic design as a career is a good choice. I also love to be creative and solve problems, which is a very interesting and challenging career. Tell me a little bit about your school.

My favorite program is Adobe Illustrator, where I can do my favorite hobby drawing, and Adobe Express, where I can do different designs anywhere, any time. What is the best thing you ever designed? Who was it for and why is it your favorite? I enjoyed all the projects I designed, and in my opinion, they are all my best; with every project I start, I learn something new, and I like when I succeed in reaching my project's goal. I worked on different project designs such as logos, magazines layout, cover books, posters, flyers, and packaging designs, Also, I like to design posts for social media for a marketing campaigns. I always try my best in each project design because it helps me to become better at what I am doing. Below is my online portfolio, which has some of my design work. Sally ALAWADI (myportfolio.com) What are some of the pros of becoming a Graphics Designer? Graphic design is a job you can work from anywhere if you are a freelance graphic designer. Also, you will always learn as you add new skills and learn more about new programs, technologies, and trends. It is a challenging career; the designer is a problem solver, which you can find in each new project, and you have to be creative and brainstorm to solve this problem that helps stretch your brain muscles. I also love for people to see my design work, so I feel that my design work will make a difference and help shape the communities.
