My Experience as being a Graphic Designer.
Hi Guys! As most of you may know that I've recently (September 19th, 2018) graduated from my college campus with my Bachelor's in Bachelor's of Fine Arts Graphic Design. However I'm stil looking for a job in my field. There are always going to be struggles with my career. If you don't know, Graphic Design is the most Competive job that is out there, thou any job will be competive to get, but being a Graphic Designer is the most difficult when you have many other designers competiting for the position and sometimes you may get picked or someone else will. I mean if they got pick they obviously deserved it. While in college I've made a lot of friends that are in Graphics Design. Honestly I loved making friends that were in my field of study however they were also my competition. Some I won't even call my competition because there work was questionable. However there was atleast 2-3 girls that are my competition and still are to this day. One of them she is my number 1 competition but I really love her style, however we would talk a lot about what we like and our art style and give each other feedback which to me is the reason why she's ranked number 1 on my list. You'll get Harsh critiques I can't tell you how many times I've gotten critiques or seen others get mad over critiques. When someone critiques your work, critiques are there to help you improve your art work, I've seen so many students totally avoid them because they take it to personally or they don't think that they need them. You'll get better at handling as you go on, because I've gotten praised on it before, at my first internship, it was the most harsh critique I've had however he was more surpirse at how composed I was to understanding it, and I explained that the school I go to help prepare for these moemtns because they're going to happen. Interviewing Skills You'll get a lot of interviews . If you aren't that good thats ok, you work on those skills through practice, also your artwork will speak for itself as well when they see your portfolio work. My college had help practiced with these skills as well, when asked "what skills have you acquired working at your current job" I had working at my school, my first response was "I didn't have any".....don't say that...a year and a half later, I actually got better and had said "I have good customer service skills, planning out our schedule, answering tech support questions" etc... It jsut takes practice and time, and don't be afraid to ask for help. Finding a Job Finding a job isn't that difficult believe it or not. However My location isn't a good plave to find my position. I live in Michigan, and if you know Michigan....its known for the automobile and professional buisness. Honestly Michgian isn't really known for a creative state. I suggest being open to traveling to a different state that you have a higher chance at getting a job. Computer / Software Computer: My advice is to not ask someone what computer they should get. either way of a PC or a MAC they're both good for design work. It personally comes down to your personal preference of what you like. For me I like both PC and MAC I like MAC's becuae they're more user friendly with Graphic Design than a PC but I can work on both platforms. Software: The Software that Graphics Designers use are Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. You can pay monthly or yearly for the programs however if you have the money to buy the programs then I would do that it would save you lots of time and money when you have the full software.

Pixar changed multiple scenes in 'Inside Out' to cater to International Audiences
What you see depends on the country you live in. If you walk into a movie theater somewhere else in the world, Pixar's 'Inside Out' may look a little different from the American version you saw back at home. From the food to the sports to the cultural mannerisms, some things are slightly different. Pixar created 28 graphics for 45 uniquely different shots to be inserted for local audiences. So far Pixar has made over $553 million to date spanning multiple countries across the world. Director Pete Docter said they wanted the film to remain complex and emotional while making sense with the foreign audience's culture. Sometimes Pixar films aren't strictly perfect domestically so they make some tweaks to create the best product. This isn't the first company to change it's movie for a foreign audience. Marvel with "Iron Man 3" added scenes for Chinese audiences to incorporate Gu Li Duo, a popular Chinese milk drink, and a scene where Iron Man is saved by a famous Chinese character. In Adam Sandler's "Pixels", a scene was taken out so that Chinese audiences would not see the Great Wall of China destroyed. As you can see, your country has a huge influence. Doctor said for 'Inside Out', “We learned that some of our content wouldn’t make sense in other countries. For example, in Japan, broccoli is not considered gross. Kids love it. So we asked them, ‘What’s gross to you?’ They said green bell peppers, so we remodeled and reanimated three separate scenes replacing our broccoli with green peppers.” In this scene, Riley's dad is having a hard time getting her to eat broccoli. She squirms and turns away in disgust as he continuously attempts to have her eat it. In the United States, it is a normal thing for a child to dislike broccoli. But in Japan, broccoli is substituted by bell peppers since Japanese children think those are gross instead. That slight cultural difference changed an entire scene in the film to be more relatable and to evoke EMOTION. Though Hockey is traditionally a Canadian pastime, Hockey is still largely popular in the northern parts of the United States such as US state, Minnesota. Hockey is still just as American for many people however most of the world isn't exposed to hockey frequently which is why Pixar changed it to soccer. Soccer is the world's most popular sport. Docter also mentioned,“We offered a version with soccer instead of hockey since soccer is huge in so many parts of the world. But some countries that are into soccer actually decided to stick with hockey since the characters in the movie are from Minnesota and it makes sense that they’d be hockey fans.” Did you know that even how we read words is different in various parts of the world? Well Pixar took note of that being noted by Docter, "Bing Bong reads a sign in the film to Joy and Sadness. He points at the letters, D-A-N-G-E-R, saying ‘it’s a shortcut.’ Not only did we translate the sign, but we even went so far as to reanimate Bing Bong so that he points to the letters from right to left, instead of left to right to accommodate certain languages.” Do you think it's necessary to change a movie for a foreign audience?
