Personal Statement

The continuous discovery of the various visual possibilities for presenting a subject through the aid of Multimedia Computing armed me with an ongoing passionate devotion and determination to the subject from the beginning of my academic career.

         

My academic journey in Intercollege for my B.A. degree aided me to explore the numerous ways in which a visual representation of an idea can be produced to communicate a straightforward meaning with the purpose to offer to the public the significant proper acknowledgment of a subject.

        

            Presenting a general idea, or a specific notion trying to intrigue the public either through the creation of an image, an internet site, or a video inspired me into searching the various angles a subject can be looked at and to constantly re-examine the best way it can be presented to contact the viewer whilst provoking the appropriate interest.

         

Even before starting my studies, and from a very young age, I always had an interest for computers, graphics, arts and creative activities. After graduating from lyceum, I joined the army in the area of Special Forces (Military Police) for two years. Deciding to develop my creative instincts in the visual arts I enter a course in Multimedia Computing at Intercollege (University of Nicosia) . Through these years, the options of creative design through the use of Photoshop, Illustrator, Quark, Dreamweaver, Flash, Director, 3D StudioMax, Wavelab were a momentous insight into the possibilities of my creativity marking, the bases of my knowledge. I have learned to work efficiently within a time restricted schedule either individually or in a team.

 

During my college years, I tried my best to experience the possibilities of Multimedia Computing whilst developing skills and creative thinking. In order improve my self in the area of design, I participated in many competitions. I gained the 4th place in a national competition for an advertising campaign of Blu Water (Photos Photiades Distributors Ltd). I also achieved 4th position in a national organization, SEK (Cyprus Workers Confederation) in creating an advertising poster for a campaign against stress. In addition I participated in a national competition for Pegeuot Automobiles for creating a design to be placed on the exterior of the car in which I was nominated. Moreover I created a design for a competition for Gloria Jeans café which would be placed on the mugs of the cafeteria. Lastly, I participate in a European competition taking place in Ithaca, Greece which was involved with the subject of dreams. 

          

My efforts have been acknowledged by my tutors who constantly encouraged me in my participations in competitions. My attention has been awarded by recognition of my efforts in the final year exhibition of the College in 3D design which included my project in an animated commercial for Absolut Vodka. Also my tutor encouraged me to place an Audio Advertisement I made for hair gels in a final exhibition of the academic year. In addition, through my academic year, I worked in an advertisement company called EMS which took over the promotion of London Clothing where I was assigned to create a logo representing a company and also in a local radio broadcasting corporation as a commentator and a DJ.

          The discovery of new ideas and ways of approach increased my interest in the field of advertising more and more each day as I was improving my working techniques and managing the programs better and faster each time. My goal is to continue to improve my vision into presenting ideas for advertising on a higher academic level. I am constantly fascinated and impressed by the advertisement field as it delivers clever and straightforward ideas for promoting an industry and I have a strong determination for discovering original ideas.

          I believe the more extended creative workplace of the U.K. will aid me to observe with a more open vision the possibilities of advertising and multimedia design and thus push my way of thinking further more. I also intend to work in the U.K. after my studies as a further working experience in the field.
