I spent all day Monday speaking with 8th graders from the Rockwood School district about a career in graphic and web design. My bit for the community! It was fun but quite exhausting . At the end of the day I was pretty hoarse from giving my presentation six times.
I covered the main responsibilities of my job, jobs likes and dislikes, education requirements, required skill set and steps the student could take now to prepare for this type of career.
However before we started I gave the kids a little test … much to their disgust before they realised what it entailed!
Am I color blind?
The discs above show the numbers 56, 45, 25, 6, 29 and 8 to those with perfect color vision.
Being able to see in perfect color is an essential requirement for a career in web or graphic design though it would be a fitting start to my talk. Two of the students I spoke to were indeed “color challenged”
