Aside from colors and fonts, CSS manipulates all the aesthetics, it can help rearrange items on the page, and almost most importantly, the spaces between them!

Parsons The New School for Design
BS Urban Design
In the progressive Urban Design degree at Parsons, I not only expanded my foundational skill sets, but dove into a new realm of an urban style of thinking. I learned to perceive, understand, and propose design interventions in real world examples. Utilizing Parson’s extensive partnerships, I was able to partner and work with institutions such as NYC’s DOT, DCP, and collaborative works with non-profit organizations and local design firms.
As an added area of interest, I received permission to take core classes with Communication Design majors. The special relationship I held between these two departments allowed me to create a hybrid major of my own: Designing Communications within the Context of the Urban Environment. Learning these additional principles of design not only increases the aesthetics of presenting information, but allows me to communicate complex ideas and theories, or in some cases the most ingenious, the invisible.

Associate of the Arts
Wide ranged course of study specializing in Architectural Concepts, Artistic Skill Sets, and the Photography of Architecture in preparation for a transfer to the four year Bachelor of Science degree in Urban Design at Parson the New School for Design in New York City.

Throughout my time at the university, I learned the basics of architecture, digital modeling, physical drafting, principles of 2 dimensional design, color theory, advanced statistics, physical geography, and the psychological effects of how each of these affects an individual or group. All of these skill sets have allowed me to be extraordinarily well rounded, knowledgable, and quite a resourceful thinker.
