I am admitted to George Mason School of Art‘s graduate program in graphic design. I feel like a high school kid getting his first college acceptance letter. In a decade of working in higher-ed institution, I am finally taking advantage of the tuition benefit for something that I truly want to learn and earn a degree. I am positive that the program will make me a better designer.

Many thanks to my bosses (past and present) for their wonderful letter of recommendation. Mad props to my sister-in-law’s husband for proofreading my expanded goal statements and my writing sample, in which I wrote about “White Space, Miles Davis and Responsive Web Design.” I am also sure that the portfolio that I put together in a couple of hours got in the the door. Visualgui not only landed me freelance projects, but also get me into graduate program. I am definitely looking forward toward the Fall semester this year.
