Meet a 'Communication Designer'
 
Here's an odyssey in 19 chapters (paragraphs, actually) of how an individual with a flair for writing, relating, and designing decided he (or she) was a "communication designer." This journey weaves together all the strands of communication in today's electronics-saturated environment, explaining, as well, the value of blogging as an identity builder.

David Seah undoubtedly has done many of us a service by passing along this generous post on his blog.

By recounting the thinking behind a journey through two graduate school programs -- in engineering and computer graphics design -- a generous, perceptive individual shares a personal search:

"I like ideas, and I like to see people empowered by information. I also happen to have a good eye and have taught myself something of personal motivation and desire. I understand the nuance of wording, and the power of storytelling. I like know how to create with a variety of media in service of telling the story, and I am delighted when I see sparks of understanding igniteexcitement in a person I'm interacting with.

"Once I understood that it was the search for message that drove my interest in skills, rather than the skills themselves dictating what I did for work, the correct choice of label made a lot of sense to me."

This is someone you'd like to meet over coffee!
