There are many things that people do on a regular basis without realizing it. One such thing is filtering. Filtering is not just a function used in a photo app. It is a concept that can be applied to everyday activities. Some examples of filtering are how we filter out who we talk to, what media we are exposed to, and even how other people see us.
My goal with my work is to examine places where filtering occurs through both static and animated 2D pieces. I am looking at the limitations and lack of awareness that can come from the act of filtering.
Letter of Intent
Dear Wizards of the Coast team,
My name is Jasmine Angelo. I am contacting you to put myself up for consideration in either your game development or creative departments. Having studied elements of storytelling and narrative-driven imagery, I am interested and even excited to potentially get the opportunity to work with the people who develop content for games such as Dungeons and Dragons and Magic the Gathering.
With my graduation from the Digital Media and Animation baccalaureate program at Alfred State SUNY College of Technology, I have knowledge on working in a cooperative environment with free exchange of ideas and can therefore present concepts and ideas in an organized fashion. From previous positions in customer service, I have learned how to communicate in a respectful but serious manner.
I look forward to the chance to speak with you about my qualifications and about possibilities of working with you. Attached to this letter is my resume and a link to my digital portfolio. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Examples of Final Images:
- doesn’t convey an artistic sense or design
- grey font showing what the large font discusses blends into the background and is small enough to be easily overlooked
- doesn’t specific aspects of his designs or what he helped design for his clients
- can only learn the artist’s credentials by email or phone
- the preview of the folio happens too quickly to properly view/analyze the artist’s work
- the first indication of the artist’s style or work is on the WIP page
- the pictures on the WIP page could have more even spacing in their respective columns
- contact info is clickable and takes you to software your computer has to use the info.
Velvet Spectrum (Luke Choice) velvetspectrum.com/projects
- consistent navigation
- pretty consistent color design
- immediately shows examples of the artist’s work, which when clicked on expands and shows the image larger as well as other images in the collection
- logo (or at least the font directly below the logo) would benefit from being a little larger
a dandypunk http://www.adandypunk.com
- immediately visible branding and design
- minimal outward links to show some work or related content (only one)
- consistent navigation
- while an interesting design element, the wording for typical functions on an artist site such as the artist statement and their work/gallery is not immediately recognizable (for example, the description of the artist is called ‘ego’)
Femme Fatale www.femmefatale.paris/en
- juicy site in terms of visuals (even no interactions with the site have visuals), especially on the home page
- color scheme on the project page could be more appealing if limited to fewer colors or even remaining grey scale
- design is stylized and flows nicely
- gives good detail on the artists’ inspirations/influences

This piece is talking about how groundless and based on preconceived notions that discrimination is. In this case, I am talking specifically about racial discrimination.
To represent the issue, I chose to utilize the analogy of a vampire to represent minorities. The factors why this character is being discriminated against come from the establishment in older films (such as the Bela Lugosi version of Dracula) of vampires being a force of defilement or corruption. The supporting figures in this piece recognize this as a part of the vampire’s history and thus look at him with disgust and fear.
