I am currently a senior at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania working towards a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design. I will be graduating this May with a concentration in Graphic Design and a special interest in illustration. My passions include problem–solving, graphic experimentation, and branding.
Spending two summers working as a creative intern at the Kutztown Community Partnership, I was able to gain experience in various aspects of the design industry. I was responsible for meeting with clients, drafting ideas, communicating with the printer. I was trusted by the members of the organization to carry out projects, which was a challenge I was excited to take on. I learned a lot about time management, professionalism, and client communication. These skills have led me to become a stronger designer.
My four years living and going to school in Kutztown has taught me that being a good designer isn’t enough. Being able to think outside the box, work well with others, and keep your head above water are all necessary skills to succeed in the design industry. My time as an undergrad has helped me master these skills.
