This archive contains my first graphic designs. Shout-out to college-aged me and the friends who supported my growth as a deisgner along the way. I started designing my first year of college during my First Year Seminar, "Art in the Digital Age." There, I learned to use Photoshop, Illustrator, and Dreamweaver from Professor Wenhua Shi. I also started free-lance designing posters (literally for free) to advertise Colgate events.
My sophomore year, I joined Colgate's Shaw Wellness Insitute intern team as a graphic designer where I worked for 3 years. I miss my former office leaders: Thad, Jane, Shannon, Katy, and Shelby; my fellow interns; and the Social Norming Committee. Friday afternoons eating homemade lunches and dessert with the Social Normers to design alcohol/drug education campaigns was one of the best parts of my job!
The summer before junior year, I started free-lancing with the start-up, SoPact. The most stereotypical Bay Area experience, we worked in a house in Fremont. We shared ideas over delicious Indian food lunches cooked by the CEO's mom and celebrated afternoon victories with Chai cha (tea).
The summer after college, I interned at WitMedia, a boutique media company in New York City. I loved working in the city's Flower District, even doing intern duties like getting Sweetgreen salad lunch runs proved fun in Manhattan.
