Two years later, their housewares and custom design business has taken off. And they regularly hire CCA students as interns, teaching them how to turn a love of craft into a sustainable business. IT’S ALL IN THE FAMILY Evan Litvak (Interaction Design 2014) started out as a Ceramics major, then took one Interaction Design course and got hooked. By his junior year, he was scouted by Facebook for an exciting internship opportunity. During the 12-week internship, he worked on Facebook Home, a product that customizes the lock screen on Android phones to stream content from the user’s Facebook friends. By the end of the internship, Litvak had secured a job offer upon graduation. FROM INTERNSHIP TO JOB OPPORTUNITY TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT CCA CALIFORNIA COLLEGE OF THE ARTS 2014/2015
