INTRODUCTION I have always been a maker of things. As a young girl, I remember making homemade cards with plastic Tupperware stencils. I was driven to use my pencil to meticulously trace and adjust the gaps between letters until they were perfect. As an adult, my degree in business fulfilled my love of the creative process, but was too entrenched in numbers and data—it did not engage my passion for visual communication. I missed the subtle nuances of placement in a layout and juxtaposition of materials in a printed piece. Now that I’ve returned to design, my background in business has granted me insight into the practical details that make a design successful. I’ve come to appreciate the interaction between real-world constraints and creativity. The little girl in me never lost her love of making. She just took a detour to learn some other things along the way.

THANK YOU A huge thank you to all the teachers and my peers at San Diego City College for helping and encouraging me along the way. Sean and Bradford went above and beyond, meeting outside class, giving up weekends and emailing me back in the wee hours of the night. Candice edited all my copy. There was tough love and a bit of stress but I couldn’t have gotten through it without them.
