About me • I am currently a graphic communications student at Millersville University, graduating in May 2013. During my junior and senior year I was the secretary of the Marauder Graphics Club. Our club was responsible for designing artwork for t-‐shirts using InDesign and then print them through the medium of screen printing. We made shirts not only for fellow student organizations but also for other groups in the community. As a member of the club I gained a lot of knowledge about the screen printing process, from pre-‐press to handing the customer the ﬁnished t-‐shirts.
Independent Study • During my senior year, I completed an independent study in which I had a real life client that I did design work for. My client was a ﬂoral designer starting up her own business, Expressions by Design. I created, printed, and trimmed business cards for her as well as designed and uploaded a website. I met with her several times during the process to get her approval on the designs and make any adjustments she requested. Along with the business cards and website, I designed and printed promotional notepads and pens for her to give out to clients during consultations. I used InDesign to generate the designs, Photoshop to edit images, and Dreamweaver to develop the website. The following slide will show all my designs.
