University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Industrial Design Class of 2017 Becoming a well rounded designer requires the integration of classroom education, experience and an appreciation for using images and objects to communicate. I have spent the last three months traveling on my own all over the United States, developing as designer and a person. I can’t wait to share my skills and perceptions with my next employer. roz.hillenbrand@gmail.com +1 (412) 999 2562
