What drew you to TGW?

What are you looking forward to after graduation?
For the opportunity to integrate myself more in the city of Rochester.
Danielle Dirks, Design Intern
What area of interest do you gravitate towards within your major?
My favorite aspect of design would have to be branding and logo design. Building a company’s personality from the ground up is such an adventure. Mood boards, color palettes, typography: there’s nothing else I’d rather have keeping me up at night.
Whenever I’m given an assignment in class, I always try and create something that has real-world use to it: an infographic for Planned Parenthood that educates people on the many services they provide or a rebranding for the Donor Sibling Registry. Everything I create has a purpose. So when I discovered that TGW shared that same ethos, well, you could say I was smitten
Which class might you not make out alive this semester?
History of Photography. The course material is incredibly interesting, but the classroom itself is like a walk-in freezer.
In what ways have you surprised yourself through the college experience?
If you had told me back in high school that in three short years, I would be a straight-A student with my own apartment, an internship, and a work of art in a traveling, Italian exhibition, I would have said you were off your rocker. I’m constantly surprised by the things I create and the obstacles I have overcome. I guess I never realized how resilient I was.
What excites you the most about post-grad life?
Getting paid to do what I love. Nothing beats that.
