AIGA Orlando Mentorship "Spot Showcase"

This year I had the pleasure of participating in the yearly "Spot Showcase" that our local chapter of AIGA puts on. The show is the end product of a half year co-op between a student/newly graduated Mentee and a Design Professional Mentor.

My Mentor was the amazing Melissa Fox-Austin and together we created a self promotional box design.

My brand concept centered around the Atomic Age in design and we decided to develop a faux Laundry Box with Tongue and Cheek writing to convey that concept and link back to my personal resume.

I learned a lot from the process and am ecstatic for those Mentees that won for different events of the Showcase. Our speaker, the incredible Tad Carpenter gave a humorous and insightful talk into what he does and what we, as the future of design, should aim for.


Yesterday the 12th of December I officially graduated from the University of Central Florida with a BFA in Emerging Media- Graphic Design. In addition to graduating in the honors college I also received Cum Laude recognition.

New and Exciting things are on the horizon for me, in addition to job prospects I also was accepted into the AIGA Mentorship program.

This week I am partaking in a graduation vacation and will not be able to respond to messages until next week the 22nd of December.
