Thanks for your interest! I'm really excited to get to know you and possibly work together!
A little bit about myself: My name is Justin and I've been the Design Chair for the past year. I"m a second year intended MCB major, but that is subject to change. After being involved in Interact during high school, I immediately joined Rotaract in college to involve myself in a similar community that welcomed me during high school. Before becoming a Rotaract officer, I was also a previous Design Intern. It was a great way for me to sharpen up on my graphic design skills all under the guidance of the Design Chair at that time.
However, it is NOT a requirement to have a professional knowledge and experience with Photoshop and Illustrator. Before I interned, I had a limited understanding of graphic design, my background coming from high school as a hobby. As an intern, it will be my job and pleasure to help you! I'd rather have interns who are creative, responsible, passionate, and eager to learn rather than one who won't gain much out of the internship. I want this to be an enriching experience, not seen as another extracurricular chore.
Please don't be hesitant about applying if you have little to no graphic design skills! I look forward to reviewing your application regardless of skill level and possibly working with you in the future!
Best of luck!
