Prof. Rusty Nelson (Chair, and Vis Comm) recently put out a call for updates on what alumni of the Art Department's Visual Communications program have been up to. He has shared the following three updates!
am working in the marketing department at Innsbrook Resort and recently
completed a redesign and rebuild of their website at www.innsbrook-resort.com and I will be leading
a rebranding this fall.
graduation and completing one more summer with [Truman's] J[oseph] B[aldwin] A[cademy], I was able to find a
contract graphic design position in the Marketing department for Perceptive
Software (a division of Lexmark), based out of Shawnee, KS. After three months
in this temporary position, they offered me a full time job, which I happily
accepted and have been doing for 7 months now. In my position I work on
brochures for the various software technologies we offer and also create
graphics and collateral for the hundreds of trade shows our staff attends every
year. It's very exciting and I continue to learn something new everyday.
I've been working
for about six months as a graphic designer in the Publications and Alumni
Communication department at Mizzou. I design the weekly faculty newsletter
(we're launching a redesign in a couple of weeks!), a science magazine for
middle school students, and assorted student recruitment and event materials. I
plan and art direct photo shoots, meet with clients from various departments,
and press check most jobs at MU's Printing Services. I really like redesigning
things, whether they need a fresh look every time (like the School of Music
recruitment materials) or they've gotten stale over the years (like some event
invitations and programs).
If you are an alum and have news or updates to share, we'd love to hear from you! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
