What Inspired Us To Join the Industry
This week, we asked our team who or what inspired them to be a part of the creative industry. When we got the group together to talk about our inspirations we noticed that pretty much all of us had creative tendencies that started at an early age. However, how we found our ways to the place where we are today took some turns and encouragement from outside mentors.
I’ve always been inspired by the women in my life. They have been the drivers of my creativity and passion, finding the beauty in everything. My mom and aunts are always crafting – crocheting, scrapbooking, quilting, singing, painting, you name it, they’ve done it. My sisters have an eclectic taste in music and style and create beautiful illustrations and paintings. A few of my closest girlfriends are amazing writers. They’ve continued to create all of their life which has inspired me to go into the creative field and work my passion.
As a Sophomore in college, I had already changed my major several times and I had no idea what my future would look like until I took Kelly Berg’s Communication Class, Media and Society. She opened my eyes to the world of marketing and communication and from that moment forward I never looked back. I am grateful to Kelly for helping me find my passion. The best part is she inspired me as my processor all those years ago and now I have the pleasure of calling her a friend. While Kelly influenced me to find passion in marketing, my dad inspires me to be who I am. I know that might sound cliche, but it’s true. I have never met someone with more resilience, determination, and passion for success. Knowing where my father came from and where he is today has inspired me to work hard, love what I do, and stay positive even through tough times. My dad is my inspiration to follow my dreams and enjoy the journey.
I pursued graphic design because of my unwavering passion for visual storytelling and creativity. The power of design to communicate ideas, evoke emotions, and inspire change fascinates me. Through graphic design, I can seamlessly blend my artistic talents with innovative technology, pushing boundaries to create captivating and impactful visual experiences. It grants me the opportunity to not only channel my imagination but also to solve problems and address diverse challenges through artistic expression. Embracing the ever-evolving world of design would enable me to leave a lasting mark on the world, shaping the way people perceive and interact with information and art.
