This summer our interns have done an incredible job honing their design skills and supporting our creative team in the visual design process for various client projects.
It's always exciting to welcome new talent to our verynice family! Meet our newest design intern in the brief interview below:
Hey there! Tell us a bit about yourself.
F: My name is Fran, I'm a student going into my fifth and last year at Cal State Long Beach pursuing a BFA in Graphic Design. I grew up in Chile and moved to the U.S 8 years ago so my home is split between California and Santiago, Chile.
What have you learned as a verynice design intern?
F: I've loved working and learning from a team of talented young people who come from different backgrounds. It's been fun to learn not just about the important role that design plays within non-profit organizations but also learn how we as designers can help have a positive impact in the community.
What is your favorite social cause?
F: One of my favorite social causes is an organization called People to People. Their mission is to create connections between people from different cultures and all around the world with the goal of exploring global issues, enhancing international understanding, and building friendships through educational, cultural and humanitarian activities. The end goal of this cause is to create a cross-cultural network of engaged and knowledgable everyday citizens in order to sustain a peaceful world.
What passions and interests do you have outside of work?
F: I love anything that has to do with music, such as learning about new artists, reading about music history, digging for new records to add to my collection, and going to live shows. I love the outdoors and being outside in general. I love the visual arts and like to collect art and design books. I also love traveling, learning about new cultures, and love going to new places whenever life allows.
Who is your biggest role model in life?
F: My biggest role models are probably my parents because they have both worked their hardest throughout their lives to get to where they are today and have always emphasized the importance of growth through persistency, kindness, focus and hard work (while also making time for a little fun).
