Rishi’s Pieces

Get it? Like Reese’s Pieces!

Rishi is one of the Union Marketing Assistants in Design Works. His humor and friendly personality are a warm welcome whenever he walks into the room. Rishi is a Pisces, in fact, today is his birthday! Let us introduce you to Rishi!

What drew you to apply to Design Works?

“I found the Union Marketing Assitant job on Handshake and wanted to apply because it was related to my major. Also, I thought it would be cool to spend all day in the Union.”

What is your favorite project you’ve worked on?

“National Album Day is my favorite project I have worked on. Sydney and I suggested the idea, everyone really liked it, and that felt great. The entire month of September was planning the photo shoot, it was really cool. The best thing about it is that its our most liked post on our Instagram.”

“‘SOUR’ is my personal favorite.”

Favorite Design Works memory?

“My favorite memory is when we made cardboard Steve (or Stove). It’s one of those really weird but funny things that happen, but no one outside of your work bubble understands why it’s funny.”

If you could add anything to the Design Works office, what would it be?

“A snack bar. I’m always snacking on the job, might as well make it convenient.”

What is your Favorite Movie?

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Literally one of the best sequels of all time. Honestly at this point, I don’t even know how many times I’ve watched it.”

Fun fact: “I actually own the Catching Fire picture disc on vinyl. I think I spent almost $120 on it because I bought it off of eBay.” *Pictured down below is what they look like.*

What artists are on your playlist?

  1. Paramore
  2. Taylor Swift
  3. Dua Lipa
  4. Ariana Grande
  5. Khalid

If you were hosting SNL, who would your musical guest be?

“Paramore. No questions asked.”

Favorite Fast Food

“Raising Canes. I eat there religiously. In 2021 I ate there 25 times! I think that’s over $200 that I have spent there. It might seem crazy, but the texas toast is worth it – especially if you get it buttered on both sides.”

What are your future plans?

“Eventually, I want to end up in the entertainment marketing industry. I’ve always loved movie posters and trailers, and I really want to contribute to that.”

We are so lucky to have Rishi on our team! Design Works wouldn’t be the same without him! We wish him a very Happy Birthday! You can find him on Instagram @rishiiichoudhary
