What drew you to apply to Design Works?

“I started working here my freshman year as the social media marketing assistant for the Union. It seemed like a great opportunity, and I’m so grateful I got the position. I ended up applying to be a graphic designer at the end of my junior year because I wanted to get more experience in my field before I graduated. Working here as a designer has been a great way to wrap up my time here at UNT.”

What is your favorite thing about your job?

“I love having the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects and being able to explore different techniques and styles. Working here has really helped me develop my design skills.”
