"I went to a vocational high school," she said, "and studied in the graphic communications program. It was a process, and you learned it all from printing presses to design and everything in between. I pulled toward the arts and knew then that I wanted to major in graphic design." A graphic design major at BSU, Erin applied for the graphic design internship in IT. And not surprisingly given her portfolio, she was hired. Her task – to design IT Outcomes 2017. John Welch, web developer, was pleased to be her supervisor. Temperamentally, Erin is well suited to her task. "When working with clients," she said, "I begin by asking them to describe what they're thinking. Do they have a color scheme in mind or images they prefer to use or not use? Do they have examples of what they like? "It's a give and take, and it boils down to figuring out exactly what they need so I can give the best possible outcome for the design they would like." Erin has lots of experience in giving clients what they want. In addition to working on the BSU Life team as a graphic designer, she operates her own freelance graphic design business. She also published work in BSU's student journal, e Bridge: Volume 13 and is proud to have had the opportunity to design IT Outcomes 2017. OPPORTUNITIES. COLLABORATIONS.
