Amy Malcolm

Lead Student Designer - UWM Marketing Services

Milwaukee, WI, USA
Amy Malcolm is a student designer with an eye for simple, elegant design. She strives to understand the people she is designing for and how to convey the right image. She understands that though the client might think they know what an audience is looking for that it is important to show them how to correctly do so. Amy is inspired to use her talents to help people realize that good design can change how individuals see things. From a young age, Amy has been attracted to the artistic world through drawing with her mother. She enrolled into UW-Milwaukee’s undergraduate design program to further pursue this path towards a bachelor degree. Through trial and error, Amy has learned how to use design elements such as research, brainstorming, and self-restraint. She feels that each design she makes propels her further into the professional design world.

InVisionship Intern
I was a part of a new competition based internship at DCI Artform that gave 9 interns the ability to learn about retail science and experience the company firsthand. Split into 3 teams (Cosmetics, Transportation, Consumer Electronics) including Marketing and Design interns, we chose a problem to be solved for a client of our choice that would be presented at the end of 10 weeks to a panel of judges where a winner would be chosen. We worked with professionals at the company of all areas of expertise to come up with solutions. My team, the Cosmetics team, chose Walgreens as our client and created three solutions to improve their stores and came up with the winning solution.
