Work Experience

Institute For Transportation Research And Education

Graphic Design Intern

I created diverse graphics such as flyers, posters, logos, and social media posts for transport safety campaigns in North Carolina, providing and receiving constant feedback from other fellow interns. To stay connected to the team and keep files organized I used Asana and Google Drive while working remotely during the 2020's COVID pandemic. I also had the opportunity to self-manage my time and the influx of new projects I worked on.
