My name is Qian Gao. I recently graduated from Pratt Institute with a master degree in Communication Design. I also had my undergraduate degree in Marketing and Media Study at University of Buffalo. I would like to apply for the Graphic Designer position at 214.

I'm a visual storyteller with multiple skill sets in design, strategy and marketing. I have two years of graphic design experience at branding agency, non profit organizations and start-up, and have created print materials, digital products, branding projects and signage system.

During my time at Creative Department of Pratt Institute, I successfully applied the Pratt brand across different projects and mediums with great attention to details. I conceptualized and designed various print materials such as student planner, holiday postcards, posters and publication for different departments at Pratt. As a design intern at Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator, I was immersive in the environmental and exhibition design. I created and installed the new signage system and assisted in the exhibition design: Fashion=Activism at the unique space of BF+DA. I also confounded a start-up, CooStaY, an app for the online community of Chinese studying and living abroad. I was involved with marketing research, product strategy, product design, and marketing campaigns. I was able to perform my jobs with tight deadlines across an international team.

I have always been impressed by 214's approach to creative problem solving and the clarity in the messages embedded in each project. I would like to contribute to 214's creative process with my multi-disciplinary design background. I'm fluent in Adobe Creative Suit, Sketch, Keynote and MS office.Thank you for your attention and I look forward to talking to you soon.
