Senior Graphic Designer
Hometown: Northboro, MA
Years at Conventures: Almost 2!
When did you start working here? And B.C. (Before Conventures) — work, school?
I started working at Conventures in February of 2022. Before coming here, I worked at Worcester Polytechnic Institute for 3 years in their Marketing Communications department, mostly working with the social media and digital marketing teams with the goal of increasing student recruitment.
What piece of advice would you give someone just starting out in design? Anything you wish you’d known?
Just keep creating things—skill comes with practice!
Most important skill you’ve learned working at Conventures?
Embrace new experiences! I never thought I’d be helping out at events, but it has been a great way to switch up the pace and be more involved in all of our projects in a totally different way.
How do you handle tight design deadlines?
Having good time management is a must, especially when we are working on multiple projects for multiple different clients at once. I try to prioritize the tighter deadlines over projects that might have a little more time.
What design are you most proud of?
A project from the past year that I had a lot of fun working on was for the Boston 10K for Women. We wanted to increase the amount of signage on site this year and really bring in more of the event branding. I worked on a collage-style banner that included a mix of graphics and photography using a range of photos from the 47 years the race has been held. The result was a fun visual timeline showing all of the event’s amazing history.
Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given or a quote you live by?
The 5×5 rule: if something won’t matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes worrying about it now.
Friends are visiting Boston for the first time. Where do you take them?
I’m not super into sports, but definitely a Red Sox game. You can’t beat a day at Fenway!
When you aren’t working, where could we find you?
I’m a total home-body, so probably at my apartment, watching reality TV. 🙂
What’s your favorite place you’ve ever visited?
Wyoming—underrated, one of the most beautiful states and there is so much to do and explore.
And finally, give us one of your hype up songs… please.
“Feel Like I Do” by Vin Diesel (yes, he has a song, and it is amazing).
