I was asked to speak about my experiences and work to the Professional Practices class for the graphic design students at Wichita State University and give any tips I had about the graphic design industry. Thank you, WSU, for inviting me to share my experience. As a previous student, I valued the knowledge that other speakers brought to class and believe that they helped me gain the skills that brought me to Cassandra Bryan Design.
My journey started in high school, where I traded in my football cleats for a mouse and keyboard. I joined the web team at Bishop Carroll, which gave me the opportunity to learn the skills of programs like Photoshop and Illustrator. These skills led me to my first few projects, like designing the Bishop Carroll logo. Projects like this gave me a boost of confidence going into my Freshman year at WSU.
