ABOUT

Hi, I'm Emily Plitnick

I am currently a senior at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. I will be graduating in May 2019 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design with dual concentrations in Graphic Design and Interactive Design. Throughout my educational career I have advanced my design and technical skills as well as gained experience in the field.

I have design experience through my internship and freelance. I am currently an intern at Sposto Interactive and while here I am responsible for working through designs for flex ads, banner ads and logos. I follow client feedback to their satisfaction and prepare files to be sent out. Daily meetings take place to understand deadlines and company objectives. I have learned how to communicate and participate in a professional work setting.

Through my career so far I have learned to face challenges head on and to learn as much as I can of what is offered because knowledge is ever expanding and powerful. The world is a vast place filled with familiar sensations and obscure wonders. I am a curious person by nature, driven to discover what I do not know or understand. I like to invent new ideas to solve problems or show others the way. I believe I can create things equally as imaginative as the world is extraordinary, as I live to accept a challenge and always keep my mind wide open.
