Knight Internship Fellowship Recipient 2009

At Greensgrow Farms, I designed a new currency that the farm is now using for its members, completed posters for their Summer Sustainability Series and illustrated labels for the farm’s homegrown honey and maple syrup.

My internship experience helped me understand what it is like to work for a non-profit organization as their in-house illustrator and designer.  I also had the added benefit of working for something I feel passionate about! 

I was dealing with real-life deadlines, too, which gave me a good dose of reality concerning my time management.  Besides making new friends of a like mind, I believe the best part of the whole experience was that I now feel much more confident in myself and my work, and I have made connections for my future.
