Because our creative team at Joybird is so small and the company is so new, I’ve been able to do many different projects to strengthen our brand. I’ve done everything from designing landing pages, to putting together email blasts and sale assets, to creating print ads and direct mailer pieces.

Art Department Intern at Vans
06/2013 - 08/2013
I was in charge of developing Vans' first ever archive. I gathered assets such as, ads, photos, newspaper clippings, shoes, and historical documents and designed a website to house them. Each of these pieces had to be digitally converted, so I had to either scan pieces in and retouch them in Photoshop or photograph them live. At the end of my internship, I presented the archive to the president of Vans, along with many others.
