This summer at NPR
I am excited to announce that on Monday, June 9, I will be starting a summer internship at NPR! I will be working as a UX/Visual Design Intern on their Digital Media team.
In January, I stumbled across this article in Fast Company about NPR's new Creative Director, Liz Danzico. I knew then that I wanted to work with her. Liz is a designer, writer, and educator. She is a founding chairperson of SVA's MFA in Interaction Design Program. And she's pretty legendary in the field.
I am thrilled that the work in securing the position paid off, and I can't wait to join this smart and talented team. NPR's Design Group concepts, designs, and develops a framework to transform NPR's digital services. Their goal is to create "delightful, usable, consistent, and sometimes surprising experiences across products and services." They are truly pushing the standards of design and storytelling on the web, and I am happy to be a part of it.
It's going to be an amazing summer!
