Kate Sidener

Design Intern

  • Lexington, S.C.
  • Graphic Communications

I decided to major in graphic communications because I enjoy both problem solving and creativity. I wanted to find something that would make me happy and content now and in the future. I want to be innovated and energized every day I walk into the office door of my future career. I chose this internship to familiarize myself with Campus Banner + Design before this coming fall, where I will be interning as a graphic designer. I was more than ecstatic to hear they had a photography position open for this summer because I have a passion to capture moments in creative ways. I believe it to be a great opportunity to improve my skills and express my passion all in one.

I love creating artwork, whether it’s photography, painting, drawing, etc. I am also an outdoorsy person. I love anything with action. I am often known as a busy bee and like to keep going and doing things. I love to run and play soccer and also being surrounded by my friends and family. I am very much a people person. I also have two other jobs: at a frozen yogurt shop and as a teaching assistant for a graphic communications course.

I have three goals while working at Campus Banner + Design:

  1. To have my ideas and designs pushed and pulled to opposite corners, so I can see the full range of what I am capable of creating.
  2. To improve my photography abilities, ultimately creating a style of my own.
  3. To dip my feet in the graphic communications and artistic work fields and solidify my dreams and goals for the future.
