GMD Alumni Return to Share Career Advice

On March 27, 2014 Sage alumni Matt Stipano, a graphic designer at J. Crew in NYC and Michael Rivette of Upside Collective in Schenectady joined Christina Sharp, also of Upside, to speak to Graphic + Media Design seniors in Professor Jean Dahlgren’s Portfolio Preparation class. Matt showed some of his recent design work for J. Crew and spoke about being a designer in NYC . Michael and Christina gave a presentation chocked full of tips and inspirations, including their latest design initiative PixelScouts. After sharing how they got started in their design careers post-college they looked at the seniors’ portfolios to give them some guidance. It was great to have them back on campus, and we’re very proud of their accomplishments!
