When I sat down in 2014 to write down my goals for the year, one of them was to get a full time job in the fashion/beauty industry. In Chicago these opportunities are very limited, and you pretty much have no choice but to move to New York or Los Angeles to find them. I spent the majority of the year working as a freelance Art Director/Graphic Designer for a number of different brands, but I never felt completely comfortable. Like I was where I was meant to be.
That all changed this November when I was hired as a Graphic Designer for Paris Presents/Real Techniques. Now I get to spend my days creating beautiful design for the number one growing beauty company in the US! Oh and did I mention, the company is based in Chicago! I'm so proud of myself and I'm excited to see all the opportunities this new position brings. Time to set bigger goals for 2016.
