Graphic Design Grad Named One of “100 to Watch”
Recent Graphic Design grad Yana Carstens has two projects published in CMYK magazine’s “#53 Top New Creatives” issue. Her work can be found in the article, “100 New Creatives to Watch” and the pieces shown include business cards and Web design for technology provider RogueRed.
Carstens said about the publication, “It is pretty neat to see my work published in a respected graphic design publication. I remember when I started attending Kendall and looked at CMYK for the first time. I remember thinking, ‘Wow! I wish I was as talented as these designers.’ The work I saw in magazines and other industry sources definitely set a standard for me regarding the quality of work I wanted to produce as a designer. To see my work published in a respected publication like CMYK is definitely a sign that I am heading in the right direction and certainly gives me the extra nip of confidence I need once in a while when I'm in 'design slumber'.”
Carstens is currently working as a graphic designer at Elevate Studios in Chicago.
