My name is Irene Hwang who a graduate of the communication design program at Parsons the New School for Design. I am currently working as a collaborative graphic designer with a marketing and design agency background. Having recently graduated from my studies and experienced as an intern and freelance graphic designer at design and marketing agencies, I have acquired strong theoretical and practical abilities as a graphic designer and worked with high profile clients such as Tom Ford Beauty, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale’s, Dr. Jart, Adam Selman, etc.
While I went to the school, I had not only created works for my portfolio, but also had experiences at several design and marketing agencies as an intern and freelancer to build my skills and career. You should know that “making a good portfolio at school is not everything.” You should try to make a balance between creating the school work and getting real field experiences.
As a recent graduate, I can tell you a lot more about the school, career, and life in New York. New Year is a tough city. I would love to talk to you and tell you what I had experienced at the school (fun things, good things, bad things..EVERYTHING) and how I have lived in the city so far.
I look forward to talking to you!
