It all started when I joined the Design Career Fair (DCF) my 2nd year...
As I was just kicking off in my design career, I already knew I wanted to make a difference, solve problems, and create beautiful solutions in return. And that journey began when I chose to join DCF.
It was a very new group that started back in 2014, when our founder, Tiffany Trieu questioned, "Why don't our designers have career fairs?" The ones offered by UC Davis were great, but to find a specific company to hire designer(s) was rare. Fast forward, the DCF team was born! Ambitious design students gathered each week with their specific team to plan a full-fledged career fair.
And I was one of them. From the range of sub-teams, I decided to choose graphics and exhibition.
In the graphics team, I was a part of a collaborative effort in forming the branding of DCF. We had only 10 weeks to make a logo, establish a branding for our team, the career fair, and meanwhile have deliverables all before Spring quarter arrived. The time when the career fair would take place. When we were creating the logo we kept in mind that this would be use for many career fairs way beyond the 2nd annual DCF.
Additionally with creating the logo, I helped with the marketing posters and the Thank-You cards we were giving out to the recruiters.
Not only did I help with graphics, but also exhibits. My friend Isabel and I created the physical brackets that were used in the photoshoots.
We have left a legacy of not only amazing branding, but a life-long impact on the UC Davis design community!
