University of Minnesota Extension 2009–2012

In addition to teaching and my own research and creative production, I worked as student designer at the University of Minnesota Extension while in graduate school from 2009–2012. While there, I worked on both print and web projects, typically promotional materials and informational documents. These are a few of my favorite print projects from Extension.
