Packaging Designer, Astor Chocolate
BFA: Graphic Design • Class of 2013
"I think the art of design can be an abstract concept, and even difficult for young students to understand. Upon starting my education at RBSD, though, I was thrilled to find tremendous comfort in discovering a craft and creative pursuit that leads to a career path I am passionate about."
"The sense of community among the professors and students is both effortless and inspiring—it extends from the Union campus to the Ocean Campus (where I studied) and from a student’s first class to well beyond graduation. I left Kean with a solid portfolio of design skills and creative, conceptual knowledge and true confidence in entering the job market. I never hesitate to recommend RBSD to the fresh crop of young creatives. Choosing the School of Design at Kean was one of the smartest (and luckiest) decisions I’ve ever made."
