An Interview with Recent DCA graduate Renee Roos

Renee Roos

Congratulations to Renee on her recent graduation! Hear about her experience and see some of her projects below:

Tell us how you got interested in design and what brought you to the DCA program.

I was interested in taking the DCA program at UCLA Extension because I wanted to take a more creative route in my career path after completing my undergraduate degree in business and marketing. I thought that learning more about graphic design would compliment my degree while allowing me to do more of what I actually enjoy. 

What were your favorite courses and why?

Design III: Branding and Typography were definitely my favorite courses. I really enjoyed Design III: Branding because it allowed me to see the bigger picture for how a brand’s aesthetic must align with the brand’s identity and goals for it to appropriately communicate who they are and what they offer to their consumer. I also really enjoyed Typography because I didn’t know anything about it prior to taking the course and it made me fall in love with type. I find myself constantly searching for new typefaces and font trends in the design space.

Where do you see yourself professionally in 5 years?

In 5 years, I see myself working for a very established graphic design agency that works with many CPG brands. I am currently looking for an agency role because I believe that I will learn the most as a designer in that environment. I am really excited to see how I evolve as a designer and where my career path goes from here. 

Congratulations Renee!
