Congrats to Lina Beijerstam for completing the DCA program! She tells us more about her experience below:
Tell us how you got interested in design and what brought you to the DCA program.
My background is in marketing, and I’ve been working in marketing for most of my life. I moved here from Sweden and enrolled in the Digital Marketing certificate. But after getting in touch with people who were students in the DCA program, I knew I always wanted to be on the more creative side and switched careers. Best decision I’ve ever made in my life.
What were your favorite courses and why?
Tough question, but I must say Typography. John Beach who taught the course was amazing. I never would have thought that I would end up becoming a typography nerd.
What’s a project (student or professional) that you’re particularly proud of?
I like my poster designs; they reflect the deepness in me. And my jewelry designs. However, I love making graphics, so the children’s books project I’m also proud of. That’s one of the next projects I have going on, making a fun children’s book with all the presidents of the United States.
Where do you see yourself professionally in 5 years?
I want to start my jewelry business and do more children’s books. I see myself doing that and some freelance work.
Thank you, Lina!
