Seeking my next creative intern

I’ve been very lucky to have had Alex work with me for the past 6 months!! She has been a rockstar!! Alex is heading back to Boston at the end of June to finish out her senior year at Northeastern University. This is one uber prepared lady and a good designer to boot!! Alex has created the identity for The Sweet Spot, laid out each weeks Sketchbook Story at lightening speed, and is a great hiking and wine tasting partner. My fingers are crossed that she’ll make her way back to the Bay Area after she graduates, cause she is definitely someone that I want to keep in my circle of friends.

AM: Working with Cindy Ann was phenomenal. I got a chance to produce for and learn about the licensing industry, as well as blogging. This internship offers the chance to create not only digitally but also with your hands. Its a variety of projects and collaboration that is well worth the time spent in the studio. Additionally, I got to hang out with a cool lady & a look into her life as a self sustaining designer. Thanks for everything Cindy Ann!
