“The MDM has been a perfect transition to the work I do now – which is art direction for apps, websites, and motion graphics pieces. I’m working with multidisciplinary teams, on many projects at a time. I constantly think back to the experiences I had at the MDM to shape the ideas behind the work I do now.”
