About 

I have just graduated from the University of Delaware with a BFA in Visual Communications.  The past four years have been spent learning and experimenting with various fine art techniques, including screen-printing, letterpress, printmaking and photography.  During my junior and senior year I focused on graphic design and layout and have become well versed in Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop.  I enjoy working on a team and collaborating with others.  This past year I have had two internships.  Over the winter I worked as a graphic design intern for UJMN Architects and Designers helping them with their website redesign as well as creating various advertisements.  This past spring I was a Visual Intern at Anthropologie helping with display planning, construction and installation. I am an artistic individual who is inspired by nature, art, literature and people who works well both individually and as part of a team to produce innovative design. Samples of my work can be found on my website http://allisonhess.com/.
