What do you remember about your first visit to PCA&D?
Why PCA&D? What drew you to our college community?
JR: Some of the factors that made me choose PCA&D was the amount of diversity here as well as how small the school is and classes are which, in my opinion, creates a better learning environment.
Did you know you wanted to study Graphic Design when you arrived at PCA&D?
JR: I did know I was going to study graphic design when I came to PCA&D due to the fact that I already majored in it in high school and it was very successful for me.
Jose, what would your dream job be after college? Have you had a class or experience at PCA&D that really has enabled you to work toward that goal?
JR: My dream job would be to work for a design firm or advertising company. Anything I can apply my skills to and work with others. PCA&D has really put me in that direction since I do it most of the time in my courses.
Have you lived in PCA&D student housing or commuted to the College?
JR: I commute to PCA&D by car, I live just outside the city.
How have your relationships with your professors and the College’s small class size impacted your experience?
JR: The small size of the school is beneficial to the learning experience. The students and staff have more of a connection, and learning is way easier.
What’s your favorite annual College event?
JR: My favorite annual college event would have to be Designathon. It’s such a good opportunity to work with others and enjoy the process.
What’s your favorite art tool?
JR: My favorite art tool will always be my computer. If I had to pick something else it’d just be a paper and pencil, because that’s where I started.
Right now, who inspires you in your field?
JR: It’s hard to pick a favorite designer or artist. My favorite designers in my field would be Saul Bass and Leta Sobierajski. These artists are more innovative and that is what I love. But in all honesty my professors inspire me all the time. My two favorite professors I had and/or have are Jeremy Friend and Maria Cummings-Miller. They teach their craft the best and I have always loved working with them and I know I progress every time I am around them.
