Internship Success Story: Arielle Winchester

May 8, 2012

Arielle Winchester ’12 not only will be graduating from Montserrat College of Art this May with a BFA in Graphic Design, but  she was also chosen by her peers to be their student speaker during Commencement 2012 on Friday, May 25th!

And to top it all off, Winchester already has plans for post-graduation! She has recently been hired for a full-time position at Montserrat’s Board of Trustee member Don Bowen‘s company, Meridian Associates, as their Marketing Coordinator! She was offered the opportunity after interning with them last summer.

During her internship at Meridian, Winchester worked closely with their Business Coordinator, Melissa Fahey, who was planning her wedding at the time. Fahey hired Winchester to do some freelance design work to help create her wedding materials when she wasn’t busy working in the office.

In her work, Winchester hopes to bridge the gap between tactile and digital design. Through her education and freelance work she has gained experience in everything from marketing, to web coding, to letterpress. A tremendous amount of effort, care and passion go into every project that she takes on.

Congratulations, Arielle!
