Ashley Ivey talks graphic arts & design at Clemson

Published on May 10, 2010

Cary Sherburne:  Hi, Cary Sherburne, Senior Editor at WhatTheyThink.com and I'm here with Ashley Ivey who is an undergrad student, graphic communications at Clemson.  Welcome.

Ashley Ivey:  Thank you for having me.

Cary Sherburne:  So, tell me a little bit about why you chose graphic communications as a major?

Ashley Ivey:  I have a creative background and I was drawn into the design aspect of graphic communications because in graphics at Clemson, we learn to design and do print press and actually print the products from start to finish, it’s not just graphic design.  So, as I’ve been in Clemson, I’ve developed an emphasis on all areas and I’m really interested in the total printing industry but **** at Clemson was actual design aspect of graphics.

Cary Sherburne:  So, John **** is a very famous professor from there, he’s been on WhatTheyThink a number of times, and he does a lot of work in variable data.  Have you been involved in any of those programs yet?

Ashley Ivey:  I have, we produce variable data mailers and brochures just for class projects.   You can pick a company and brand them and just experience the software get an idea of it.  We also are working with Pearls currently in class and are now understanding that software and that part of the business.  So that’s very interesting.

Cary Sherburne:  How long until you graduate?

Ashley Ivey:  I will graduate in two semesters, so this coming December.

Cary Sherburne:  Ah, so you’re looking for internships probably pretty soon.

Ashley Ivey:  I’ve already interned once and learned more printing, but I will be interning again this coming summer, hopefully if I can find one.

Cary Sherburne:  Great, well that’s great.  Well congratulations and welcome to the industry.

Ashley Ivey:  Thank you.
