ART INSTITUTE OF TAMPA BA IN GRAPHIC DESIGN

Peter Aberg is close to graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in graphic design from The Art Institute of Tampa. He also has a BA in business administration from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster PA. Peter is a self-motivated, disciplined designer whose real-life managerial experience has pushed him into leadership roles. For the inaugural year of AiTa’s student chapter of AAF, he was asked to serve as president. His interest in design started in high school’s “computer graphics” class #8211; where he was introduced to Photoshop. For years, Peter was a design-hobbyist, creating frat party flyers, photo-manipulations, and print advertisements with horrible kerning and no white space. Then one day, he realized that graphic design was less about flashy graphics and more about intelligent design; two weeks later, Peter quit his job and went back to school. Soon, he will be looking for work in branding/advertising.
