SCHOOL OF ADVERTISING ART (SAA)
Caitlin McCurdy is a 19-year-old from Sylvania OH and she loves her hometown. She believes that friends and family are what help us all get through life. She has a strong support system from home, but believes that SAA has given her the opportunity to find a family of friends who will help her continue to grow not only as a designer, but as a human being. As a designer, Caitlin feels she has the freedom to make the world look the way she wants it to. She loves designing packages, but has an even greater love for concepting and designing magazine print ads. Photography is also close to her heart. This road to becoming a graphic designer is a crazy one that has been filled with lots of stress, laughter, and learning, but Caitlin wouldn’t want it any other way, and she is incredibly excited to see where it takes her.
