SCHOOL OF ADVERTISING ART (SAA)
Caleb Ritter is a Hybrid Design student in his final year at the School of Advertising Art. Growing up as a thoughtful creative, he discovered a passion for design during two years in a career center digital design program. Participating in SkillsUSA and landing multiple internships fueled his curiosity for a professional career in advertising. At SAA, he is advancing his graphic design skills while expanding into motion design, web design, and photography. He believes art has the awesome ability to deeply affect people and hopes to use this power to better the world. Caleb would like to thank his family, friends, and instructors for inspiring and empowering him since the days of his kitchen fridge masterpieces.
