FASHION INSTITUTE OF DESIGN AND MERCHANDISING (FIDM)

Dmitri Walker is a Los Angeles-based freelance graphic designer who currently attends FIDM as a graphic design major. Prior to studying graphic design, Walker graduated FIDM in 2011, but came back because he wanted to pursue a field with more creative freedom. Recently, he was a semi-finalist in the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) “Student Challenge Competition – Big Pitch.” Walker will do whatever it takes to break into the graphic design industry. His goal is to own a creative graphic design firm that specializes in marketing for brands.
