NC STATE COLLEGE OF DESIGN

Joseph Rogers is a graphic designer finishing his last year at NC State College of Design. From a very young age Joseph always knew he wanted to do something creative. He had many creative interests and opportunities to explore the arts but his passion landed on graphic design (to his mother’s delight who is also a designer). Joseph has spent many semesters interning with companies in downtown Raleigh, in addition to working for the University – improving his technical and professional abilities while understanding and designing for complex design solutions. From his passion of playing games, he created unique board game designs that evolved into an online business. Upon graduation Joseph wants to pursue a career in user experience and corporate design, combining his love for technical applications and brand identity.
