Are you a senior Design Student or a recent graduate? Do you have a solution or outstanding idea that shows your talent as a designer? Would you like to have the opportunity of showing your creativity and skills in a less rigid format?
San Francisco Design Week invites you to participate in HireMe, a way to showcase your talent and get the spotlight on your unique way of solving for challenges.
How it works?
San Francisco Design Week aims to inspire and enable progress in the creative community. This year, we’ve taken a step back and revisited our mission to better reflect the world around us. The following principles are designed to inform our perspective as we shape better futures together.
This year’s theme, POWER, puts these values into practice as we explore how design can be used to help shift the balance of power in the right direction
Meet Program Ambassador Irrie Catchings III
Irrie recently graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi this May with a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design.
Some of his goals after graduation are to develop his career in design, with aspirations to open his own design agency to provide opportunities for lower-income students and people. He also plans to further pursue a degree in theoretical physics, so that he can develop his own research center.
Irrie is ready to move to San Francisco to start his design career, where he wants to eventually work with different brands and organizations to learn more about the design industry. He believes there are so many people to learn from, and that he can become a better designer from that.
