Hi I’m Brandilyn but everyone calls me Brandi. I've lived in Southern California my
whole life. As a kid I had dreams of grander; I never thought I’d end up pursuing art
as a career. It all started my freshman year of high school when I decided to take a
stab at forum signature and banner making. I taught myself Paint Shop Pro and then Photoshop CS3. As my skills increased, I eventually graduated from signatures to
forum design and even got as far as teaching myself very basic HTML and CSS for
code editing.

I never thought about Graphic Design seriously as a career until a presenter from
FIDM came into one of my classes my junior year and began talking about the school and what they had to offer. At that moment, I knew what I wanted to do. For the longest time I had been lost trying to figure out where I wanted to go to college and what I wanted to major in but that presentation made me decide that I wanted to
turn my hobby into a career. I was accepted into FIDM the summer before my senior year.

After high school I went straight into college and graduated in December 2010 with honors from FIDM with an AA degree in Graphic Design with an emphasis in branding.

I am currently at Lollicup USA, Inc. as the Digital Marketing Team Lead. I helped the company transition from Magento to NetSuite's Suite Commerce Advanced platform which is now fully integrated with our ERP system. I am in charge of maintaining the e-commerce site as well as designing and coding promotional e-blasts and announcements for both our customers and distributors. I also oversee our social media, PPC, and corporate websites.
