Sofia and Joelle speak on Parsons Communication Design Alumni Panel

Sofia and Joelle, part of the MESH design team here, took a field trip to their alma mater, Parsons the New School for Design to sit on an informal panel with several other recent alumni to speak on their experiences. They were asked, “what would you tell yourself this time a year ago, in the middle of working on your theses and finishing up your final year of design school?”

Here was their advice:

Give yourself time to be a person. Sometimes it’s just as important to take a break from working on your projects as it is to work on it.

Take care of your health. You’re going to have the same body forever, past thesis and beyond work. It’s important to take care of it.

Reflect and learn about yourself. Through the process of working through an intense project, you’ll learn a lot about yourself and about the way you work.

They’re both grateful for the chance to speak with other alumni and try to help the next class of students get to the next phase of their careers as designers. Let’s all note, too: they’re also proud of themselves for getting through that time themselves and loving what they do! You’ve always got to start somewhere.
