Hi, I’m Miriam and this blog is an ongoing assignment for the course Digital Design 680 at Pratt Institute, where I’m a grad student studying Visual Communications. My undergraduate degree is from the University of Pittsburgh, where I studied Marketing and International Business. I chose marketing as a career path because it it allows me to relate my passion for creative expression with the satisfaction related to helping grow a business.
I have over seven years of marketing and design experience. In the future, I hope to use design thinking to promote community learning, awareness and behavioral change in the areas of health, safety and education.
