Alumni Profile: Emily Zuwiala, Lead Designer, Warkulwiz Design Associates

 

news_alumni_emilyz1

This just in from alum Emily Zuwiala (PhilaU GDC, 2010): After leaving Hayward Hall for that last time in 2010, I can’t say I really had any idea of where I wanted to work. I knew I wanted to do great work and work for good people. Sounds easy enough, right? After graduating from PhilaU I started my career with an internship at a small Philadelphia agency and followed that with a stint in the advertising department of Philadelphia Magazine in a temporary position. I worked on anything from hot sauce labels for a local company to wine and liquor advertising. Then one day soon after I received a missed call from Bob Warkulwiz. Anyone who has come through the PhilaU Graphic Design program has had Bob. His teaching style is something to be remembered, so needless to say I was interested to know why I was getting a call from him.
