My Design Path
Hi there! My name is Ravyn Galimore and I'm currently a Senior at Clemson University. My major is Management with an emphasis in Information Systems and a minor in Brand Communications. At the moment, I'm also choosing to take various Graphic Communications classes to expand my knowledge on both the technical and creative side of design and development.
Ever since my sophomore year of high school, I've found myself infatuated with the digital design and social media world. Not only does the Internet drastically increase the speed at which we communicate with one another, it also reinvents the way we view the world around us. Watching videos instead of reading newspapers, using images to tell a story, truly pinpoints the phrase "a picture is worth a thousand words". And that's what I'm all about and that's what I want to contribute to. Fortunately enough, during my high school journey, I was able to receive a heavy dose of the design world. Serving as design editor my junior year and as editor in chief my senior year, I was able to tackle a majority of the design found in the yearbook(s) and also teach and train staff members (new and old). While this task was admittedly a challenging one, I ultimately persevered showing skills of leadership, innovation, and the mindset to just keep pushing.
Apart from my involvement with the yearbook staff, I additionally was the only student-member involved with my high schools website redesign and development. After approaching the Head of School with a desire to give back to a school that had given so much to me, I found myself working diligently, yet enthusiastically. Paired with my schools Advancement Team, we collaborated and worked on minimizing the word count and maximizing user content. Using design techniques such as infographics, videos (and additional multimedia), as well as pictures, I was able to alter the way prospective and current families viewed Fredericksburg Academy. Feel free to click here to explore the redesigned website! Continuing my involvement as a newfound member of the Advancement Team, I was asked to construct an infographic style video to showcase to prospective families. The video would focus on affordability and I was able to learn the ins and outs of Powtoon (the host site used to construct the video) - watch here!
Most recently, I can be found working behind the scenes for Clemson Athletics as a graphic design student assistant within the Creative Solutions Department. The youngest member of the team, I have been working in a creative community using creative cloud programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, and Illustrator to create and edit fresh content that's distributed among various Clemson Athletics social media platforms, print production, and website development.
