Feds Spotlight on… Me!

Joanne Lau

Every week, the Federation of Students (Feds) will profile an outstanding club, volunteer, or part-time staff member in the Spotlight series.

I was featured in a Feds Spotlight a while back and it made me think of how being a Graphic Designer at Feds has influenced me.

I have worked for the Feds Marketing Department for almost two years now. I’ve work part-time during my academic terms and it really boosts my happiness level during school. It’s a great work environment and the people who I work with are extremely awesome. I actually look forward to working there and I can’t wait to go back.

The job has given me many opportunities that I would not have been able to find elsewhere. Most of my Design Portfolio is from my work at Feds. One of my favourite projects was designing the menu for the Bombshelter Pub. I’m also able to incorporate photography into the job every once in a while too. I had so much fun covering the concert with Faber Drive during Feds Welcome Week.

Working as a Graphic Designer for Feds has really increased my passion for design. Before, it was more like a side hobby but I’ve learned that design is something you can and should integrate with everyday life. I’ve considered multiple futures for myself but I know now that design will definitely be related to whatever I end up doing.
