Student Spotlight on Daniel Easley
September 27, 2017
Born and raised in Decatur, Daniel Easley is a current undergrad student studying Graphic Design in the Lamar Dodd School of Art at UGA. He applied to Archway at the end of his sophomore year in 2016 after hearing about the opportunity from previous Archway Graphic Designer Jake Green, and started working shortly thereafter.
Since working at Archway, Easley has been able to see his work benefit multiple communities throughout the state of Georgia. He says the most rewarding projects he has worked on are those where he has more responsibility in shaping the design, including several logo projects, a Christmas Assistance brochure, and a Low Birthweight Resource Booklet. Easley considers projects like these to be the most gratifying because he believes the projects themselves will do great things in each community.
Easley feels that Archway has instilled in him a professional and responsible attitude. The various projects that he has worked on have prepared him for his future and helped him decide which type of design he would like to focus on in his career. In addition, he feels the experience he has gained working at Archway has enhanced his education in the field.
“I’ve gotten to know how to use the design software so much better during my time at Archway, which is a reflection of the sheer amount of time I’ve spent designing,” Easley said.
Currently, Easley is working on designing a brochure for the Upstairs Downtown Tour in Sandersonville, GA, a brochure for the Hart County Botanical Gardens, and on designing the Habersham Graduation Publication.
After graduating, Easley plans on initially working in Graphic Design in the Atlanta area. In terms of big picture, he’d like to work at a design studio, in-house at a magazine, or work with design that promotes other creative fields.
