Today we’d like to introduce you to Eileen Riestra.
Eileen, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I still remember the day I designed my first piece of graphic design. It was in my third-grade class in 1990. Computers were introduced in my classroom and the teachers asked us to play with the software Paint already installed in the Apple Macs. I came up with a fish made out of big pixels, and I remember the teacher showing it off to the rest of my classmates. I went home proud and gave my mom my first computer generated artwork. Throughout high school, I often helped my friends design covers for their presentations. And by the time I was applying to college I knew I wanted to be a graphic designer.
