2020 has been a year unlike any other. The word…
Since we’re a relatively new team, you may know some of us but not others. Over the next few months, we’ll introduce you to each member of the Propel team. Meet Graphic Design Intern Bryson Currier.
Propel: Bryson, it’s good to see you! We’re ready to show you off to the world. Our first question has to do with food, naturally. So tell us: what’s your favorite food?
BC: Well, I’ve always felt that it would be rude to discriminate against all other foods by picking a favorite—but I do have an undeniable affinity for cheese sticks.
P: Cheese sticks are a worthy choice. Okay, next question. You’re from North Carolina, so tell us: What’s your favorite thing to do at the state fair?
BC: I’d have to say people watching. I always enjoy seeing all the different kinds of characters that show up for the games, rides and food. There’s never a dull moment at the state fair, that’s for sure. Besides people watching, I enjoy looking at the chickens! But really, there’s so much to do at the state fair, so it’s hard to pick any single thing.
P: If there’s one thing we can be sure of, it’s that it’s not a true state fair trip if you haven’t checked out some animals—although we’re partial to the rabbits (so cute). Can you tell us a little bit about where you go to school?
BC: Of course! I attend Meredith College. I love the small class sizes, and my professors have been great. It’s the perfect environment for my style of learning. I’ve made some pretty amazing friends and learned a lot along the way!
P: Sounds like you’re in the right place! So how did you found your way to Propel?
BC: I actually found out about Propel through a design class at Meredith. One of my professors told me that Propel was looking for a design intern and he thought they would be a great fit for me. I checked the website and saw where you listed “taco-loving” as a requirement. Since I love tacos, I figured I would be doing myself a disservice if I didn’t apply.
P: We knew that bit about tacos would work. If you need an intern, show them the tacos—or something like that. How did you get interested with graphic design?
BC: Oh, fun fact: I actually didn’t begin designing until my sophomore year of college. I picked graphic design as my major because I loved art and one of my professors told me it would be a great choice for me. I followed the advice and I haven’t turned back since.
P: Good professors give good advice. We’re glad you listened! What do you love most about graphic design?
BC: That’s easy! What I love most is seeing my idea for how to solve a problem come to fruition in a beautiful way. It’s hard to explain, but it’s such a wonderful feeling when you see a concept you’ve worked so hard on become reality. You know what I mean?
P: Spoken like a true designer. Okay, now it’s time for our last question. At Propel, we like to say we’re a superpower for our clients. What’s your super power?
BC: I guess my current super power is that I can complete at least one Netflix original series every few days (two a day if it’s the weekend). I suppose this says something about my ability to really lock in to what I find interesting?
