Meet Abby Mayes
I am about to enter my Senior year at Clemson University, in Clemson, South Carolina. I am pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Communications with a minor in Business Administration. My experience at Clemson has been amazing thus far both educationally and personally. There has been many wonderful opportunities including study abroad, internships, and countless hands on experiences. Go Tigers!
I recently got the opportunity to study abroad in London, taking a class in international packaging design. The class consisted of researching both US and UK packaging within grocery stores, and then adapting US product package to sell in the UK. Instead of a traditional class setting we spent time at PI Global in Notting Hill to receive their feedback and advice. This was a great experience that I will remember for the rest of my life.
This past spring semester (January-May 2016) I temporarily moved to New York City for an internship at Diadeis. My position at Diadeis was the Project Management Intern where I oversaw the daily operation of various accounts, including L'Oreal and LVMH. Communicate with client staff at all levels. I also assisted Account Executives with administrative functions, billing, and accounting, and other various office duties. This experience has prepared me for life after college and gotten me excited to find out what my next step will be.
After graduation in May of 2017, I plan to begin work in the Graphic Communications industry, and more specifically within packaging design. With no geographic preference in mind, I am excited to see where life takes me next.
