Hi! I’m Lydia, I’m currently a Senior (yikes) at DePaul and I’m hoping to work as a creative in the ad industry once I graduate. I love conceptualizing ideas on the creative direction side, but I also love the graphic design/production creation aspects that go into art direction, so who knows what I’ll end up doing! Being from Cleveland and now living in Chicago, I love the midwest but hope to be working in NYC in the future.

I think advertising is such a powerful tool that shapes our perceptions and ideologies, and that it should be used for more that just selling goods and services, but rather for positive change. With that in mind, I’d like to get into creating pro-bono work, and perhaps hone in on non-profit marketing.

In my free time, you can find me working at Chicago Bagel Authority, hanging out in a Wrigleyville coffee shop, or at my apartment with my cat. I’m so excited to be a part of the TAS team this year, and can’t wait to collaborate with all you wonderful people!
