I
was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

I’m currently a Junior in Graphic Design at the University of the

Pacific in Stockton, California; however, my actual major back in

Brazil is Product Design.

I’ve been interested in art since school. I wasn’t sure about which

major I wanted to do in college because I was also interested in

Math and Physics, but I decided in design because I was inspired

by a great professor that I had when I was in the seventh grade.

Besides that, I was influenced by my step-father who works with

large companies that design products, such as cell phones and

computers. Because of him, design has always been part of

my life.

My experiences of studying one semester in another country,

having to deal with a different language and seeing how people

from another culture think, was a really enriching experience

both personally and academically. I have no doubt that Graphic

Design will help me as a Product Designer. When I return to

Brazil, I’ll have a hard time deciding if I want to work with

Product or Graphic Design, perhaps even both.

M
y name is Lauren and I am approaching my senior

year in Graphic Design at the University of the Pacific

in Stockton, California. I was born and raised in sunny

Modesto, California.

From a young age to my years as a college student, my love of

design has blossomed from playful craft projects into creations

that have a motive to communicate and express thought. Before

Pacific, I attended Modesto Junior College, which allowed me to

explore this growing passion. I wasn’t fully aware of the direction

I wanted to pursue in the arts and humanities until I declared

myself as a Graphic Design major upon entering Pacific. My

decision as a transfer student was influenced by an art history

professor who exposed me to the many attractive styles of

art, and later, to an unforgettable experience that brought me

to the streets of Italy. It was at this point when I realized that

Graphic Design would always allow exploration and new

discoveries in design and art, as well as a feeling of passion

towards the work I produce.

I am a person who is driven, dedicated, and grateful for what

I am doing, not only because of the experiences I’m receiving at

Pacific, but also for my supportive family. My goal as a designer is

to have a positive influence and always maintain the enthusiasm

I have for art. Wherever I am in the future, I know I’ll be designing

with passion. Designing has become an exciting part of my life

that is now integrated into my everyday experiences, such as

travel, fashion, and cooking.

H
i, I am Samantha Kowalski! I’m currently a Junior/Senior

at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. I’m

working towards completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic

Design and obtaining a certificate in Pre-Law. I am originally from

Elk Grove, California, but moved to Salinas in 1995 when I was

eight years old. I’m an only child which influences why I am self

motivated and independent.

I became interested in Graphic Design in my Senior year at

Everett Alvarez High School in Salinas, California in 2005. Prior to

my Senior year I never took an art course other than art history.

In my Senior year I enrolled in the Yearbook class which allowed

me to explore an unknown artistic talent. In Yearbook I was

responsible for the budget, but ended up designing the entire

book. I designed the page layouts. At this time, I was asked by

Josten’s to apply for a position upon receiving a Graphic Design

degree. I created the name for the yearbook “Transformation”

because during this time my high school was going through a

redesign. New buildings were built and improvements were made.

Besides art I have other interests. I am interested in law. I live for

the moment for the day I can stand before a Judge and argue a

case. My ultimate goals are to become a political figure who can

influence and affect change. I am passionate in all that I do. Every

project whether it’s large or small I throw myself into it. Whether

it is art, law, or something else I will remain passionate and never

forget how I got to where I am today!

Look Back [noun]

I
was born in Denver, Colorado, on January 29, 1987. I was the

fourth of five children to be born in the U.S. after my parents

emigrated from Mexico in 1982.

After moving around for some time, my family settled in

Stockton, California in 1998. I attended Franklin High and

graduated in 2005 with honors. I completed general education

courses at San Joaquin Delta College and transferred to the

University of the Pacific as a Graphic Design major in 2007.

Growing up, I lived well within the realms of poverty. Though

my family went through many hardships, looking back, I feel

fortunate to have had a loving family and siblings that share

my enthusiasm for art. Thinking retrospectively about my life,

I’m afflicted and at the same time equally grateful to have had

such an experience. In many ways, it prepared me for future

challenges by asserting the value of work ethics and forcing me

to be creative with my resources. In the end, my experiences

have had the effect of encouraging my development as an artist.

As a student I [try and] have tried to continually challenge

myself, as I’m driven by my concepts. Initially I produced art not

for “art’s sake” but art for my sake. However, in the process of

exploring possibilities and researching various topics I began

to understand and develop a great interest in practical art and

design that serves a greater purpose beyond aesthetic qualities.

This new sensibility has helped me to reconnect to the world

around me and refocus as an artist.

these are our Production Notes[noun]

Printed on Neenah Environment® Premium Recycled Paper. The

paper consists of 100% post consumer paper is FSC Certified and

alternative fiber papers, made with 100% green energy, and is Green

Seal Certified and archival.

The pages within the magazine are printed on Neenah Mesa White

The cover of the magazine is printed on Neenah Mesa White Smooth

consumer fiber.

The magazine was printed on an EPSON Stylus Pro 4800 printer with

printer profile Pro 4800 EMP_MK and media type enhanced matte

paper on superphoto 2880dpi with printer color management off.

The typefaces that were used were Gotham Book for the body text

and for the headings we used Base12sfsc, and a few individualized

typefaces for the individual spreads.

Environmental Savings

By printing on environmental paper we were able to save six pounds

of wood which is less than one tree and saved enough oxygen for

one person. We saved seven gallons of water which is enough for one

person to take an eight minute shower. We saved enough energy to

power one house for one day. We saved two pounds of carbon

emissions which is equivalent for one tree growing for ten years. We

saved one pound of solid waste which equals one 32 gallon container.
