Hello everyone! My name is Vipul, I’m the new Graphic Designer for The Orchard.
A quick background: I just moved to New York earlier this month from Orange County, California and graduated in the spring of 2014 from California State University, Long Beach, with a BFA in Graphic Design, concentrating mainly on branding.
Things I like about New York so far:
- Working at a company like The Orchard, where I get to create design for the music & film industry
- Awesome public transportation. It’s easy to get around anywhere and everywhere (vs. Cali, where I had to drive all the time)
- Awesome variety of food
- Tons of things to do: museums, bars, Central Park, all sorts of Meetups. (Design is very concentrated in NYC and that is a big inspiration for me moving here.)
- I feel very safe in the city
Things I like to do for fun:
- Go to museums and art/design galleries
- Play and watch anything basketball. (I can’t wait to watch a Knicks or Nets game live.)
- Explore and travel
- Try all sorts of new food
- Hang out with friends and bar hop!
I’m looking forward to working with everyone here, and appreciate the warm welcome.
