Laura Wilkens (class of 2013) is a graphic designer at Matrix Partners in Chicago. Matrix is an award-winning brand strategy and communications firm specializing in pet product advertising, publicity and promotions.
Laura, who double-majored in Visual Communication and film at Loyola, primarily works on package design, trade show design, and similar advertising work at Matrix.
Laura has also designed and edited interactive videos for Matrix clients, putting her video editing and motion graphics skills to work. She says that “it’s very busy and [they] work very long hours, but there’s usually dogs around our office which definitely helps you get through the day.”
This year, Laura submitted her Senior Design Thesis from Loyola to the American Graphic Design Awards held annually by Graphic Design USA magazine. Of the 8,000+ entries submitted, Laura’s project was one of the 15% chosen to be awarded with a National Design Award and it will be published in the December issue of GD USA
