Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 21, 2012
In July, GraphicDesign.com began accepting applicants for its all-new Student Council in conjunction with CreativeInterns.com. This week, the graphic design news and information portal is pleased to announce the 10 members of its first ever Student Council.
The President of GraphicDesign.com's Student Council is Juliette Weiss, who can be found at the Rhode Island School of Design.

She has worked for the Subaru of New England as a graphic designer for over three years, and also has past experience as a photographer for local newspapers." She'll drive the Student Council's agenda and will continually engage the student community on GraphicDesign.com.
The 2012 Presidential election is nearly here and taking a seat front-and-center in the campaign for incumbent Barack Obama is Jane Gardner, a Design Fellow who will serve as the Council's Vice President and maintain control of the group whenever Weiss is absent. She'll be instrumental in implementing student-friendly changes on GraphicDesign.com.
