Turning the Tassel: Moving from College to a Career
Recent ID grads from North Carolina State University—Holly Coggins and Emily Wise—share their journey from college into the professional world and offer advice to the next generation of designers.
Both work in Charlotte, NC—Coggins, for a major corporation, Newell Brands, in the structural packaging innovation department with a small consultancy feel; Wise, as an industrial designer at the global company, Britax, designing strollers and child car seats.
