ABI Profile: Sasha
is a Melbourne-based designer and illustrator who graduated in 2017 with a Bachelor of Communication Design and a Bachelor of Media and Communication (Honours) from RMIT. She interned this spring with Printed Matter Inc., a nonprofit art organization in New York City.
"I worked as a Programming Intern at Printed Matter Inc. in New York. I assisted the Programming Manager with all of their exhibitions and events. This involved bibliographic work, assisting with exhibition curation and installation, and plenty of graphic design work. I was able to design promotional material, assist with book design projects, and rebrand Printed Matter’s postcards, gift certificates and wholesale catalog."

"ArtBound was invaluable throughout the visa application process and I felt like I was part of a community before I even arrived in New York."
A design project Sasha worked on at Printed Matter Inc. for Cloud Service
"I believe this internship will give me a big boost in the publishing and design industries, not only because it’s provided so many networking opportunities, but also because it’s given me the ability to build and strengthen my portfolio."
