Project Connect DP&E founder, Amy Roehl is interested in creating authentic connections between design education and design practice. A big believer in field trips, her idea to connect students to design professionals through web-based video came to her a few years ago when she was teaching on a geographically-challenged college campus:
“I realized that many students have limited access to design professionals due to the location of their school. The videos are a way to bring designers into the “classroom” without going on an actual field trip.”
After working for 10 years in the Chicago design industry, Amy recently moved to Texas where she is a full-time interior design educator at Texas Christian University.
Molly Deb is Project Connect DP&E’s mastermind behind the fine-tuned video editing. She is a recent graduate of TCU’s Interior Design program with strong technology skills (Revit, AutoCAD, Photoshop, Illustrator, imovie. . . ) and would love to find an entry-level interior design job, so please email her with any leads!
Graphic designer Joe Howard takes great pride in the web site he's created, as well as the logo, for Project Connect DP&E. He gratuated nearly two years ago from Texas Christian University with his BFA in graphic design.
He has worked on several freelance projects during his time as a student and since graduating, and is always interested in more. He would also be interested in meeting about a full-time graphic design opportunity, since he has spent his years after graduating working at a bank...
