Our very own Cassandra Smolcic ’06 returned to campus recently to talk with all of us here in Susquehanna’s graphic design program about her experiences as a feature film graphic designer at PIXAR animation studios in San Francisco! Cassandra gave an extraordinary design-majors-only talk about what it’s like working on films such as Toy Story 3, Cars, Brave, and Monsters University. Cassandra described her creative process in great detail, and explained all the ins ands outs of working collaboratively with the rest of the geniuses at Pixar. She was even kind enough to workshop with current design students — attending critiques and giving feedback, and even going to dinner with us. We are really proud of her accomplishments and grateful that she’d take time out of her job to fly all the way across the country just to hang out with us for a few days!
