Crista Cunningham (BST ’14) didn’t grow up a huge football fan but now roots for the Cincinnati Bengals, and with good reason: her logo is worn by the Special Teams Squad.

She uses her major — graphic communications, with an emphasis in graphic design and a minor in commercial art — daily in her job at Pitsco Education as a multimedia graphic artist.

She also has a freelance business designing logos and posters for area organizations, and was happy to help a colleague’s brother, who is the Special Teams Coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals and was in search of a logo.

Cunningham said she owes much of her knowledge and skill to hands-on experiences in Gamma Epsilon Tau, and to her professors. “They don’t simply teach how to use software,” she said, “but how to be a good communicator and how to see the project globally. This knowledge plays on a continuous loop in my brain when creating a design for clients. The support they offered me inside and outside the classroom was invaluable and I’m grateful for my time there.”
