A little over two years ago, I was sprinting toward the U.S. Embassy in Mumbai, India trying to make it to my visa interview on time. No bags or electronic devices are allowed inside the embassy, so I’d locked them inside my car. To add to my woes, I’d been forced to leave my car in a no-parking zone. I had a thin, plastic folder in my hand, overflowing with the documents I’d been advised to carry to the interview. Read More

Student Profile | Jase Hueser | University of Nerbaska at Kearney

Jase Hueser UNK 2018

My name is Jase Hueser. I am originally from Papillion, Nebraska. I have always found art compelling and invested much of my early years into music and drawing. I was pulled in by the duality of art, as it contains both an intellectual rationality and dense emotion. In my junior high years, I discovered the wonders of branding and typography. Understanding what makes a clever logo and more importantly, a successful implementation of an identity had become an obsession of mine. I was thrilled to discover that design was a vocation that I could potentially pursue. Thus began years of experimentation as I studied designers and relentlessly tried my hand at it. Read More

Kristi Bolling Creative Center Student 2018

Recently, I volunteered to assist during the American Advertising Awards – Nebraska ADDYs judging day this year at SKAR. I had a lot of fun meeting professionals from across the country and seeing the work that was entered for the Nebraska ADDYs this year. I also attended Meet the Pros this year and significantly enjoyed the event. The speakers spoke of the hurdles they went through and how they overcame each one. There was a portfolio critique, and I managed to visit three pros, who gave me helpful advice on expanding my skills. Read More

Five Things You Didn’t Know About AAF Omaha Member Erica Rowe

2015 October 09 - Staff at OBI Creative in Omaha, NE.

I have a passion for making things pretty – taking chaos and making it organized, beautiful and easy to understand. Graphic design in a nutshell I guess. As a Creative Director, I am passionate about helping others in their journey to make things beautiful/solve problems/succeed. There are always going to be challenges and hard situations to deal with but if you can face them with positivity and a passion to solve them together then everyone wins. Read More
