Co-Op Joins USDP: Meet Brittany!

Brittany McIntosh

Tell everyone a little about where you are from…

I’m from Alexandria, Kentucky, which is located about 15 minutes south of NKU. It’s a great city with a nice balance between rural and suburban life. It’s kind of a small town, so working in downtown Cincinnati has been a really unique experience for me so far. It’s a little overwhelming being surrounded by so many people and buildings, but it’s exciting!

What are you studying in school?

I go to Northern Kentucky University, my major is BFA in Visual Communication Design.

What will be your primary role at US Digital Partners?

I will be working as a design co-op student. I will be helping out the team creating design concepts for clients, but mostly learning about interactive design and marketing!

Why did you want to co-op at US Digital Partners?

I have been interested in learning more about interaction design, and when I first heard about USDP, I was impressed by their work. When I came in for an interview, I really liked the people here! I was looking for a co-op opportunity that would challenge me, and I know that USDP will do just that!

What do you think about the people you are working with so far?

They are all great. Everyone has been so friendly, and helpful. They seem like fun to work with, and they are great at communicating, which makes everything so much easier.

Do you have any particular goals for your co-op experience at USDP?

Yes! I would love to learn as much as I can about how design works in the real world, and after only one day I have already learned so much. I would like to have a better understanding of the business/marketing side of design, which isn’t something I learned much about in school. I want to work on my skills presenting and talking about projects, and meeting with clients. I also hope to gain new design skills, and to build my network with experienced mentors and friends.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I love to be outside. I like to go hiking, or camping, or just go for a walk. I like to keep a vegetable garden in the Summer. I also enjoy video games and watching Netflix! I like to spend time with my friends on the weekends, going to a Reds game or just getting some lunch.
