Pamela Rounis: Design ninja
Posted November 3, 2014
“IDEA has a reputation for creating extremely hirable graduates,” says Pamela Rounis. “We’re taught how to think conceptually along with the hard skills necessary to execute. We’re basically design ninjas.”
Nowadays, Pamela is a designer at Rethink, one of Vancouver’s top advertising agencies, where she works with clients such as Shaw, Molson and A&W. As if that wasn’t enough, in her spare time, she also works as the lead designer for local arts and culture magazine Sad Mag.
“The IDEA program is like design boot camp. You come out of it exhausted, but feeling prepared for any design challenge.” - Pamela Rounis, IDEA Grad 2010
