Relocating To A New City After Graduation – feat. Colleen Anthes & Kelsey Tupper
In this podcast, join a Graphic Designer and a Packaging Engineer to hear practical tips and inspiration from two very different alumni who found themselves relocating from campus to Chicago after graduation.
Kelsey Tupper graduated from Michigan State University in 2013 with a BFA in Graphic Design & Photography and a Minor in Art History & Visual Culture. She is a passionate, empathetic and dedicated designer, with a sharp eye, quick tongue, and healthy sense of humor. She is a strong supporter of “design for good”, especially working with non-profits that advocate for under-served and underrepresented communities. Her specialties are: graphic design, collaboration, branding, print design, typography, photography, art history
Colleen Anthes graduated from Michigan State in 2015 with a B.S. in Packaging. During her time at Michigan State, she worked as a student executive within the Professional Development & Personal Enrichment group at the MSU Alumni Association, where she executed alumni engagement efforts and curated online content. She also conducted research on bio-based flexible materials for the School of Packaging. Upon graduating, she moved to White Plains, NY to start working for PepsiCo as a Packaging Engineer. She has since moved to Chicago and currently works on cost savings and productivity initiatives for the Nutrition group, working for beverages brands such as Gatorade, Tropicana and Naked Juice. She enjoyed balancing her time between the office and traveling around the country to different bottling facilities. Despite growing up in small-town St. Johns, MI, she’s loving big-city Chicago life. Outside of work, you can find her cheering on MSU from Chicago Spartan bars or playing with her cat, Pacey.
