What makes me stoked?

Hi, I'm Taryn Veldusea! I am a recent graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Communication with a concentration in Graphic Communication Management. I am originally from Yucaipa, California, a small town between L.A. and Palm Springs. I am very passionate about design and marketing. I have been drawing, sketching, and illustrating since I was young. I found my niche in digital marketing because it combines my love for communication and creativity. When I'm not designing, I'm often outside taking landscape photos or photos of my friends and family. I've also always loved sports, growing up watching my favorites: the Los Angeles Angels (although, to me, they will always be the Anaheim Angels) and the Denver Broncos. 

Core Values

 

Happiness

Humor

Living life to the best of my ability, trying my best to look on the bright side. Taking each opportunity to smile and stay positive. 

Doing my best to make others laugh and valuing my humility, taking everything with a grain of salt.

Hard Work

Creating opportunities to personally develop and add value to any situation or job. Being resilient and adaptable.

Honesty

Always speaking my mind to improve relationships and build trust. Admitting to mistakes and learning from them to move forward.

Design

Taking inspiration from the merchandise, the people, and the views, I created Colorado inspired designs.

Photos

Colorado is beautiful. Hiking through the Rockies, whitewater rafting, and so many animal sightings.

Video

A personal video, stitched from all of the footage I took over the course of the two weeks. A fun way to show what we did!

Designing, Marketing,
and Selling.

I am highly organized and detail-oriented, doing whatever it takes to get the job done. I also love people and working with others, quickly learning and easily adapting to situations presented. I am from the Inland Empire, Southern California looking forward to finding a career in the marketing & advertising industry. I have experience in graphic design, sales and marketing, branding, photography, and social media. I also have extensive knowledge in Adobe Creative Suite Applications: Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator and InDesign.

 

My time at California Polytechnic State University of San Luis Obispo as a Graphic Communication Major has taught me hands on design, photography, web, printing and management skills which I hope to bring to my career. I have been a freelance designer since 2017, Design and Marketing Intern for the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce, as well as Sales Manager for University Graphic Systems at Cal Poly, all of which I have learned a valuable variety of skills. In my current position, as Sales Manager, I've learned how being personable and easy to talk to is so important when talking with clients and that is something I do very well. Building relationships and fostering great communication is something I strive for, especially as a manager.

Design

Personal Work

In my free time, you'll often find me designing and creating graphics for my family and friends, as well as myself.

Logos

As a freelance designer, I have created many logos for clients from truck transport companies to active clothing.

As a Graphic Communication major, many class projects have prepared and challenged me for life after college.

Projects

While interning and working at many companies, I was given many challenging projects to complete.

Photography

Landscape Photos

With my love of nature and being outdoors, landscape photography has always been my favorite. The natural beauty of so many places, let the photos speak for themselves.

Since I've been given a camera, I have loved taking photos of my friends and family. People give a photo so much life and I absolutely love to catch them being natural and candid.

Candid Portraits

My Favorite Photos

Some of my most random subjects have been my favorite photos. A lot of these I just find interesting and fun. They may not be your favorite photos, but they are mine.
