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.

What makes me stoked?

Hi, I'm Taryn Veldusea! I am a senior at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo studying Graphic Communication and concentrating in Graphic Communication Management. I am originally from Yucaipa, California, a small town between L.A. and Palm Springs. I absolutely love design and photography, so in my free time you'll often see me outside, in nature, gathering inspiration for my designs and 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.
