Pratt Institute Alumna, BFA in Illustration, 2010
Annie Beth Ericsson, a former Peer to Peer counselor, graduated Pratt last May with a BFA in Illustration. Always fixed on pursuing a career in Children’s Books, she left Pratt already with a job at the Penguin Young Readers Group, where she is a Junior Design Assistant.
Annie helped to start a lot of the programs that Peer to Peer continues today, like Fresh Meet and the Networking Workshop. She also created and organized Pratt’s first annual Professional Organizations Fair last year. Her list of achievements while she was at Pratt goes on--as a student, Annie had already illustrated two published board books for Starbright Books Publishing Company. All of us at Peer to Peer and Career Services knew that Annie’s achievements would only grow after Pratt, and now she has two book design assignments at Penguin. Congratulations, Annie!
