Past Alumni Spotlights

Ellison DewEllison Dew

Ellison Dew of Greenville, SC graduated from Clemson spring of 2017 as a Graphic Communications major and Brand Communications minor. As a student at the Erwin Center, one of her many projects was to rebrand the Erwin Center in Alicia Littleton's Digital Analytics and Brand course. Her group was then given the opportunity to pitch their creative ideas to the Erwin Center board members which is one of her most memorable experiences. She is currently living in Atlanta, GA working with Zenith Media, under Publicis Media, as the assistant media planner. Here she works on digital activation/investment for the Gulf States Toyota.

"I was always interested in advertising and could see myself pursuing a career in it. Anyone who is thinking about advertising or working in media should definitely take the Erwin Center classes and also consider minoring in Brand Communications."


KinleyMeyerKinley Meyer

Kinley Meyer, a recent 2017 graduate, received her major in Marketing and minored in Communication Studies during her time at Clemson. Her last semester she was a student in Andy Mendelsohn's Brand Creation and Communications course along with Roger Beasley's Brand Communications and Media course. In Andy's class, she had the opportunity to present her ideas to Spinx about how they could attract college students to their stores. This project was something that she was able to talk about during interviews and she believes it to be incredibly relevant to jobs she was applying for, and what she is currently doing today. As a native of The Woodlands, TX she is currently living in Atlanta, GA working at Newell Brands as the Assistant Manager of Marketing Operations. Here she supports all of the Writing Brand Development for businesses such as Sharpie, Paper Mate, Expo, and Elmer's, being able to contribute to each innovation taking place throughout the writing division for multiple brands.

"The Erwin Center classes offered an interesting mix of topics that I found to be more interesting than most of the more general Marketing and Communications courses that Clemson offers. These classes are taught by instructors that have had careers and real experience in the topics which ensures all content is relevant and helpful."
