"Love without fear, Dream without limits"
Hello, my name is Courtney Boyer. Originally from a small town in Oklahoma, I grew up always knowing that I wanted to live in a big city some day. After graduating high school, I began my search for higher education at a private university in Oklahoma City. There I pursued a double major in dance and marketing, hoping to one day combine the two. After a good 2 years I began to realize that the education I was receiving was not the right fit for me. I knew there had to be something more out there, and so, I began my search for the perfect university...in New York City of course.
After being accepted into the Design Management program at Parsons the New School for Design, I officially moved to Manhattan, and I’ve been living happily in the city ever since. While in school I have learned to take the innovative thinking process involved with design and combine it with the business world. This program allowed me the creative flexibility that I was previously lacking. Parsons has given me a very unique set of skills which can be applied to a wide range of job opportunities. I have studied advertising, marketing, business models and planning, information design, product design, branding, and, my personal favorite, the process of design research.
I recently graduated in December with a Bachelors of Business Administration in Design and Management. I am currently interning at D/T/E Studio, a creative agency in the heart of Chelsea. Here I am involved with the launch of a new online service. I help with market research, community outreach, usability testing, and beta testing. I really enjoy being involved in the design process and wish to continue to pursue these interests in the future.
