Note: This story first appeared on the School of Art’s website.
The UT Torchbearer online magazine recently did a story on some interesting School of Art alumni. Here’s a brief overview of what they covered.
School of Art graduate (2012), Simon Sok, was hired on with the Google Creative Lab Five. It is a highly competitive paid internship, where a team of five people work together to create and innovate. According to Graphic Design professor, Sarah Lowe, Sok is the youngest person ever to be part of the team. He is almost done with his year at Google, and he is in a great position to handpick where he wants to work next.
Another SoA grad (2005), Jeff Baxter, works with Sok in the Google Creative Labs. Another 2005 graduate, Paul Schlacter, came to GCL with Baxter, but now he works at Yahoo as a mobile product developer. To read the entire article from the Torchbearer, just click here: Tech Design, and Vols.
