Introducing Gabrielle Nelson, Graphic Design Intern

Hi, I’m Gabrielle, and for the past twenty-two years I have been designing my way through life. From my first finger paintings to the websites I have recently coded, the arts have always been my area of interest. Not only is being creative a hereditary trait, it is also my dream job.

I started out painting and drawing at a very young age before I became obsessed with writing at the age of nine. Writing continued being a hobby for me in addition to reading, watching movies, listening to music, and playing sports. It was not until high school that I developed an idea of what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.

With an interest in so many things such as photography, networking, writing and drawing, picking a career was quite challenging. There were so many things I wanted to focus on. However, when I finally sat down and thought about it, I realized that the field of advertising really encompassed everything I wanted to do. I also found a great passion for graphic design through making that choice and I believe that is what got me here today.

Graduating from Indiana University is one of my biggest life accomplishments because of how fulfilling my experience was. Not only did I leave college a different person, but I also left with a great amount of knowledge that I do not think I could have ever picked up from somewhere else. I also believe it has been the reason for countless other accomplishments that have occurred recently, such as the forming of my life plan and receiving an offer to intern with Code Together this summer.

Since I am currently planning my future now, I am not too certain what I will be doing after summer. However, I do know that I will continue immersing myself in the world of design and finding new ways to be creative.

Gabrielle has been interning with Code Together for three weeks doing graphic design work. We haven’t made her work live yet, but we think you’ll like what you see when it’s done!

Treaty vs. Google Drive—So What’s the Difference?

Since we rolled out the beta version of Treaty two weeks ago, we’ve already signed up a number of testers and have received some great feedback so far. But one question that has come up a few times is the difference between Treaty and Google Drive (previously known as Google Docs). After all, they both allow you to share and edit text and documents. However, as I touched on in last week’s post, Treaty integrates directly with our customers’ web applications, so that the application’s users don’t have to leave to work on their documents.
