Hey there, my name is Claire Patterson!
I’m a BA Communication and Digital Publishing student at Simon Fraser University. Throughout my degree, I have spent time designing with brands and working to cultivate communities through communication work. Through time spent working with a tech start-up, non-profit, digital magazine, and online journal during my undergrad career, I have developed a passion for making meaningful work. I carry the belief that effective communication work has the power to influence public opinion and create change, and I aspire to do just that. This website acts as a portfolio for some of the work I have created throughout my undergrad career including blog posts, research papers, opinion pieces, multimedia work, and a marketing portfolio.
Currently, I have finished up a semester studying at the University of Amsterdam’s Communication Science program. My time spent abroad inspired a passion of language in me and I have accepted a co-op in Barcelona where I intend to learn Spanish and become integrated into the culture! On spare time I am working with SFU’s Young Women in Business WISE program which is focusing on the concept of coding and investing. The program holds workshops to equip young women with the hard skills they need to become successful in the industry!
