Noah is a transfer student who’s made the most of his time at UArts. He was one of two UArts Graphic Design majors chosen to be featured in Graphic Design USA magazine’s “2018 Students to Watch” issue. While at UArts, he’s had a few internships and worked on some great projects including Howler Magazine, Bloomberg’s Annual Report on Autonomous Vehicles, and The Winter Antiques Show.
Noah had some good reasons for picking UArts. “I didn’t want to live in New York,” he says. “And I loved the faculty/student ratio and how the faculty took care of their students.”
His advice to a new student coming to UArts: “Do what I did. Get out there. Get out of the dorm. Make friends in other departments. I hang out a lot with Photography and Illustration majors. I like the Illustrations majors because they understand what I do.”
His keys to getting into the Philly culture? “Talk to your classmates. Explore the city. Get into every nook and cranny you can find.”
Noah, whose heritage is both Filipino and Polish, relaxes by skateboarding and cooking. “I love to cook. It is one of my other passions. I cook a Pansit, a traditional Philippine dish similar to pad thai. And a lot of other Philippine dishes. Also, Polish galumpkis.”
