Take Five: Christiane Coubertier
By Jonathan Vatner
FIT gave her all the skills she needed
“Everything we did in school is exactly what we do in my job. It’s kind of crazy how very well prepared I was.”
Majors: Visual Presentation and Exhibition Design BFA, Interior Design AAS Job: Design coordinator at BMF, an agency that produces experiential events for Marriott, Dell, Uniqlo, Pantone, and others. She was an intern on the strategy team at BMF this spring, developing concepts for events. When her supervisors discovered that she was proficient in Photoshop and the 3D modeling program SketchUp, they moved her to the design team, which is in charge of fleshing out event concepts into floorplans and product specifications, down to the glassware. She was hired at the end of her internship.
