5 Surprising Perks of Resting Nice Face – When the term “resting bitch face” had its cultural moment, I laughed along. But could never really relate, because I have always had the opposite problem: Resting Nice Face (RNF).

Kristen has been my Graphic Design Intern for the past few months and she never ceases to amaze me! She started with us at Simply Green Solutions with a slight background in the Adobe Creative Suite and I am very happy to report that she has mastered key elements to Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe InDesign. With her help we have produced compelling designs and lay outs for numerous Fortune 500 companies. One very notable project that Kristen handled from beginning to finish was a trade show booth backdrop. The backdrop was designed in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator mixing various elements created in vector and raster format. The final product was a 10′ tall by 10′ wide backdrop which was offset printed and used at numerous trade shows that our company has attended. The main project of her internship was the layout, design, and graphic elements for a 24 page product catalog. This product catalog was handed out to thousands of our clients at trade shows across the nation. She utilized her skills in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe InDesign to complete a vector and raster catalog that show cased dozens of our products in a clean and easily communicated format. I have very high hopes for Kristen in the future. Her work ethic, positive attitude, and superior attention to detail makes her the perfect candidate at any company. Into the future I would love to work with Kristen again if possible.
