Ai Orange County graphic design alumni

Vasile Tiplea, who in 2006 earned a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design from The Art Institute of California—Orange County, was recently featured in an article published in "Voyage LA."

Within the article, Tiplea—the founder at Vabotu—talks about his experience as a student. "The first month in school, I landed my very first freelance design job designing DVD covers for a company called Electric Pictures," he said. "I remember I was so scared, as I did not want to disappoint the client. This was new to me. So, I went to my perspective drawing teacher and asked, 'Hey what would you do in my place if you had the chance to take on this freelance job?' He said to me, 'Vasile, if you fail, you will learn a-lot and it's a good thing. If you don't fail, you will learn a lot and it's a good thing.' It's just the push I needed to take on the job. So, I did."
