Alice Fang (BDes ’21) a senior specializing in Communication Design at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Design, has been named a 2021-2022 Fellow with the New York Times. Narrowed down from over 3000 applications, this group represents the third class of New York Times Fellows.
Fang will be using her design expertise as a member of the Digital News Design desk for a year, working with designers, editors, reporters, and developers in building multimedia interactive stories.
“I’m super grateful and excited for this fellowship, and I hope that it leads me to future opportunities to collaborate on really interesting and engaging projects related to journalism, media and storytelling,” said Fang.
For Fang, learning design at Carnegie Mellon University allowed her to learn using new tools and technologies, while encouraging collaboration with students and faculty beyond the School of Design.
“I also think my own interests and practice were really formed by the combination of the design studios that I took, and the research and writing I was doing outside of that,” added Fang.
“Design as a discipline is super broad,” said Fang. “Design at CMU asks you to think systemically about big issues, in a really collaborative studio environment.”
