GET TO KNOW ME!
My name is Adrian Cunningham, and I am a recent Iowa State University graduate with a degree in two of my passions; advertising and psychology. I feel these majors work well together because of my fascination for understanding how the human mind works. Psychology helps me get a handle as to why people think the way they do, and advertising gives me an outlet to put these teachings into play.
I would describe myself as a person that enjoys a good work/life balance. I like having some structure to my life, but I also don't take myself too seriously. In my free time, I enjoy listening to 70s and 80s music, spending time with my friends and family, and traveling when I am able to. Some of my favorite places I have been to include the Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountain National Park, the Bahamas, and Hawaii. The world has a lot to offer and I want to explore as much of it as I can.
Currently, I am working as an HR Marketing/Recruitment intern at a supply chain company called Worldwide Logistics in Urbandale, Iowa. I started at the beginning of April in 2022. This is the first time the company has hired someone for this position, and my work for them includes monitoring and posting on job boards, creating and posting social media content on outlets such as LinkedIn and Facebook, and creating an official company Instagram. This is work I am passionate about and find to be extremely enjoyable.
I specifically love the design aspect of advertising, and that is what I have showcased on this website. My goals now that I have graduated are to find a full-time job in the creative department of an advertising agency or to continue my work in Human Resources. Feel free to have a look at some of my advertising campaign ideas and classwork under the "work samples" tab as well as social media posts and concepts I have produced for my internship under the "internship" tab. Hope you enjoy!
