Evan Litvak (Interaction Design 2014) is set to graduate from CCA this year, and the idea of delving into the workforce is far from the daunting task most people his age face.
As one of CCA’s inaugural IxD students, Litvak scored an internship with Facebook, which has since secured him a career with the social media giant.
From Fine Arts to Technology
“I came into CCA as a Ceramics major and had been doing fine arts all my life,” Litvak explained. “I had a little interest in computers and technology, but mostly recreationally -- I’d play videogames and surf the Web all the time.
“At the end of my first semester at CCA, I was in the dorms in Oakland and I saw a poster for the first Intro to IxD class ever. It had prompts all over it, with one of them saying, ‘Who’s going to create the future social network?’ and I thought, ‘Why not me?’”
