The Refashion Interns: Meet the Wolf Pack

Refashion - Interns - Fashion Tech

Refashion is growing and so is our team! We just completed our first killer intern orientation to begin developing the team into power entrepreneurs. We hosted interactive workshops that were led by some of San Diego’s most talented entrepreneurs – no kidding. Session topics ranged from social media, public relations, the Lean Startup Methodology, email marketing, and even an intro to WordPress.

Before our orientation, the new Refashion family was asked to pen a vivid illustration of their perfect day five years from now. Where are you living, what are you doing, how are you being, who are you with, what do you see?? Then after, what actions do you need to begin taking now to make that possible? We highly recommended this exercise to help build a bond and accountability within the team.

Already two peas in a pod, Marconi and Kim interviewed each other so we can all get to know them for real.

And so without further adieu, we’d like for everyone to meet the interns!

Hi, I’m Marconi Torres…

Marconi Torres - Refashion Intern

I’ve lived in San Diego my whole life, and I go to SDSU, where I’m on the third year of my journey to get a BA in Graphic Design. I’ve been interested in computer graphics since high school and I’ve recently taken my interest and skill to the next level by working with Refashion.

Hobbies & Passions

My professional passion has always been in the field of Art, whether it be graphic design or studio art. However, outside of school and work, my passion is Electronic Dance Music. I usually wake up listening to it in the mornings and it causes me to be in my most creative state when designing.

What I like to do for fun?

I like to expand my design portfolio in my spare time, go to electronic music events, and hang around different places in San Diego to see what the city has to offer. My city has never let me down.

Favorite food

My favorite food has always been Mexican food since that’s what I grew up with my whole life. However, I’d be lying if I said I would turn down an Italian dish.

Favorite music

If it wasn’t clear before, I’m really into electronic dance music. I feel like it’s the only music genre that has genres within it that fit most, if not all situations in life. Therefore, you could listen to it anytime, anywhere.

Why did you join Refashion?

What caught my attention about Refashion was the way in which their media graphics they put out reminded me of my style of geometric shape incorporation. Their presentation caught my attention, and their personalities and business itself motivated me to join.

What’s your role in Refashion?

My roles at Refashion vary, but my main role is that of a designer. This includes working on the branding of Refashion. This encompasses a lot of the graphics used in their media, & my goal is to provide captivating graphics that catch the viewer’s attention and through those graphics, link them to valuable information from innovative thinkers like themselves.

How does Refashion stand out to you?

Refashion is innovative in the way in which it offers a vast array of knowledge that becomes accessible to individuals that might not have come across the same information through other sources. The direct, personal interviews and information provided make Refashion unique and effective.

What are you most excited about for Refashion?

I’m most excited to design graphics for Refashion and to see how, with the Intern team’s contributions, it grows over time. It’s very rewarding to be able to successfully contribute to not only the viewer’s growth but also Refashion’s growth.

These two are the REAL DEAL. Already diving into all areas of the business and pushing themselves everyday standing from the commitment to help you succeed and live the life you love.
