Materials:  Preemie Onesies, Heat Transfer Vinyl, Vinyl Cutter, Heat Press

Description:  During my senior year of high school, I participated in 3 independent studies in advanced graphic design. My teacher and I brainstormed ideas for a project I could work on for the semester and came up with the idea of a service project that would give back to the NICU. We worked with the Women and Babies Hospital in Lancaster and made 300 onesies for the babies when they go home. I led the project and trained my peers on the vinyl cutter and heat press. I delivered the onesies to the hospital myself and saw the effect my work had on the families there, which changed my life.

While employed as a student worker for the Design, Media, and Technology Department at LVC, I suggested doing a project similar with other Digital Communications students. The department loved the idea and connected us to UPMC Pinnacle NICU in Harrisburg. I worked with the DigiVal club to communicate with the hospital, and my primary role in this project was to train other students on the vinyl cutter and heat press, as well as make the onesies.

A Little About Me

Hi! I am Alyssa Matheus, an aspiring graphic designer currently studying at Lebanon Valley College. I will graduate in 2022 with a Bachelor of Science in Digital Communications with a concentration in design. My curriculum has included many different courses in six concentrations: design, videography, programming, communications, user experience, and business technology. Having experience in each of these concentrations has shaped me into a well-rounded storyteller and artist.
