Hi! I’m Caitlin Morris and I’m a junior studying Marketing with certificates in Digital Studies and Computer Science. I’ve always loved the outdoors and being creative, so I decided to combine those interests into a passion project. In September of 2019 I started designing and producing resin jewelry with pressed flowers, and in January I was able to launch an Etsy shop called cait creates (@createsxcait) which features this jewelry and other botanical accent pieces. Two Digital Studies courses in particular, Marketing 355 (Marketing in a Digital Age) and Life Sciences Communication 450 (Documentary Photography for the Sciences) greatly helped me realize my dream of owning a small business. In MKT355, students create a complete Digital Marketing Plan over the course of the semester. Through this project, I was able to refine my brand, messaging, and complete great exercises like learning more about how potential customers interact with my Etsy through building a user test. LSC450 helped me develop my photography skills, a key aspect of marketing my products. My product photography has been greatly improved by the key concepts we learned in the course! You can check out my shop at the link in the bio and thank you to Digital Studies for giving me the confidence to make this shop a reality!
