At Harrington, students often take their work out of the classroom and into the real world to gain experience before graduation. A great example of this that I recently came across is the partnership of several Communication Design students, Evan Scronce, Christina Varallo and Eric Grimes, who joined together to form Diversi, a design firm they created with the encouragement and help of their instructor, Jaime Sandoval. 

As Evan explained, “Diversi means ‘different’. We’ve created a design company that creates solid designs and branding that can transform a brand into a successful and memorable entity. We are a company that can do just about anything, and if we’re not familiar with what you are looking for, we will learn and figure out how to complete it.”

Recently Evan, Christina and Eric worked on a website and brand identity for a Floral Stylist. After working through several concepts for the identity, as well as addressing real-life challenges of finding the correct team of people with the knowledge and skill set to execute the complicated project, the team successfully completed the project and launched it for their client.


As Evan stated, “We came across some challenges we had never encountered before. However, drawing on what we were taught at Harrington, we did research to find out ways to create exactly what the client was asking for. There are so many obstacles that you have to be prepared for in this industry, and Eric, Christina and I have learned this in a short year of working together. It’s important to never stop learning, and to learn from the teachers at Harrington as they have helped us transition what we learn from school work into real world experience.”
