CMCI students develop their portfolios through classes, clubs, student media, internships and personal projects. Since our college’s founding, we’ve collected some of their best creative work in our Student Work Gallery, which includes award-winning ad campaigns, photojournalism, graphic design work and data visualizations.

Our fall issue of CMCI Now magazine celebrates this creative work and features stories of CMCI students and recent alumni who've put their skills and knowledge to use beyond the classroom––from the entrepreneurial teams behind Boulder Media House and Ferment, to the innovative students who developed new tools for firefighters and leveraged a class project into an advertising career. Check out the latest student stories below!

More Than a Starter

Short for fermentation, the small-scale bakery, Ferment, is a start-up enterprise that Andre Gruber, an engineering major, and Rafaelo Infante, a strategic communication major, launched in the spring while most of the state was shut down.

Guiding Lights

In the summer of 2017, Joel Holton was one of nearly 600 personnel fighting the Keystone Fire, from which he narrowly escaped. A few years later––as a senior studying information science––he teamed up with classmates to develop new navigation aids with the needs of wildland firefighters in mind.

Raising the Roof

When he and his co-founders launched Boulder Media House, Jeremy Elder (CritMedia’20) was still a full-time student. Today, the young crew of CU graduates behind the boutique production company has created content for businesses from luxury expedition vehicles to high-end fashion, and they continue to elevate their game.

Red RovR, Red RovR...Send the Plan Book Over

What’s cooler than getting a good grade on an assignment? For Nicole Cattin (StratComm’20), it was a paid internship her senior year and the opportunity to see her work featured in stores.
