WICHITA, Kan. – Tasha Wentling joins Wichita-based Greteman Group after a successful yearlong internship and graduation from Wichita State University School of Art, Design and Creative Industries. Wentling loaded up her final semester to such an extent with coursework and special projects that she laughingly says she hasn’t slept more than four hours in four months.
“Tasha cares deeply about every project she works on and is not afraid to ask ‘Why?’ or ‘Why not?’ to get to a better solution for our clients,” says Meghan Wolfe, Greteman Group art director and Wentling’s supervisor. “It’s one thing to be skilled at design and making things look nice, but it’s something else entirely to design with purpose and to truly engage your target audience.”
Wentling will work on a variety of projects – website design, online contests, identity, branding, advertising, environmental graphics, direct mail, animation and video. She will serve both aviation and nonaviation clients.
“This position at Greteman Group represents my dream job,” says Wentling. “I look forward to the many adventures in design that I know lie ahead.”
During and before her years at Wichita State, Wentling won key awards for her graphic design and fine art photography from the Art History Awards co-sponsored by the Ulrich Museum of Art and WSU School of Art, Design and Creative Industries, American Institute of Graphic Arts Student Portfolio Forum, National Scholastic Press Association, the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, the Photographer’s Forum and the WSU Exposure Photography Competition. She also taught graphic design as an instructor at Mark Arts, introducing students ages 13 and up to the latest design software, and built up her own freelance design business.
“Tasha has shown the skillset of a professional while still being a student,” says Wolfe. “I can’t wait to see what she can accomplish on our team.”
