Oberlin alum


My name is Tekikki Walker. I am an Oberlin alum of 2012. I graduated with a BFA in Visual Arts. Recently, I have graduated from the 2D Design program at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. I have returned to audit a class and to help my mentor with a few things. I'll be here for a few months. However, I am in great need of monetary sustenance for this time period.

I can help with any of your graphic design projects, such as designing flyers/posters, stationery, bookmarks, or whatever you truly need. I also have experience in experimental music production and can help if you need something along those lines. But, I truly love to organize things, house-sit, cat-sit, or dog-sit. I have done a number of those jobs during my time as a student at Oberlin and at Cranbrook.

Please feel free to email me at tekikkiwalker@gmail.com for additional information :)

Thank you so much,
