Paul Windle

As a sophomore in 2007, Paul Windle decided he’d taken a wrong turn, figuratively, on the way to architecture class. So he changed course—literally—and walked directly to the Fine Arts Building to switch his major to graphic design. “I was thinking about how people get to draw these awesome, exciting graphics, and it’s their adult job. I wanted to do that, too.” As a freelance illustrator in New York City, Windle ’10 had work featured in The Atlantic, The New York Times, and GQ, among many other publications. He also has illustrated for companies like Adidas, NIKE, and ESPN and was named a 2012 ADC Young Gun, which recognizes outstanding achievement in communication arts for professionals age 30 or younger. These days, he lives in Los Angeles and is developing a career in storyboarding for cartoons. “The art department at UTA was so open that it taught me to follow my interests and develop my ideas,” he says. “I feel like all of my experiences at UTA and in New York have prepared me to push for this next step in my career.”
