College for Creative Studies: Photography
Micaela Ruiz graduated at the top of her class; she was chosen as the Photography department’s senior select and received a Nike Key Scholarship. Her successes at CCS, combined with a diverse portfolio of projects, are what landed her a full-time position at Converse.
“It’s been an amazing experience. I’ve gotten to work on some really fun, crazy stuff,” said Ruiz.
Ruiz is a product photographer for the creative services team in Converse’s Brand Design department. Her photos have appeared on company websites and billboards, were used on displays at Foot Locker stores and are featured in several magazines, including Nylon and Rolling Stone.
