Women's History Month 2023: Celebrating Our WTS Stories

Symbolizing WTS International: Sarah Castillo
Sarah Castillo worked as an intern for WTS International in the spring of 2022. She recently graduated with a degree in Graphic Design from George Mason University. Her senior project was titled In the Meadow, designing a brand concept for a fictional music festival. For Women’s History Month 2023, WTS asked Sarah to produce original artwork to celebrate the month – you’ll see this in our emails, featured on our social media, and soon to be hanging in the WTS International headquarters office! Sarah’s wrote about this work, “This work contains a panel of diverse women showcasing different roles in transportation. The diversity is symbolized diversity by showcasing the characters themselves in a variety of monochrome WTS colors. This piece holds the same values WTS stands for and represents what International Women's History Month stands for: A hardworking, vibrant group of the population: women!”
You can buy items with Sarah's work at the WTS ProShop.
