Notable alumni: Daniel McKewen (Fine Arts, 2005)

Daniel McKewen is the owner and founder of Seagull Bags, a custom courier bag company known for durability, design and custom embroidery. McKewen says there are two types of businesses in the courier bag space: major brands, which mass-produce, and one- or two-person “basement companies.” Seagull fits in between, big enough to produce at some volume, but still small enough to be flexible and individual.
