Graphic Design evolves design fundamentals into powerful tools for communication, problem-solving, and creative strategizing.
I’ve begun to see a pattern in my work where the design style, layout, theme, and objective may vary greatly across projects, but the overall focus is still on humanity. I see myself as a visual communicator, but I also see myself as an emotional and empathetic being, and I think that those things very much go hand-in-hand with design. My intention is always to reach people on an emotional level while communicating with them in a thoughtful way. One of the most beautiful things about design is that we are all human, and we can all connect with it – no matter who we are or where we come from. This is why I love what I do!
What is your most memorable
experience at KCAD?
It’s difficult to sum up my journey in one experience, but I think my favorite moments were simply my interactions with students, staff, faculty, and friends (now lifelong friends) that I’ve come across in the four years I’ve been at KCAD. I loved having a job on campus (I’ve actually had three!) because it gave me the opportunity meet a lot of really amazing and interesting people. To sum it up, there were a lot of coffee runs, homework parties, late nights, and library hangs, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
