ART INSTITUTE OF TAMPA BFA IN GRAPHIC DESIGN

Katy Brooks is a recent transplant to the Tampa area, as she spent the first 22 years of life in the Chicago suburbs. She will graduate this fall with a BFA in Graphic Design. Her passion for design emerged from several things including: a love of the fine arts that began in childhood, crafty hobbies that she picked up along the way, and a fascination for the detail brought into every project by the Disney Imagineers. She always begins her designs on paper, researching the client and problem, before proceeding to find a solution. Her studies at the Art Institute of Tampa have allowed her to work in many varied areas of design from packaging and publication to brand strategy and web design. Katy looks forward to the upcoming challenges of completing an internship and finalizing her portfolio as she prepares to step out into the field of design.
