Emily Prestridge recently completed her BFA in Graphic Design. She’s a lover of music and famous for giving high fives. Growing up in a small, Southern town has spiked her thirst for the unknown. Her intrinsic curiosity spreads to all areas of life including her love for people. Her favorite part of the design process is the initial brainstorming when a spark of creativity can lead to ingenuity. In the near future, she plans to expand her knowledge in motion graphics and illustration as an Art Director. She hopes she can influence younger designers to explore new ideas and face challenges with excitement and passion.
