STACEY-DANDELET

RINGLING COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN

Stacey D’Andelet is a senior graphic designer at Ringling College of Art and Design. She is interested in solving branding/identity design problems and enjoys working with a variety of visual styles, from illustration to vector graphics to collages. She has found a home in branding since she is most comfortable when faced with change and unpredictability, and when she can experiment freely. This willingness to take risks is something that she hopes to inspire in others. Just as important to her is developing fictional stories, which she is eager to devote more time to illustrating. These stories help her learn more about herself and her identity.
