WYATT-HOCKENSMITH

PENNSYLVANIA COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN

Wyatt Hockensmith is a senior Graphic Design Major. He first became interested in art when he took high school class hoping for an easy grade. He applied to art school and decided to become a graphic designer, having no clear idea what it was. Although he had a rough start, he couldn’t imagine his life without design now. Wyatt is constantly playing with the line between design and illustration. He is currently experimenting with font development and automotive illustration in his free time. He hopes to someday be able to combine his passion for graphic design with his love for the automotive industry. Wyatt is known at PCAD for giving 200% to every assignment, being humble, receptive to input and guidance, and a general pleasure to work with.
