MORGAN-ELROD

CORNISH COLLEGE OF THE ARTS

Morgan will graduate this spring with a BFA in Design. She is at the top of her class, and has received many merit and endowed scholarships. Throughout her studies, Morgan has been exposed to a wide variety of design tools and thinking. Incorporating these tools, and both analog and digital processes, has led her to becoming an avid screen printer. From screen printed music posters to stuffed animals, her design practice strives to bring illustration and design to life with vivid colors. During her last semester at Cornish, Morgan looks forward to leading the college’s new student AIGA chapter as President. Outside of school, Morgan volunteers as a studio moderator at a community screen print studio. Upon graduation, she hopes to continue being involved in her screen print community, find a visual design/product and packaging job, and open her own studio someday.
