TIFFANY-LAI

CARNEGIE MELLON UNIVERSITY

Tiffany is currently completing a BFA in Communications Design in the School of Design. She has always had a passion for helping others, and she found a creative outlet for that passion when she discovered design and its potential. Tiffany is not only drawn by the power of visual communication but is most interested in exploring the service and user research aspects of design. A curious learner, she enjoys picking up new skills and challenging herself. Tiffany is fascinated by the fine details of typography; she often practices handlettering and calligraphy as a form of creative expression and to better understand the details. In her spare time, she fills her happy thoughts jar and watches movies.
