KENNESAW STATE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF ART & DESIGN

Hi, I’m Abigail. I’ve known since early middle school (when I created my first, albeit atrocious, logo and business card) that I wanted to be a freelance artist and fill my time with unique projects. It wasn’t until years later that I was introduced to the digital arts and fell in love with graphic design. After eight years of classes, I just graduated, debt-free, with a Graphic Communications degree. During the past three years, I’ve been balancing a part-time design/photography job with part-time freelancing. I don’t know exactly where I want to end up with my career, but I know that I am wholeheartedly addicted to the creative problem solving and producing beautiful content for clients.
