VIRGINIA TECH SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS

Mia is graduating this spring with a BFA in Graphic Design and over the past four years has found that her design interests and abilities range from branding and editorial design to web and UI/UX design. After a whirlwind summer in San Francisco, she has also become seasoned in both visual storytelling and human-centered design due to the experience gained from working alongside a variety of disciplines during her time as the visual design intern at frog. She is always open to taking risks and actively seeks to learn new things and receive quality music suggestions. Exposure to new viewpoints and ways of working is what she craves most in a design environment. Moving forward, she hopes to continue to fuel her desire to create, learn, make an impact, and expand her music library.
