KANSAS CITY ART INSTITUTE

Multi-disciplinary artist Aimee Harting, a senior in Graphic Design at Kansas City Art Institute, grew up in a creative family and has been making from a young age. She flows back and forth between analog and digital and likes to weave hand-done elements into her designs. She takes an unconventional approach to her work by incorporating drawing, painting, and photography. Research is key to her process and she uses it as a diving off point for all projects. After graduation, she hopes to take her fearless creative style to a small agency where she can work on branding and design solutions for a variety of clients.
