Kassidy Benson is a senior in the Graphic Design BFA program at Utah Valley University. She is a curious designer with a particular interest in the experimental and peculiar. Her insatiable curiosity keeps her designing things that challenge her skill and thought processes. Through her time in school, she has found a great appreciation for design that challenges people to think and grow. She is always willing to try something new and learn from the process. Outside of design, she loves spending time with her husband, going hiking, and having in-depth conversations with her two dogs, Dax and Fluffy.
