BALL STATE UNIVERSITY

Mariah Drake is a senior pursuing her BFA in Visual Communications and minoring. She is currently a Team Leader at a student-led design studio. Her passion for art started at a young age and has flourished into what it is today. She enjoys graphic design because it allows her to be a creative problem-solver and transform her ideas into visual solutions. When Mariah is not working on design projects, you can find her listening to music, drinking gallons and gallons of coffee, playing card games, or riding her bike. Mariah has recently become a bicycle enthusiast after joining the staff at a local bike shop.
