DREXEL UNIVERSITY

Tracy is a senior in Graphic Design, minoring in Fine Arts and Marketing. She was drawn to Graphic Design after joining an online forum and seeing hundreds of inspiring works of art made by self-taught designers. Being her curious self, she decided to learn and never look back. Her design sensibilities are driven by a desire to connect, start conversations, and foster new ideas. She constantly looks at design problems through multiple lenses to find the most appropriate solution. Her co-op at Exit Design taught her to evaluate the functional aspect of design at the same level as the aesthetic and create design that eases navigation. When not designing, she enjoys trying new dessert recipes and swimming during the warmer months.
