HARTFORD ART SCHOOL,
UNIVERSITY OF HARTFORD

Claudia Geyer is a fourth year Graphic Design BFA student who expects to graduate in Spring 2020. Though Claudia didn’t take art classes before college, she developed a passion for art during high school by teaching herself how to draw and paint. From then on there was no doubt in her mind that she wanted to be in the creative field. After taking a summer course at NYIT, she fell in love with the world of design and wanted to be a part of it. Claudia says: ‘Designing provides opportunities to challenge myself, which I always strive for. I am passionate about all fields of design; however, my personal favorites are brand identity, packaging, and advertising. Design is much more than making something look good. Design is a powerful tool used to create long term solutions to real-world problems. I would not be the designer I am today without my amazing professors. They have guided and inspired me for the past three years and made me truly appreciate the art of design.”
