THE MODERN COLLEGE OF DESIGN

Hannah Peterson is a second-year Applied Business in Design student (and an INFJ-T). In addition to being passionate about web design, print and packaging, branding, and UI/UX, she is also invested in crafting intentional and user-driven creative solutions. Her design journey started at the Delaware Area Career Center, which led her to BPA, SkillsUSA, and eventually The Modern College of Design. In college, she has participated in Student Senate, worked with the Dayton BBB and Dragonfly Editorial, and absorbed as much design knowledge as possible. Currently, she is Media Director for the school’s NSAC team. Hannah is interested in all aspects of a project, whether that be research, brainstorming, or iterating. Outside the design world, she loves visiting the ocean, tracking her music listening habits, playing the piano by ear, and learning about amusement park history.

HAVE THE CHALLENGES OF 2020 CHANGED HOW YOU THINK ABOUT GRAPHIC DESIGN AND DESIGNERS?

2020 has reinforced the pivotal roles that conscious marketing and design play in an ethical society. Designers have the power to influence public opinion, drive change, and make genuine connections with users/consumers — it’s an important responsibility.
