COLUMBUS COLLEGE OF ART & DESIGN (CCAD)

Madison Moroi is a senior studying Advertising & Graphic Design with a minor in copywriting. Unlike many art students, Madison’s love of art and design emerged at a later age. She graduated from New Albany High School and went on to attend Penn State, playing soccer and studying pre-med. When forced to quit soccer due to health reasons, she discovered a passion for the arts. Madison sat in on two classes at CCAD and fell in love with the college’s environment and culture. Since transferring, Madison has become an accomplished interdisciplinary designer with skills in art direction, animation, app design, illustration, photography, typography, videography, and web design. She has had three internships, competed in Adobe AAF’s 2020 National Student Advertising Competition, and secured a co-op for her final semester in New York. At 23, Madison is in the process of opening an international design business.

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

It has opened my eyes to new possibilities and inspiration. It has shown me how connected our community truly is. Seeing the artwork downtown related to the protests to looking at posters and digital posts on social media about the pandemic and the presidential election, I think our voice has never been more amplified. It inspires me to create more art.
