Megan Monroe is a senior studying Graphic Design and Art History. While Megan has expressed a love for art for as long as she can remember, her passion for graphic design didn’t flourish until her senior year of high school. Ever since then, she’s grown increasingly involved in all forms of design, from print to motion to product design. An avid learner, Megan aims to create design that inspires and helps others. She finds that she is happiest when she is inspired, and hopes to constantly seek out inspiration no matter where she ends up after graduating in May. When Megan isn’t designing, you can find her swimming in the ocean, painting, or scouting out funky hats to add to her growing collection.

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

Design is basically problem-solving through creative solutions. I think it’s safe to say we’ve faced a number of problems in 2020, and it’s encouraging to see designers using their voice and talent to solve these problems. It’s more important now than ever before for designers to use their gifts to educate and communicate in a way that encourages others to respect one another, spread love, and stay healthy.
