Nicole Kish is a self-proclaimed maximalist, color enthusiast, and pattern fanatic who faithfully believes straight lines should always be drawn with a ruler and paper should always be cut with an X-ACTO knife. A senior Graphic and Interactive Design major, also pursuing a minor in Content Creation, Nicole loves to combine visuals, words, and concepts to create dynamic projects that bridge the gap between brands and their audiences. Using her skills in typography, web design, animation, art direction, and copywriting, Nicole always strives to create work that provokes communication. Her experiences in working at a large ad agency and a small design studio have continued to inspire Nicole’s desire to create work that gets conversations flowing.

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

2020 emphasized for me how design doesn’t slow down. No matter the twists and turns thrown at designers, we always find a way to create visuals that c onnect our audiences, and have an impact on them. Whether they are signs of protest or Instagram posts thanking essential workers, even the smallest piece of design can have a huge impact.
