RINGLING COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN
Tyler is a senior Graphic Design student. After growing up surrounding himself in creative projects, Tyler knew he wanted to pursue a career in art. It took him a while to settle into the right major but once he landed on Graphic Design, he found his home. Currently working at Ringling’s Design Center, Tyler enjoys focusing on simple and modern solutions to design problems, and loves a good critique session. He believes great design communicates the message in a clean and efficient way. After interning at Marvel Entertainment this past summer, Tyler is eager to graduate and get back to the bustling design industry that NYC provides.
