RINGLING COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN
Leslie Adelaide Carol is a senior graphic designer at Ringling College of Art and Design. She was inspired at a young age by her artistically inclined older cousins to draw and paint. At the age of twelve, she moved to the US and began taking art courses in middle school which eventually led her to discover her love of graphic design. Creating visual pieces that communicate and inspire meaningful ideas is a key driving force behind Leslie’s designs. She aims to explore as many avenues and mediums as possible but always has a soft spot for book arts and publishing. Having learned so much while working at varied companies such as Miles Partnership, Warner Brothers and Solstice Architects, Leslie is excited and hungry for more. She would also like to take this opportunity to thank her amazing professors for getting her through the past 3 years not only of school, but of life.
