NC STATE COLLEGE OF DESIGN
Kennedy Liggett is a senior majoring in Graphic Design. She is passionate about helping others and designing purposeful work that creates a more inclusive world. She has always had a passion for helping others, but it wasn’t until she majored in graphic design that she realized she could use her creativity to make a positive impact on people’s lives. After graduation, Kennedy wants to combine her love for children with her passion for helping others by pursuing a career in inclusive design for children. She’s also been heavily influenced by illustration throughout her time at school and would like to become a children’s book illustrator on the side.
