MILWAUKEE INSTITUTE OF ART & DESIGN
Currently in her 4th year at MIAD, Mallory thrives on developing innovative, creative solutions. Throughout her years studying design, Mallory has established a foundation for her creative process through the marrying of research, strategy and conceptual thinking in parallel to her design skills. She has a passion for branding and defining identities, while embracing the art of storytelling through her Omni campaign work. In her free time, she enjoys people-watching in Milwaukee coffee shops, exploring the racks at local thrift stores and lounging with her two cats.
