UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN
Casey Rheault is a designer at the University of Michigan studying Art & Design with an Environment minor. In his time at the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, he has become inspired by design’s power to be a universal communicative tool and its ability to break down the most complex of ideas. Casey has been able to explore a variety of design contexts. During the Summer 2021, he worked with The Detroit Neighborhood Entrepreneurs Project in 2021 to streamline restaurant operating procedures, and in the Fall 2020, he was a part of a student team that designed alongside the Creative Campus Voting Project to encourage and facilitate student voter registration. These experiences have shaped his interests in exploring communication design’s role in built environments.
