BALL STATE UNIVERSITY
I knew from a young age that I wanted to pursue a career in art, but it was not until my senior year of high school that I knew I wanted to be a graphic designer. Fast forward three and a half years, and now I am a senior completing a major in Visual Communication and a minor in Art History. I enjoy graphic design because I have the opportunity to create visual stories and messages that benefit and help other people. I am currently a Team Lead at Studio 165+, an award-winning, student-led design studio and have been able to participate in several design projects for clients in Muncie IN. I am thankful for Studio 165+ because I have learned how to work with other designers and gain real-word experience prior to graduation. Additionally, I participated and won second place in a 24-hour design competition in Fall 2021. When I am not working on design projects, I enjoy watching movies, trying new recipes, and taking care of my plants.
WHERE WERE YOU BORN AND WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW?
I was born in Princeton NJ and I currently live in Muncie IN.
IF YOU COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE?
I would like to live in London, so I plan to move there after I graduate.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU’RE FACING AS A DESIGN STUDENT RIGHT NOW?
One of the biggest challenges that I am facing right now as a design student is keeping up to date with the software and industry advances. Each year new design applications become the standard for companies and therefore it can be difficult to learn the new software while balancing school projects. That being said, I enjoy learning different techniques from the applications and implementing the skills into my current design projects.
