COLLEGE FOR CREATIVE STUDIES (CCS)
I’m a Junior graphic design student, born and raised in the Dominican Republic. Currently, I am pursuing my BFA at the College for Creative Studies. My passion for art developed at a young age, and after graduating high school, I was introduced to the odd world of graphic design during my freshman year of college. I didn’t choose it, it chose me. I was drawn to graphic design because of its strong visual communicative powers, and its creative freedom. Through my college experience and the incredibly experienced faculty, I developed a knack for branding, motion, and UI/UX. I consider myself a flexible, creative, and observational designer that grows through the challenges and struggles. Whenever my inner child takes command, I am able to create simple, quirky, and dynamic visual stuff. I admire and care about the tiniest detail in every design aspect, where I am able to bring fresh perspectives into my work by taking information and turning it into a new artistic approach. On the weekends, when I’m not immersed in work, I like to spend time with my friends and family, dancing, or binge watching shows.
IF YOU COULD HAVE COFFEE WITH ANY HISTORICAL FIGURE, WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
It would definitely be coffee with Paul Rand.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOUR TIME IN DESIGN SCHOOL HAS TAUGHT YOU THAT YOU DIDN’T EXPECT?
The realization of how small I am and how big the world is. I began to see and appreciate the mundane and the madness of the world in a different way. This gave me the opportunity to sharpen my perspective and acquire with more criteria the things that surround me.
