SESSIONS COLLEGE FOR PROFESSIONAL DESIGN
Kylie Welsh is a California-based graphic designer and is currently a fourth year student working towards her BFA in Graphic Design. Having always had a passion for design and problem-solving, she took a special interest in packaging, branding, layout design, and typography throughout her schooling career. Currently working as a freelance designer, she takes on projects that allow her to exercise her creative abilities in which facilitating visual connections is top priority. She believes that great design is “serious, not solemn” and that the intrinsic values of art and design have the power to truly change the world – for the better. When she’s not working on projects, you can find her hiking in the National Cleveland Forest, gaming, drawing, or riding her dirt bike.
IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS AND CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
Something big, elaborate, and educational such as Poster No. 524. Finding new meanings in graphic design, through deconstruction and contextualization.
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
I am currently reading through “How To” by Michael Bierut, listening to Atmosphere, and (re)watching The Office.
WHO IS SOMEONE YOU LOOK UP TO IN YOUR FIELD?
There are many graphic designers I look up to; most notably would have to be Paula Scher. She is truly a master of her craft.
