Lane Mullins is a senior from Birmingham AL. He found an interest in design after happening upon a role as a graphic designer at a community center while living in Eswatini, and has since fostered a passion for design and gone on to work for various creative agencies while attending Auburn University. He is particularly fascinated by interactive design and branding, exploring how designers can harness technology to communicate, tell stories, and create new experiences. He also enjoys exploring typography as a tool for expression and finding ways to use type as image, manipulate it, and create unexpected solutions. As a student, Lane has received recognition from various design competitions, including GDUSA, Auburn University’s Juried Show, and others. After graduation, he plans to continue exploring branding and interactive design and the design opportunities presented by new and emerging technologies as he continues his career.
