SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY, S.I. NEWHOUSE SCHOOL OF PUBLIC COMMUNICATIONS
Zuzanna Mlynarczyk is a senior graphic design student at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. After realizing that nothing else is as exciting as a phenomenal typeface, Zuzanna has leaped into the world of design, immersing herself in as many opportunities as possible. When on campus, Zuzanna creative directs the graphic design team for FADS (Fashion & Design Society), a student-run design collective. She also models and creates clothes for the group’s semester fashion shows. When she’s not clicking and dragging away in the Adobe suite, she’s DJing, screen printing or doing yoga. As much as she enjoys working digitally, she finds it important to exercise her mind and body in ways that expose new creative excitements and forms of inspiration. She is currently an intern for Nowhere, a 3D virtual meeting Space.
IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS OR CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
100% I would want to organize and design an electronica concert. Everything from the physical posters to digital promotion to merchandise to media graphics and even the lighting design. To use design to translate the musical atmosphere into visuals. And I would be the dj too.
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
I’m always listening to music, most days its Daft Punk or bands in similar vein that make me want to jump around. I love to watch animated shorts like Midnight Gospel or Love, Death and Robots.
IF YOU WERE GOING TO WRITE A BOOK, WHAT WOULD IT BE ABOUT?
I would probably write a book about color. How it acts in different spaces, how it can affect the way you feel — maybe even how it tastes or smells.
