ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY
My name is Intan Zakri-Raja. I double-majored in Graphic Design and Communications at the University of Utah as an undergraduate student. I am currently studying for an MFA in Graphic Design at Academy of Art University. My thesis project aims to empower the next generation of female gaming developers. I’m a detail-oriented designer with a knack for conceptual solutions and innovative aesthetics. Making graphics work in a cohesive and flexible system is my specialty. I strive to bring out emotions in others. I also seek to make positive changes in people’s lives with the messages I portray. My skills range from illustrating and writing to animating and coding. I’m also a pretty good cat whisperer. I currently live with my husband and two cats in California. In my free time, you will find me drawing, writing, or playing video games (currently addicted to Sonic Frontiers and Final Fantasy XIV).
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL INSPIRED?
Video games, music, friends, and family. My husband is my number one fan.
WHAT AREA OR AREAS OF DESIGN ARE YOU HOPING TO WORK IN OR SPECIALIZE IN?
Motion graphics, though I also love UX/UI and editorial design. Working in the gaming or entertainment industry would be a good fit for me.
WHAT IS ONE THING THAT DESIGN SCHOOL HAS TAUGHT YOU THAT YOU DID NOT EXPECT?
Graphic design influences our lives in more ways than we realize.
