BOWLING GREEN STATE UNIVERSITY
Lindsy Buser is pursuing a Master of Design (MDes) in Integrative Design. She was a BGSU graphic design undergraduate from 2005 – 2009 and started the master’s program in Fall 2021. In between undergraduate and graduate, she has pursued a variety of design work in multiple areas: agency, in-house, freelance, and remote. Additionally, she has taught design courses at BGSU. Her graduate interests include the “what, how, and why” of what we learn and exploring alternative ways of knowing that can develop into actionable and/or reflective knowledge. More specifically, her focus is developing tools, methods, and frameworks that help people navigate educational experiences among information overload. Beyond school and design (although they all blend together from time to time), her life includes a lively bunch of humans, dogs, chickens, and a cat. Lindsy enjoys creating handmade art, especially mixed media collage involving thrifted materials … or whatever weird/delightful stuff she has around the house.
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL INSPIRED?
Personal narratives, biographies, and everyday rituals among a variety of cultures. Quilts and chickens are pretty rad, too.
WHAT AREA OR AREAS OF DESIGN ARE YOU HOPING TO WORK IN OR SPECIALIZE IN?
While I would like to work in the educational realm, I am open to areas that are on the cusp of existence due to our rapidly changing world.
WHAT IS ONE THING THAT DESIGN SCHOOL HAS TAUGHT YOU THAT YOU DID NOT EXPECT?
I did not expect design school to be a catalyst for addressing and understanding myself at a much deeper level.
