In her own words
Hello! I’m a graphic designer, illustrator and stop-motion animator. I’m about to graduate with a Bachelor’s in Communication Design at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. I love using paper illustration and hand-made typography in my work. Apart from design, I love cooking, bike riding, reading, movie watching and walking my dog, Dude.
Words of advice
I love digital illustration and working with software but sometimes I have to get away from my computer. Don’t let this slow you down, there’s plenty of handmade aesthetic design solutions to be had. If that doesn’t do it, go for a bike ride, listen to music, read or go play with friends and don’t talk about design at all. Do whatever soothes your soul. Solutions always present themselves when you aren’t looking for them.
Always sketch, even if it isn’t good or relevant to your work, as Milton Glaser says, “drawing is thinking”. Get feedback, whether it’s from a teacher, friend or stranger, everybody has an opinion on design.
