Meet Rachel: I've supplemented my Bachelor’s in Graphic Design with three minors — Economics, Marketing, and Philosophy. I believe my education and life experiences have built an ability to draw meaningful connections from almost anywhere. I aim for holistic, human-centered solutions that leave the world better than we found it: people first, product after. My goal is to begin my career as a part of a collaborative UX/UI design team, where I would be able to apply my skills and imagination towards innovation design.

Meet Tiffany: Born and raised Kentucky girl, I continue to broaden my artistic aesthetics with my Graphic Design BFA this spring, to add to my 2011 BFA in Interior Design. I've taken time to experience life and fully figure out what I truly want to pursue as a career. After five years in retail management working with visual displays and merchandising, I wanted another way to use my creative abilities. My goal is to utilize my design knowledge and retail experience to the fullest with a career in branding and environmental design.

Meet Hannah: When designing, I enjoy problem solving and diving into how designs are experienced and interacted with by people. This has led me to really enjoy print design, branding, and packaging, but I love all areas of design and am always excited to try something new. I've worked for two years as a design intern at UofL’s Office of Communications and Marketing.

Meet Maddie: Problem solving and content creation are two really big passions for me, and they are what drew me to this field. I love the process of cultivating an idea from start to finish and really thinking big picture about the project. I'm also a lover of the details and I love to create and write content for my pieces. Words can be so powerful when used correctly and I love to play around with them in my work. Design can be so much more than just aesthetics, and thats something I love. You've got to have beauty but also the brains to back it up.

Meet Lynn: Lynn will complete her degree with a Graphic Design major and Business Administration minor.
"As a UI/UX digital designer, I use my passion to hopefully benefit others’ everyday interactions…robotic and stereotypical. All I know is that I don’t want to design for design’s sake. I want to lead, impact, and communicate through design. Doesn’t that sound like fun?'
