Graphic Design evolves design fundamentals into powerful tools for communication, problem-solving, and creative strategizing.

Through a research-oriented and project-specific approach, I consider my creative practice as one which views the "design as problem solving" model in a holistic and critical way. I don't create solutions which claim to be the most objectively correct or efficient, rather I answer with work which is thought provoking, aesthetically challenging, and above all, meaningful.

What is your most memorable

experience at KCAD?

My most memorable experience at KCAD is probably the most rewarding one as well. Although small in numbers, being a part of the KCAD AIGA + IxDA club was a really great experience during my last semester here. It was inspiring to be a part of such a supportive structure and to participate in group events and trips together.
