Since age 4, I had always been drawing, painting, animating, or designing something. It was only natural that I stumbled upon UArts. What I didn’t know was that I was fortunate enough to end up at a university with a graphic design program with a 50 year tradition of success. The program almost stretched me beyond my limits and, by the end of it all, I knew it had changed me for the better. I became more aware and respectful of my creative process. I never knew how my projects would evolve, and to me that is greatest gift of design thinking. It highlights endless possibilities while guiding you towards the truest path.
As a designer now at Lippincott, a legendary branding agency, in New York City, it’s patience and the willingness to be comfortable with doubt that yields some of my best creative work. These successes have resulted from a beginning where I never forecast the end, but trusted my creative process to arrive at an inventive solution
