What agency or designer inspires you?
There are so many places, and people I look to that make it hard to choose, but one agency that inspires me is Momentum.
What is your ideal job at the end of school?
I want to be in a job where I can learn and work alongside amazing mentors. I definitely would like to start my career as a designer and continue to build on my skills.
How do you deal with creative blocks?
I will either go on a walk to clear my head and get out in nature, or I will take a break and watch a show to get my mind off of things. I also turn to agency work online if I need an extra push!
If you could interview any creative, who would it be?
How do you want people to remember your work?
I want people to remember my work and be inspired. There are so many designers that I look up to. I can only hope to be seen that way one day and inspire students like myself.
If you had to rebrand a logo which one would it be and why?
I would rebrand the Spanx logo. I actually did a project rebranding it in school, and I think it would be so much fun to take it further and see what I could do with it! I think the logo doesn’t live up to the potential of the brand and how it is evolving today and a refresh would definitely be interesting!
