I have one year of experience in a multi-disciplinary studio after graduating last year and being named one of GD USA's Students to Watch of 2018. My passion is in Branding and Typography in both print and digital mediums, and I was recognized by my University faculty for my typography. In the past year, I have developed an interest and working knowledge for animation and AR, and enjoy working with motion, which my studio has utilized me for.My greatest strength is in my conceptual thinking, which is my favorite aspect of design. I enjoy pushing the limits of every project. Developing and expanding my concept has pushed my work across different mediums, which is why many of my projects involve material and mechanical exploration. Every design decision I make is tied back to my core concept, and I don't believe in designing for only visual gratification. My craft is evident in my portfolio because all of my projects are hand-built, a result of my own engineering and printing. As stated by OMSE, one of my favorite type foundries, "concept and craft demand equal consideration for any project to reach its full potential", which matches my own philosophy and approach to all my work.I believe what makes me the best fit for WGI is that I am unafraid to take risks, I am equally confident in my skills as I am open to improvement and mentorship, and I am as independently driven as I am a team player. My upbringing has given me a global perspective and determination to succeed, which has driven me to throw myself into what I feel most passionate about. If chosen for WGI, I know that I would take advantage of every opportunity thrown my way.
