Bio

I'm a graphic designer and recent college grad living in Kansas City, MO. As a creative, my style is inspired by vintage era typography + illustration, and I strive for design that has character but stays timeless and relevant. As a human being, I love doing anything outdoors, hanging out with my friends, sitting down with a good book, or catching up on my favorite Netflix shows.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Skills

I lived in Paris for three years as a kid, so I speak a little French. I've attended various design conferences my school was involved with, including National Student Show in Dallas, Texas, where my work has been selected three years in a row. This year I won Best Original Typeface for the font I designed called Gecko. My last semester of college I was apart of Kiosk Art & Literary Magazine, a publication designed by a small group of my classmates that includes poetry, art, and photography created by fellow students.

1. What's the most courageous thing you've ever done?

I went skydiving last year! It's been on my bucket list as long as I can remember, but I didn't want to wait til it was time to kick the bucket to start ticking off my list. Definitely will be doing it again.

2. How are creativity and innovation related?

Creativity is sometimes mistaken for an ability that only artistic souls like painters, writers, designers, etc. can possess, but in reality, there is creative thinking potential in all of us. It's about using problem-solving skills and imagination to make something amazing. Innovation is about transforming that creativity to turn an idea into something practical, yet completely unique, to make the world a better place.

3. Why do companies need clarity and creativity?

In our increasingly digital society, it sometimes feels like our messages can get bogged down in the endless sea of social media. For a company's voice to really be heard, you need creative thinkers who want to stand out from the pack, but most importantly, you need to have a clear goal in mind from the beginning, or your intended message will become diluted and lost.

4. You have 30 minutes of free time. What do you do with it?

I'm probably in my hammock with my nose in a book.

5. What is one risky and bold goal in life you have? Or, if you could dedicate your life to solving one problem, what would it be?

When I had barely started college, I thought switching my major from Journalism to Visual Communications was risky. Now, I realize there are much bigger things to worry about. In learning about design throughout the years, I now understand how it can directly impact our society, our world leaders' decisions, the environment. It makes me so happy to see so many creatives out there designing for GOOD, being advocates and pushing for change. As a young person, climate change is an intensely scary issue to me, knowing that our world can look immensely different for my future children and their future children. We've waited much too long to address this, and I want to do everything in my capabilities to help save our planet, hopefully in some way through the power of design and innovation.

6. Explain your creative process

I'm big on drawing. As much time as I spend staring at my computer screen, I try to keep pencil in hand to write down initial ideas, doodles, word webs, everything. At the beginning of a project I can sometimes feel overwhelmed with the possibilities, so I write down everything I can think of and use the process of elimination from there. Once I have a more finalized idea on paper, I grab my laptop and start the grind.

7. What is the best advice that you have been given?

Do not worry about the things you cannot control. I tend to spend WAY too much time overthinking and wondering what I could have done better, how I could have changed the situation, when really it affects nothing except my mental health. Especially now in these uncertain times, I'm trying to have a more carefree attitude since it seems most things I worry about these days are out of my control.

8. What is your definition of creativity?

Like I was saying earlier, it's not some born talent that only artists possess. I perceive creativity as imagination in a sense, something that we all had as kids but maybe tends to hit the back burner as we get older. I wish we could be more celebratory of fun and inventiveness, even if our ideas sound totally crazy. Some solutions can only be arrived at after a frenzy of wild imagination.

9. What 10 songs are on your favorite playlist right now?

(This might be the hardest question yet considering I can only share 10) Skin Care Tutorial 2020 - tobi lou Need Your Love - Tennis The Adults are Talking - The Strokes Softly - Clairo Waves - Electric Guest HUMBLE. - Kendrick Lamar Borderline - Tame Impala I Love You, Honeybear - Father John Misty Cigarettes and Coffee - Otis Redding C U Girl - Steve Lacy

10. How do you want people to remember you?

I'm not overly loud or too quiet, probably somewhere in the middle. I laugh a lot, I'm compassionate and a good listener. I hope people remember my big goofy smile and easygoing personality.
