BA - Graphic Design
As a designer, I am passionate about projects that allow me to think conceptually and unusually, where I can find unexpected solutions that engage viewers, customers, or users in new and exciting ways. Whether I’m designing a poster or a comprehensive brand, I want to engage people in a way that makes them pause and pay attention.
BA - Graphic Design
We all have a lot of choices to make regarding social, moral and environmental considerations. As a designer, my primary goal is not simply to create a self-serving aesthetic, but to truthfully voice unheard causes, innovations, or products that will positively impact the world as a whole. I have no interest in making people think they need things—I would much prefer to help them get in touch with the things that they might truly be lacking. There is positive innovation to be had in every aspect of every industry; to adapt complacency would be to deny design’s onward nature. Though this kind of thinking might not bring me easy success, it gives me great optimism towards the impact I can have on the world and the shifts that it can make. Thanks for reading!

BA in Design with a minor in Business Administration
I love coconut ice cream bars, the color orange, and thick wool socks. I’ve come to really like editorial design and hope to work with magazines at some point in my career.
BA in Design
I graduated from Washington State University with my Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design in May 2011. During my last year at Washington State I took several graphic design courses in addition to my other studies. I quickly realized how much I enjoyed graphic design, too, and how it could improve my skill set as an interior designer.
BA in Design with a minor in English
Spends time on the internet, drawing and reading unscrupulous things. Has an unhealthy obsession with shows...and movies...and video games...God damn it, don’t judge me! I can stop when I want...Only after I finish this episode.
BA in Design and Industrial Design
Washington grown. Extremely tactile, its all about the materials. Being able to breathe life into a brand or product and give it its very own story is what keeps me up all the hours of the night. I am also fortunate enough to look like two popular memes...( ermehgerd and grumpy cat)
BA in Design Production
Annika grew up on a small farm and orchard in Wenatchee, Washington. She was accepted into Western's Design program in 2008, and continued to build her portfolio at school. Her summers were spent in a treehouse back home as she helped on the family orchard and conjured up ideas. Interested in pursuing Design further, Annika applied and was accepted for an additional year of study for a BFA degree. She has delved into illustration, packaging, branding, book-making, and story-telling, and is looking forward to continue being challenged while staying true to her farm-girl beginnings.
