Hi! My name is Quinn, and I’m from Rochester, NY. I currently work as a creative intern for the Syracuse Football team doing both graphic work and photography for social media. Additionally, I’m the Co-Director of Design at University Union, Syracuse University’s programming board. At UU, I create promotional material for concerts and comedy shows while overseeing a team of designers. In the future, I hope to continue elevating brands with unique visual strategies.
I grew up in a family of fine artists, but I generally avoided the practice myself, trying to forge my own path. I picked up photography in middle school, and during 2020, pandemic-induced boredom (PIB) led to my discovery of graphic design. I fell in love with the ability to create whatever I wanted in Photoshop, and so I stuck with it. Now, I study graphic design at the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
