I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

katia-photoI have a passion for what I do as a designer and educator. As a design mentor, I strive to inspire my students to become creative problem solvers with a sense of respect for themselves and for the field of graphic design.I want students to understand the connection between culture, creativity and design in order to have a deeper understanding of concepts behind visual solutions. With the ever-changing shape of the profession, flexibility and adaptability are necessities for students to succeed. I aim to engage students in exploration, creative and critical thinking, attention to detail, organization and craftsmanship as necessary qualities to succeed in the profession.
