Growing up as a “bit of an artist,” Ally has always enjoyed expressing themselves through non-verbal means. Art was their mode of expression, and the way they centered themselves. Wanting to bring that same mindset into their professional life in a more structured manner, they found Graphic Design.
Ally finds herself inspired by the creativity of others. Digesting the approaches and techniques provides a “better appreciation of their creations”. Her approach to design is fostered by a strong mentality to look for multiple solutions to a design problem, not just one.
Their biggest lesson to date? “We are all fighting our own battles, and it’s useless to compare yourself to others, even a previous version of yourself. Circumstances change, we struggle, we adapt, we thrive.
