Meet Erin Moran ’20, illustrator
“I brainstormed how COVID has impacted my life and the lives of other students. Technology has been a huge part of everyone’s lives and although we are all distant, the technology brings us together.”
What is your typical process for brainstorming a graphic design? Do you usually start by sketching a design before converting it to graphics? Do you start on the computer?
“I skip right to the computer to sketch my designs. I think about what I want to do and just go for it.”
Do your plans after graduating from St. Mary’s involve a career in graphic design?
“Yes! I will be a professional graphic designer; it’s what I want to be and I’m going to work hard to achieve that goal.”
What advice would you give to anyone interested in pursuing a career in graphic design?
“The best advice I can give someone is to never give up and to really pay attention to typography. Typography is everything.”
