For Karissa, design has always been much more than simply putting pen to paper, brush to canvas, mouse to screen, and whatever else you can think of. Growing up, she has always found creative inspiration in all shapes and forms. Whether it be through fashion, music, magazine editorials, and more, these mediums have shaped her love for all things design, constantly challenging her to develop as an artist and ultimately leading her to pursue her dreams through this program. With a love for mixing contemporary, minimal elements with illustration and typography, Karissa hopes to create multifaceted work that will inspire others while of course, staying true to herself. She looks forward to collaborating with other creatives and making her mark in the design industry.
