VHS TAPES & HIGHWAY BILLBOARDS

Whether it was deeply concentrating on my Little Mermaid coloring book with a box of worn-down crayons, or organizing my Disney VHS tapes based on what covers I thought looked the prettiest - I have always been a visually passionate person. 

I remember sitting in the very backseat of my family's minivan, driving from Green Bay to Madison, listening to N*SYNC on my discman, staring out the window up at a billboard and thinking… "I wonder what those people wants to tell us as we drive by... I bet if they moved that word over there and made the picture bigger, more people to notice it."

I'll never forget that memory. First of all, because I'm weirdly proud of myself for thinking so deeply about a random billboard. And secondly, because at that age, I didn't even know there was a specific job that was responsible for that - a graphic artist. 

That was the magical moment - in the backseat of a Honda Odyssey with my padded headphones turned all the way up - that I realized my true passion for design (and boy bands).
