Marissa Meier
Student Spotlight: December 2015

Background

As a student of Design and Art History ‘17, I seek a versatile career in design, one of the largest majors in the college of Letters & Sciences. I am always trying to get out of my comfort zone that has become Cruess Hall. After changes of majors, flopping through some engineering courses, and binge watching TED talks for inspiration, I decided I should stick to design and make the most of the hobby I have always had.

My style is very simple, not too much detail, flat and to the point. I definitely feel like color is a big piece of my work, and I do believe that it is a tool and not a requirement. My style has grown a lot through my experiences; although I have learned a lot in design studios, I have taken so much more from my experiences outside of Cruess Hall. I love to take classes outside of design every quarter. This keeps me invested in my education and has also led me to apply design thinking to new areas. 

Work

I am a designer, illustrator, thinker, and coffee gulper. I currently work for Student Affairs Marketing and Communications and ASUCD’s Creative Media as a graphic designer. I work with amazing people who have provided me with a source of learning that cannot be replaced. 

Working with fellow BMES officers, iOS developers, and SAMC communications specialists have produced a variety of experiences and furthered my curiosity within and beyond design.
