Research Interests

Graphic Design; Art Education; Painting

New Media, Social Media and Design for the Crowd. Change presents a challenge in graphic design. Design has now become an interdisciplinary role within elaborate systems of communications. Design work must be executed over a variety of media platforms. Emerging technologies demand design/designers be adaptable. My research focuses on this change and how it might apply to an undergraduate curriculum.
