ST. EDWARD’S UNIVERSITY SENIOR GRAPHIC DESIGN EXHIBIT
My name is Carli Walker and I am a Graphic Designer. My projects are curated on Adobe Illustrator, so you will see a lot of this type of digital work throughout my portfolio. This is one of my favorite ways of creating digital artwork. Follow my work as I figure out how to express myself through design.
Design expresses itself in many forms. One of my favorite forms, fashion, has drastically changed from what it used to be. In the past, graphic tees were introduced solely for the purpose of self expression. Fast forward to today, style is based more on what is currently trending. We go off of trends rather than what we personally enjoy. Where did we go so wrong? There are always two sides to a story, so there is still expression within fashion, but someone somewhere turned off the individual breaker. This project explored honesty within fashion and I created hoodies with genuine quotes on them to bring back this individualism that we’ve been skipping out on for the last 20 years. This is a notion of pulling people back into the style related to them. This is an introduction to consider how your clothes speak about the person you are. This is a project about how you see fashion through your individual lens.
About the Designer
Hi there! My name is Carli Walker, and I am a Graphic Design major. Residing in Austin, I am currently attending St. Edward's University and will be graduating this May. I have learned throughout my college experience how to get creative and put my dreams into action. My teachers have inspired me and assisted me throughout my struggles. I feel prepared to take on the real world! (whatever that means) While school is a huge part of my life, I have a lot more going for me than my degree! I am a daughter, a sister, and a companion. What you’re seeing here is a curation of my designs over the years. Many hours of work and thought went into these works. So stay a while, and enjoy!
