Graphic designers are often thought as the ones who “make it pretty”. A skilled designer can effectively communicate a message, build brand trust, produce an experience and inspire with the use of color, type and images.
With over 10 years experience as a professional graphic designer, Christina Ryan shares her knowledge to equip students with the graphic and web design skills necessary to put their best foot forward in their future careers and endeavors. Christina believes that every project should begin with a good brainstorm session and sketches—then brought to life on the computer.
In her free time, Christina can be found outdoors fishing, boating, and gardening with her family and sketching decorative motifs.
