What were your honest thoughts when you heard about this project?
" I first heard about the juniors doing it when I was a sophomore and I thought it sounded like an amazing opportunity. Then I became a junior and it became terrifying."
Who is your favorite artist that you listened to?
"Kandace Springs. I enjoyed her unique and upbeat style."
What was your process for creating your posters (in terms that us non-graphic design students can understand)?
"My process started with me making collages out of paper. Then I took pictures of my collage materials. I used those pictures as my backgrounds. I made a pattern because the repetition in jazz creates a pattern. I made the pattern out of the artists name because how personal and individual jazz is."
Of your posters, which is your favorite?
"My favorite is my Kandace Springs poster because I like that background and pattern the best."
Where are you hoping your career will go after KCAI?
"I have no plans but I am excited about the possibilities."
Where can we find your work?
