Katy is an Information Designer with a passion for graphic design, art, and research. She loves creating print materials such as posters, advertisements and anything informative to an audience. She enjoys using her artistic skills to make posters of her favorite tv shows, video games, and bands. Katy has worked with Mount Royal University as one of their main designers in the ES Communications department for over a year. During her time, she has learned how to design elements to help students engage and overcome issues they may be facing. Working at MRU has expanded her skill set and pushed her boundaries by working with new departments and learning more about how the services at MRU help students excel, such as Wellness. Katy also has a passion for animation and video game design and hopes to excel in her skills more in both of those areas.
