Stephanie graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design and a Minor in Art History from Western Michigan University. Determined to work with the best and challenge herself, she moved to New York City two weeks after graduation without any immediate job prospects.

Currently, Stephanie is a Mid-level Graphic Designer with Graham Hanson Design, where she specializes in Environmental Graphics and Print Design.

Inspired by the energy and passion within New York City, Stephanie also enjoys designing and drawing in her spare time, focusing on print design and digital painting. Using her vast knowledge of art history, acute attention to detail, and an eye for aesthetics, Stephanie is capable of tackling any design challenge and creating fresh, exciting work.
