Hello! I'm Noelle Zies- graduate of The Ohio State University, world traveler, and resident of Columbus, Ohio.
Growing up I had a keen interest in arts, crafts, and anything that allowed me to explore and create visually. My interests continued to develop through my senior year in high school where I had the opportunity to design promotional items for my school’s production of The Sound of Music. I worked with my graphics teacher and musical director to test different designs and create something that was the perfect fit for our production. I had a blast learning along the way and altering my designs for different mediums. From that point on I knew that I wanted to continue pursuing graphic design.
My years in the Visual Communication Design program at Ohio State taught me that everything surrounding us has a purpose and is intentionally designed with an audience in mind. I explored design research, user experience design, branding, packaging, motion design, and many more aspects of Graphic Design. But what drives my passion for design is it's ability to create a unique experience for users and bring color into people’s lives. My passion is rooted in the idea that I have the ability to create a meaningful experience for someone, whether it’s their first time engaging with my design or their fiftieth. Design is meant to be universal and have a lasting effect. I intend to use the skills I’ve learned to continue creating meaningful experiences for people that will last forever.
