The COREY team is excited about the recent promotion of Liz Carter to Senior Designer. Here are a few facts you may not have known about her. Feel free to congratulate her below or leave a friendly comment.
Did you always know you wanted to be a designer?
I always knew that I wanted to do something creative for a living, but I didn’t have a clear idea about graphic design as a profession until I became more serious about practicing and studying art. It wasn’t until then that I truly began to understand design, and the more I was exposed to it, the more I was hooked.
What drew you to COREY?
I became familiar with COREY while I was at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). My professors always spoke highly of COREY. I was drawn to COREY for the type of projects and was really excited about the work, and after meeting everyone knew it was the type of team and studio that I wanted to be a part of.
What are your passions outside of work?
I grew up in Seattle, so coffee is a big part of my life. Someday I hope to learn how to roast my own beans and have a high-end espresso machine. I also enjoy making hand made books. I make them for fun although sometimes I don’t know what to do with all of them.
What excites you most about your new promotion?
I think it’s important for all designers to grow both personally and professionally. I feel honored that I’ve been able to do that during my time at COREY, and I think that with this promotion the most fulfilling challenges are still ahead of me.
What are some of your most memorable projects you have worked on so far at COREY? WHY?
I have enjoyed working on so many memorable projects during my time here, but one that stands out has been the web design of The Hasting’s Center’s “Help with Hard Questions.” This was a new website built for The Hastings Center to reach out to new audiences, and we were able to collaborate and work iteratively around ideas for building the site from the ground up. I really enjoyed working with both our project team and the Hastings team to design the site and plan for the way it would work.
