Claire comes to design by way of art. Born and raised in the eccentric town of Denton, Texas, she grew up going to concerts, visiting museums, and witnessing her parents’ slow but steady mid-century modern redo of their home. She stayed local for college, earning a degree in Communication Design from UNT.
She got her first taste of design outside of school as an intern at Imaginaria in the summer of her junior year. The work was fun, challenging, and immensely educational, and it eventually landed her her first job as a graduate here at the studio. Claire is most intrigued by packaging and identity design but also enjoys playing with words as a copywriter and drawing pictures as an illustrator.
Her passions outside of design include playing guitar and singing, riding her bike, hiking, and perfecting the art of taco-making. This well-roundedness helps to inspire, balance and shape her as a young designer.
