About

Olivia Durr, Web & Grphic Designer

Since I got my first computer, I dove head first into the digital art world. I taught myself as much as I could from graphic design to illustration all the way down to coding my own websites. That curiosity turned into passion and I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

I recently graduated from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania with a BFA in Communication Design. While at KU, I focused on Graphic Design and Interactive design. My knowledge spans from editorial layout to branding guides, UX/UI design to the code that makes up a website and much more.

When I'm not designing or coding, I'm usually pushing myself to learn something new, whether it be a new coding language or hobby.
