Graphic Design Teacher
What do you love about design?
I love that at the end of the day, design is effective communication. Even people who wouldn’t consider themselves creative often have strong reactions to design—that feedback and interaction is exciting.
Why do you teach?
The Shillington course gave me the ability to completely pivot my career and pursue something much more suited to my interests and strengths. I’ve been lucky to be able to share my experiences through panels but am very excited to teach an entire course.
Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.
After Shillington, I joined King & Partners as a designer on a small creative team. I worked on digital advertising, e-commerce websites, branding, and art direction. In the past year, I went freelance and have been working with Red Antler on brand identity projects. My husband and I are launching our own content & design studio called House of Wallis.

If you were a typeface, what would you be?
There’s no way I could choose! But an all-time favorite typeface is Highway Gothic. I love seeing it on road signs.
