Headshot of Alison Sommer

hi, i'm ali! thanks for being here.
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, I am a graphic designer studying at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia.

Art has always been important to me in my life. From starting my own "art business" in second grade to sell paintings to friends and family, to taking as many AP art classes as possible in high school...art has always grabbed my interest. As I grew older, I found my passion in design and decided to pursue a career in it, without ever looking back.

In my work, I strive to create meaningful and intentional design. I see the potential design has to impact communities and form connections between unlikely sorts. My goal as both a student and artist is to continuously enhance my skills and experiences so that what I create will matter and impact.
