Hello and welcome to my online design portfolio. My name is Lauren Simicich and I am a senior Psychology major at Carnegie Mellon University. One of the classes that I am currently enrolled in this semester is Communication Design Fundamentals, which has required me to keep this blog to track my progress throughout the course. Although I’m a Psychology major and have no experience in the area of Design, I most definitely have an appreciation for its’ function in our modern day society and culture – more specifically, its’ potential to communicate meaningful and powerful messages. I hope to learn of how I can integrate aspects of design into my life, so that I can effectively portray messages and ideas that I truly believe in and am passionate about.
