Designers 9 + 10

Adriane Grumbetn

Is a professor at the University of Kentucky teaching marketing and advertising. She has been here couple of years, but started her undergraduate at University of Kentucky. Coming in was a art major and wanted to be a graphic designer. She took drawing and sculpture  while at U.K and loved it; but art wasn’t exactly what she wanted to do. Design became her focus, she says that design is “fun” and  is a way to problem solve. Adriane’s idea of art is that it advocates  a feeling and elicits emotion while design works with a client to solve problems it may not  always ”pretty”. Her focus is on marketing and advertisements, she does freelance on the side helping company’s sell there logos and events. She also mentions that she doesn’t always love what she produces which are making flyers, signage, and wedding invitations. Her pro filo doesn’t have a certain style since she is  creating items that are for a client in particular. Her views of design in the future is that it is going to be big in data and media, the designer is becoming an interpreter with media being the avenue in which design is shared.
