Kelsey Sugg

Junior Designer

Kelsey is a well-rounded designer obsessed with everything graphic design and branding. She’s got a knack for typography and illustration and takes pride in her heavily hands-on, “a little bit old-school” process. Instead of hunkering down in front of a screen, she begins each new project in her sketchbook creating a roadmap for her final designs. A recent grad of the College for Creative Studies, Kelsey fell in love with Skidmore in her final year of school and the feeling was—and remains—quite mutual.

ARTIST CRUSHES

Van Gogh has been my main inspiration forever. Even as a kid I was drawn to his style and life story. Also, modern-day illustrators Dinara Mirtalipova and Tom Haugomat.

WHY I LOVE DETROIT

I love the way the city embraces its mural art and old-style architecture.

Non-Guilty PLEASURE

I’m really into super cheesy Sci-Fi movies and shows. Syfy’s Face Off is my favorite.

MY IDEAL MEAL

An authentic margherita pizza from an old pizzeria in Italy, with Founder’s Rubaeus Beer.

MY KIND OF FUN

Exploring used book stores for hours to find the one book I want to add to my library.
