My name is (Lani) O'Neill.
I accidentally fell into graphic design in 2015, and I haven't looked back since. Two foundational classes and a high-school internship led me to working full-time as a designer after graduation. Two years later, I packed up and shipped out to the west coast in order to pursue a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design at Oregon State University. Now, I am shifting into new chapters of my life and my career.
As I move forward, what excites me is exploring design as a force for good; collaborating with underrepresented communities, decolonizing design pedagogy, and investigating how design systems can adapt for disabled users.
My graphic design work and digital art are supplemented by rubber-stamp carvings, silk-screen prints, and general craftery. When I'm not art-ing, I spend my time "critiquing" films (watching a lot of movies), rollerskating, reading (mostly non-fiction of the sociological flavour), and finding new gemstones to add to my vast and ever-growing collection.
I'm a queer, non-binary person, and my pronoun is 'they.' As I navigate through life, I consider myself a "safe person" to educate curious folks about queer culture and relevant language. Got questions? Talk to me :)
