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 examining how design systems work for differently abled users.
My graphic design work and digital art are supplemented by rubber stamp carvings, silk-screen prints, and the occasional acrylic painting. When I'm not art-ing, I spend my time "critiquing" films (i.e., watching a lot of movies), rollerskating, reading, 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 :)
