I'm Grace. I'm a graphic designer/illustrator/type nerd/music snob/hardcore dog person who splits her time between Charlotte, NC, and New Paltz, NY (where I attend school). Ever since high school, I've been fascinated with words and the way they look. And no, I'm not just saying that as a way to convince you that I'm a ~* super passionate graphic designer who really knows her stuff *~ (i am!!!!!); if you took one of my notebooks from high school, you'd see the lyrics of my favorite songs gently drawn in the margins, struggling to be beautiful in ballpoint pen ink, on loose leaf. When it came time to look for colleges and start thinking about careers (**gasp!**) I definitely thought to myself "wow... if only there was a career where i could draw words and letters all the time :(.” And the rest, as they (who?) say, is history. I am currently a senior in the Graphic Design BFA program at SUNY New Paltz, and I am set to graduate May 2018. My senior thesis combines my love of illustration, print design, and obsessing over the artistic work of other women in creative pursuits. More on that to come soon enough. For the meantime, feel free to get in touch with me (grace@gracecronin.com) or drop me a line on twitter/instagram (@gr4c3cr0n1n - tfw your real name is already taken). Thanks for reading!
