Hello, I am Marina Cavanagh! I am a recent graduate from the Graphic Communications concentration at Kennesaw State University. My love for color and desire to create minimalistic designs fuel my compositions. With my Russian-American upbringing, I am able to contribute a different perspective into my designs. While I do love creating illustrations, my main passion lies in advertising. I am always glad to help wherever you may need me though and I see any opportunity as a chance to grow and improve as an artist. I am excited for the opportunity to be working with you on your next project!
Asha Ford is a multidisciplinary artist who will be graduating with her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts in Graphic Communications in Fall of 2021. She enjoys anything relating to art and design.

She has worked with both large companies as well as non-profits such as Yamaha, NetworkPenisula and more. She is a deeply curious being and becomes excited at the chance at realizing the invisible through her visual art abilities.
When she is not making art, she enjoys teaching herself new things such as the Spanish language or new skateboarding tricks.
