Morgan Merrick – Inclusive Experience Designer

Summer in NYC

I’m an interdisciplinary designer with a passion for visual product and experience design. Currently, I am a senior Industrial Design at RIT pursuing a minor in Marketing. I will graduate in May whereupon I hope to work for a small design firm to streamline customer experiences and create engaging designs.

I first started my education at RIT as an engineer before deciding that design was my true passion, so I switched to Industrial Design and have used the breadth of the major to explore design principles like graphic design, animation, graphical user interfaces, and web design.  Throughout my design experience, I have held leadership positions and worked with teams to push meaningful experiences and superior design.

I have had the opportunity to work for a couple firms to enhance my design skills. I first had the opportunity to work as an interaction designer for a marketing firm that creates paper pop-ups and promotional campaigns for large clients like Samsung and Apple. It was a unique experience that allowed me to work on an inter-disciplinary team to create interactive products.

Furthermore, I also have a love for fashion and technology and seek to merge my skills through the application of graphical user interface and interaction design.

As a result, I had the opportunity to work for Kate Spade New York last summer, where I was able to work on the design team to conceptualize and develop accessories and luxury handbags. I got to work alongside fashion stylists and visual designers.

Thus, my education and experiences have developed my skills as a designer and pushed me to become a creative, out of box thinker. Following graduation, I hope to pursue a design position at a company where I can create influential consumer experiences. Check out some of my work or view my resume.

My name is Eboni, I study New Media Marketing and I love art! There is art in the way a wave crashes on

the sand or the way a meal is presented at a restaurant. You can say I’ve dedicated my life to the arts. I have bungee jumped in Mexico, jet skied in Aruba, and even cooked paella in Spain. I’ve been savvy with paint brushes and pencils for as long as I can remember. I consider myself to be very free spirited and open minded. So, when it came to picking a career for myself the choice was obvious! I was going to study… new media marketing.

Confused? Well let me explain. I believe marketing is a form of art. Anything that requires a level of creativity and innovation is art. Media Marketing done right has the ability to tap into people’s emotions, twist the way they think and move millions towards a common goal. If that’s not an art form I don’t know what is. Have you ever seen a n add the made you smile or a commercial that brought you dangerously close to tears? Well that is art… and art has always been a huge part of my life and by studying marketing I know it always will be.

I was able to apply the skill sets I learned into my work experience and have had huge impact on not only the company but the world! If you want to learn more about me and how I am doing my part to change the marketing world check out the links below!
