My name is Marissa Motas. I am a graphic designer from Molokaʻi, Hawaiʻi. I am a student at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa and am pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Philippine Language and Culture.
I have always had a passion for art and a desire to express my creativity. I’ve worked within various media, such as drawing and painting, however I find my true passion to be in graphic design. The possibilities of design are endless, as it allows me to create a variety of work that is not only visually pleasing, but also can convey layers of meaning. To me, graphic design encompasses all the things that I love. Because it is always evolving, it allows me to constantly learn, discover, and grow as a designer.
