Keri Morris Johnson
I started design school after graduation from Furman with a Fine Arts degree in one hand and not a clue of what I was going to do in the other. I was thrilled to have been accepted at the Portfolio Center in Atlanta and moved quickly from SC to GA to get started just three weeks after graduation.
I was in school back at the dawn of time, otherwise known as the era before computers. I got my first Mac my very last semester of design school. I did everything by hand back in school and am self-taught on the computer with Photoshop and Illustrator.
One of the main reasons I went back to attend the Iron Yard Raleigh is to brush up on my skills, and learn HTML, CSS, and have a focused and fast learning program. I decided this style of learning is best for me due to my stage of life as well as already graduating from Furman, the Portfolio Center, attending culinary school at Sandhills Community College and UI/UX Design at the Iron Yard Raleigh.
I am an avid video gamer as my husband is a Twitch streamer and I run his PR/Social Media and do his design work. I would love to get my hands into design for the video gaming industry, but am interested in anything fast, changing, fun, and even a bit crazy! We have 3 rescue dogs: Jilly Bean, Bitsy, and Birdie, and I love to travel, blog, take photos, and share my fantastic finds within the culinary realm of food, beer, and wine.
