Today we present the ever lovely @lizziemsuarez Lizzie is a graphic designer and illustrator. Initially, she’s self-taught but is now getting her BFA in Graphic Design at FIU right here in Miami!
So Lizzie, what pushes you to meet your goals?
“Knowing that I’m gonna be able to chill out after I reach them, remembering how good accomplishing something feels, and being able to say that I *did* that!”
How about self-care, what is it to you? How do you practice it?
“Self-care for me are Fridays when I have nothing to do. I open the blinds on my windows, put on either Steven Universe or the Office, light some incense, and just lay in bed all day.”
Ummmm HELL YES! Same!! So, tell us what is something you can’t live without, outside of electronics?
“I cannot live without a clean room! Since my bedroom is my workspace, I always need my room tidy before I start working. I swear it makes me like 10x more productive.”
What is one trend you hope never goes away?
“Musicians caring about visuals! I feel while a lot of new artists forget that the music is just the half of the work. I’m here for singers, rappers, entertainers, in general, taking advantage of the importance of album artwork and tour promo and collaborating with visual artists and designers (like myself)!”
What did your younger self-want to be when you were an adult?
“My kid self-wanted to draw for people! Little me didn’t know what a graphic designer was when she was drawing replica Spongebobs for her classmates in Kindergarten, but I’m sure she’d be very happy to see what I’m doing now!
