Skylar Richard

My story begins at Mount Allison University where I majored in Philosophy. My intention was to apply to the fine arts program, but after missing the deadline I decided to apply as a ‘normal’ student. That is when I decided I wanted to be a lawyer. However, when I was studying for my LSAT, and after much back and forth with my Dad who was a lawyer at the time, I was convinced the career choice wasn’t right for me. Like many others my age, I graduated without a plan.

Roughly 6 months after graduation I had a conversation with a friend who worked below a design agency. She would venture upstairs from time to time on business and was convinced she had met a group of people who were of the same mind as me – we were all creative, sarcastic and easy going. The only difference, though, was that they were being paid for it. Shortly after I applied to a private Art and Design College. I graduated at the top of my class.

I’ve been working in the industry since 2014. I’ve had my fair share of creative roles – from wireframes, business case design strategy, web and product design, illustration, branding, you name it. I’ve dipped my toe in every body of water related to design. One thing remains the same though – I like to keep it simple, impactful and most importantly, useful.
