Morgan Wigle, born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio, moved to Minneapolis in pursuit of a Graphic Design major and career in 2017. Their personal work largely focuses on animals, whether it be fictional or real-life animals. This primary focus stems from always being very close with their own animal companions throughout their entire life. They have client-based experience through Design & Agency with brochure design, flyer design, branding, signage, letterheads, business cards, and poster making. Their most recent self-authored work focuses on the themes of animal rescue, and shining a spotlight on those often overlooked and forgotten.
I am a graphic designer with a multidisciplinary background. My pieces of art are vibrant, bright, and unique, and I have a passion for animals and video games, both of which influence a large sum of my work.
The mediums I use most consistently are vector lines, digital illustration, traditional illustration, watercolor, and occasionally markers.
My personal work combines my passion for animals, animal rescue, and art. I have created portraits of animals in both digital and traditional format, as well as combining both digital lines and watercolor. I also have created fan-art for a few games that I played as a child that included cartoon animals. My passion for all animals stems from a childhood in which my best friend was my rescued cat, Jasmine. Having been in my life since I was only three years old up until I was 16, she was a very integral part of my growing up. My art aims to help those animals similar to my own former best friend-- the overlooked, sick, and/or forgotten.
Professionally, I am a designer for Design & Agency at Augsburg University. That work consists of designing letterheads, business cards, posters, flyers, postcards, and brochures. I design these materials for Design & Agency clients, most of whom are nonprofit organizations.
My creative process starts off with ideation and finding out what I should or need to create. I then do research, and begin questioning what message myself or a client wants to convey. From there, I create iterations, review them, and then move forward with one or two designs or ideas to improve and polish further
