BFA Graphic Design Show | Spring 2021
As a designer, creating is the way I practice mindfulness. Mental health isn’t taken as seriously as it should, so for my senior project I launched Cherished Peach. Cherished Peach is an eco-friendly, mental health awareness apparel brand. I’ve learned that before you can be kind to others, you first have to be kind to yourself, so I wanted to create a brand that reminds consumers to practice mindfulness, sustainability, and to spread kindness. In my designs, I aspire to evoke openness, warmth, and tranquility.
With the stress of school, work, and life in general, many of us forget to take care of our mental health. So, for my senior project I wanted to create designs that would motivate others that struggle with mental health like I do. One of the things that helped me in some of my darkest times was coloring. I created several motivational coloring pages that encourage mindfulness. As well as stickers and posters that will act as daily reminders to be kind to your mind. With bright colors, and engaging illustrations I hope to inspire others to practice self-care.

Striving to cut through humanity's intricacies and reveal genuine conversation, there only lies the utmost gratitude for the opportunities to get to know the individual story of a person. The spark formed from authenticity combined with compassion forms a transformative force for society’s structure. Austin Greene views graphic design as the physical vessel for this force.
I am a martial artist, artist, graphic designer, musician, writer, and science enthusiast. I strive to create things as they are depicted towards the general public. Hailing from Boca Raton, FL, I had an interest in science and art since I was very young. Animals and science are often depicted in my work.

One of my greatest passions is running my very own vintage online clothing store. However, being an artist and designer has left me wanting to create and design original pieces. So I have launched a sister shop to my original shop on a new website to sell my original designs on hoodies, patches, tote bags, stickers, and more.

As a graphic designer, I work hard to develop designs that speak both to me and to others about the beauty that exists in the world. Part of my process before I begin designing is to read as much as I can about the subject at hand. I do not merely want to capture the image but rather, with careful, colorful decisions, I want to give that society life once more. I try with every finished work to breathe life into the piece. The challenge, as with any art, is not to stick with the known, but instead explore new things to create masterpieces.
