Kay Roderick

Visiting Assistant Professor of Art

Kay Roderick received their M.F.A. in graphic design in May 2022. Three years in art school was a much different experience than their undergraduate degree from Augustana. Much of their design work involves generative methods of making and the freedom that can be derived from those. Breaking away from current design orthodoxies and bringing others along with them to experience new playful ways of making is what they strive for in their classroom/studios.

For fun they pretend to know about fractals and tessellations while finding ways to incorporate them in their visual graphic design language. Roderick enjoys making with many materials, including 3D resin printers, screen printing and wheel-thrown ceramics.
