Emily Morris, Graphic Design Creative

P: (970) 491-0703 | lsc_design5@mail.colostate.edu

Emily Morris is a third year Landscape Architecture student at CSU with an eagerness for learning all creative trades. Raised in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, those towering beauties have embedded a hunger for exploration deep within her soul. She lives to discover the most isolated areas of nature out there, especially the ones that take blood, sweat, and tears to find -- a phenomenon she calls, “type two fun”. When Emily combines this intensity and exploration with her design work, amazing things happen. This creative lady seeks challenge far and wide and is eager to meet new challenge, as well as expand her creative boundaries, in her time with Colab. When she is not lost in a design, or running around in the wild, she thoroughly enjoys rock climbing, watching disgustingly happy movies, dancing all crazy, tearing through books, and spending time with the strange people she calls friends and family.
