About Me

  • Well, I'm Liv Shock and I am a visual communicator. When people ask what that means I tell them "I make cool stuff." I want to gather experience in multiple fields to challenge myself in the design environment and look forward to what the future has in store.

  • Senior quote:
    I'm a kind of a "fly by the seat of my pants" type of gal.

  • Why did you choose VCD?
    I could never see myself doing anything else.

  • What inspired you to be a graphic designer?
    I've always just kind of used art as an outlet growing up.

  • Favorite keyboard shortcut:
    Shift + command + [ and shift + command + ]

  • Worst VCD moment:
    During a small group critique I had a pretty dope illustration and was really proud of it, but the type was not working. My professor called over the class and said, "Okay, this is exactly what you don't do."

  • Best VCD moment:
    Going to Trumbull County to present our "Hope Dealt Here" campaign for the Opioid epidemic and leaving the audience in tears with the final word.

  • What inspires you the most?
    Knowing this is all going to be worth it.

  • Goals in 5 years:
    I'd love nothing more than to just be settled and happy wherever I end up.

  • What is your #1 pet peeve?
    When you like an idea you have, but the prof hates it.

  • What song do you have completely memorized?
    Unfortunately, Colt 45

  • What movie title best describes your life?
    Not a movie but for sure shameless

  • What is the luckiest thing that has ever happened to you?
    Pulling an all nighter to finish a project due early in the morning and getting an A on it

  • What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?
    I don't really know, but I like when people say they're proud of me.
