About Me

Abbagail Koch

Graphic Designer | INTP

Driven by a passion for creativity, I embarked on a journey to become a graphic designer during my time at South Technical High School. However, my trajectory changed, when a chemistry professor at community college sparked my interest in forensic science. After transferring, I soon realized that design was my calling. In fall 2020, I graduated with a Bachelor of Art in Graphic Design from Columbia College.

As I stepped into the world of graphic design, COVID was impacting the world. Through diverse experiences in diverse industries ranging from wholesale manufacturing to marketing agency focused on small business, from my internships and design position.

I discovered a profound passion for sustainability leading to my pursuit of  my Master’s in Sustainable Design at Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
