Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
Leland W. Powers
Forms of mind comes from my belief that art is a reflection of one’s own life journey. Everyone interprets life differently. For me, it is a conceptual journey where ideas are realized in form. Concepts are present through every moment of my existence, churning and waiting to be developed. Graphic design is very much a fine art to me… it is born of the same world as all other art forms and has beauty and conceptual worth, as well as commercial value. Graphic design communicates ideas to an audience, and if done well, can communicate on a deeper level. Through the combination of layout, type, image, color, and concept, a designer can touch someone, showing thoughts and ideas too difficult to communicate on a superficial level. This is the kind of design I strive to create.
