About 

My name is Savannah; I am a graduating senior set to achieve magna cum laude at the Savannah College of Art and Design this May. During my education, I was able to study abroad in Hong Kong and Lacoste, FR. Traveling has always been a passion of mine and seeing the distinctly diverse countries expanded my design knowledge. As I look back on my undergraduate work, I see a commonality that I aim to search for an impactful concept or theory and utilize it to cue design drivers. I was able to achieve this with my senior capstone, which focuses on music as a therapy to help Alzheimer’s patients reduce stress and improve memory. The space focuses on implementing nostalgic social spaces for all ages to come together.
