my name is HANNAH BROOKS
I was born and raised in Clarksville, TN and I love my hometown! I graduated from Austin Peay State University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communication and Graphic Design. After gaining my degree, I worked as
a graphic designer for United Methodist Publishing House
in Nashville,TN and MediaWorks in Downtown Clarksville. Both positions were very different, but helped me to grow tremendously as a designer. I love teaching the Juniors & Seniors in our program! During this phase of their design career they are building their portfolio, interacting with real design clients, and seeking internships. It's a truly rewarding experience.
my name is ERICA TROUT
I am a proud graduate of Rossview High School, class of 2004! I then attended UT Martin where I graduated in 2008 with a B.A. in Visual Communication and Graphic Design. Since then I have worked locally for Montgomery County, MediaWorks, PSR Events/The Tanglewood House, and last but not least, the Nashville Predators! Since the design industry is ever growing and changing, I continue to build my knowledge and skill outside of the classroom by working with local clients on various design projects in my independent freelance business. Teaching the Freshmen & Sophomores of our program is SO fun! Students walk through each program together and develop the
foundation of their design knowledge. We have a blast!
