During her undergraduate studies in English literature and creative writing at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, Molly Crickman explored graphic design while working on university publications. After graduating in 2009, Crickman decided to pursue her interest in communication design in Parsons’ AAS program.
“Parsons pushed me to work hard, explore New York City’s resources, and connect with working designers. An internship at the American Museum of Natural History that AAS faculty recommended me for led to my current job,” she explains. Crickman quickly made her mark in New York’s design world: Her identity work for music venues, restaurants, and museums can be seen throughout the city. She has designed exhibitions for the museum and also worked as an exhibitions designer at Christie’s. Today she is a designer at Distillery Marketing + Design, a multiplatform design firm serving an array of national clients from its Madison, Wisconsin, headquarters.
