Greetings, earthling!

I'm Patrick Blanchard, a recent design graduate from Kansas. By day, I'm your average, everyday, girl-next-door, but by night you can find me in my lair concocting crispy type lock-ups and dreamy color combos.

Always up for a good challenge, I get goosebumps working on projects that push me to defy the limitations of Mother Earth. Soon, I hope to reach my bumpiest by joining a team that blends design disciplines to create experiences that challenge our perception of space, interaction and reality.

Right now, I'm working with HOK's Kansas City-based experiential graphic design team while seeking other full-time opportunities across the galaxy.

In no particular order, I hope to soon gain more knowledge in: window displays, installation art, urban interventions, guerilla art, mobile development, HTML, CSS, Ruby on Rails, balloon art, exhibition design, stagecraft, lighting design, street magic, poetry, jazz theory, 3D modeling, generative art, web app development, wayfinding, performance art, oil painting, Ableton Live + Launchpad, graffiti, multimedia, video game design, figure drawing, public art proposals & more.
