Born in Poughkeepsie NY, John Olson is currently a second year graduate student in the Communication Design program at Pratt Institute. His undergraduate degree is in Illustration from the Columbus College of Art and Design. After graduating in 2009, John worked in Columbus OH for three years as an interactive designer before moving back to New York and returning to school. The decision to continue his education at Pratt was spurred by a desire to explore more conceptually challenging projects, and to create a more meaningful contribution to the creative community. John states: “My time at Pratt has been invaluable. I have been able to work with talented professors and design firms in New York, and even collaborated internationally with students from the St. Joost academy in The Netherlands. I am thankful for the last year and a half, energized for my last semester, and excited for the challenges that lay ahead as a working professional in New York City.”
