HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 22, 2015 – Experienced designer and educator Molly Seabrook recently joined High Point University’s faculty as a graphic design instructor.
Seabrook, who has taught design at HPU as an adjunct instructor since 2011, says she is excited to become a full-time instructor in the program, where she continues to share her real-world career experience with students and her perspective on the profession.
“Graphic design is a unique intersection of creativity, problem solving and technical skills,” Seabrook says. “One reason I’ve enjoyed it as a career is that it calls on so much of who I am. It is a field into which students’ specific interests and strengths can be channeled. It’s also a field that can effect meaningful social change. This drives a lot of the projects and conversations we have in the classroom.”
In a career spanning the globe, Seabrook worked with two highly regarded design studios in Perth, Australia. She has also worked for design firms in the United States and as a freelancer. In addition, Seabrook has taught art for elementary and secondary students in the Piedmont Triad area and in Xi’an, China.
Seabrook earned a bachelor’s degree in English and German at Guilford College and an associate degree in graphic design and advertising at Alamance Community College. She is currently completing a Master of Fine Arts in graphic design with Vermont College of Fine Arts.
