Mercedes Ulaszewski

Graphic Designer & Illustrator

I’m an illustrator, graphic designer, and marketing mage currently based in Rochester, NY and making my way Seattle, WA this fall (2022). I’ve always drawn but it wasn’t until college were I fell in love with graphic design. Over the next several years, and several jobs, I came to grow to love strategy and marketing. My love of art follows me from work to home. I love to create content for my social media from personal illustrations, stickers, and customized art toys. When I’m not working, working on freelance projects, or my own personal art, you can find me deep into a book or manga. Or if its a nice day, outside enjoying the weather with a cold iced coffee. I truly believe in making the world better, one design at a time. After a decade working in different sectors within the design industry, I’ve realized that one good design can really change things for someone. In 2023, I plan to focus not only on my career, but pushing myself toward being a full time artist.
