C. Adele Flannery




My experience is in Fine Arts and Archival Studies. I am passionate about documents and design, two ideas that are, for me, seamlessly intertwined. My goal is to bring a little bit of archives into design, and a little bit of design into archives, for each to benefit from the other. This is currently being attempted by my research project on the archival practices of designers, where I hope to engage with stimulating people in creative settings. I love organizing everything from the clothes in my closet to images in a layout spread. I also maintain a personal blog where I collect all the things I find fascinating: adeleflannery.tumblr.com
