Haley Luden is a Seattle-based designer and illustrator. In 2010 she attended Bellevue College to study drawing and animation and is currently pursuing a degree in visual communication design at Cornish College of the Arts. While studying at BC, she began working at Ground Zero Teen Center designing promotional materials for events and putting together a monthly zine. She now works as a designer for Brash Stash, a newly created apparel company, doing both apparel design and branding.
Before graduating from high school, Haley had extensive exposure to Japanese culture through several years of a Japanese language class and has since taken much inspiration from Asian art and design. She recently worked on a series of illustrations based on Chinese and Tibetan ceremonial masks, including references to unique cultural elements such as spiritualism and traditional shamanism. Since attending Cornish, she has begun to work primarily in Adobe Illustrator, but employs Photoshop and InDesign in her non-vector based pieces. Aside from her digital work, she enjoys doing graphic mixed media pieces and has been known to experiment with various unconventional media and canvases including retired drum heads and broken records.
