Let's Get to know each other
I'll go first - my name is Rene Guggenheimer! I was born & raised in Washington State where they slapped a PNW sticker on my forehead and sent me off into the woods to play. I’ve spent the last several years living in Moscow, Idaho where I recently graduated with a BFA from the University of Idaho, College of Art & Architecture. Though the Palouse area is beautiful, I nearly cry every time I see the ocean. My favorite song is "You Make My Dreams (Come True)" by Hall & Oates and if you're lucky you'll never have to hear me sing it. I love colorful things so I do my best to keep putting more out into the world.
"I love ugly. I hate mess."
I love colors that make your eyes hurt & fonts that are hard to read. I also like when things can be packaged into neat little boxes and everything aligns perfectly. I can appreciate complex design, but I find the most satisfaction in the simpler things; bold shapes, fun colors, and unique patterns. My goal as an artist & designer is to create work that is expressive, connective, and that helps people feel seen. In my personal work I strive to create things that bring me joy in the hopes that others can find the same joy and meaning in it.
Now it's your turn!
I'd love to get to know you too. If you have questions about my work, want to collaborate on a project, or just want to say hi...
