Nikki Arnell

Associate Professor of Graphic Design, Arkansas State University (Dept. of Art + Design)

An obsession with the communicative aspect of art led Nikki Arnell first to advertising.  Moving from Midwestern Indiana to Denver, Colorado, she began a decade in the fast-paced and exciting world of advertising. From design for local shops to art direction for mega-brands like Procter & Gamble and Coors Brewing Company, this time provided experiential education and awards.

However, an unexpected teaching job while freelancing changed her desired career path and so she returned to school to earn a Master of Fine Arts. Ms. Arnell then took a position with Arkansas State University’s Department of Art + Design where she continues to push the expected in graphic design by balancing the commercial sell and gallery aesthetic.

Since this time, she has presented research at international academic conferences from Los Angeles to Tokyo while continuing to create freelance design and exhibit artwork. Grants received have allowed her to study briefly both in Istanbul, Turkey and Barcelona, Spain. Ms. Arnell also greatly enjoys the speaking invitation to any national AAF chapter as she meets new people and sees new places! She happily resides in Memphis, Tennessee, a city that is alive with a deep culture and history worth studying every day.
